a hummingbird 
tasting red chili lights

    first reaction was "huh"
    second reaction was "huh"
    third reaction was "huh"

    then... with a fourth consideration, something happened.
    there in the corner was this teeny weeny table.
    hummingbird wings were finally at rest, as it ordered up a tonic and gin.
    perhaps, nope, i know i am missing something.
    wondering if korinne cares to enlighten me.

    As of yet, Bob, I haven't offered gin and tonics to the local hummingbird population. ; ) It's rare enough to see a hummingbird in the house and even more amusing to see it trying to acquire nectar from plastic lights. Korinne

    thanks for the enlightenment, korinne; life does present some strange sights. i am reminded of the frantic blue jay's errant path into our kitchen.
