Hummingbird / by Karie Luidens


A new friend joined me briefly as I watered the garden the other day—a hummingbird that flew directly into the spray of the hose and hovered there. I almost tipped the nozzle away, thinking it’d batter her, but then I realized she was drinking from the droplets in midair. Or at least that’s how it looked. Drink away, little one. And away she flew.
