Look Ma! No Wings!

Sunbird 1

Haiku 213

Flits from branch to branch

With a cry, “Look Ma, no wings!”

Yes; Boys will be Boys!


Sunbird 2

Sitting in the garden with my morning cuppa, I listen to all the birdsong. Occasionally I see little feathered things in the tops of the trees.

Sunbird 3

This morning, I could see a tiny bird flying around the top branches of the syringa tree in the front garden. He perched for a moment, silhouetted against the sky, then flitted off elsewhere. A male Lesser Double-Collared Sunbird.

While clicking away with my camera I just happened to catch that first lucky shot; “Look Ma, No wings!”

Now you see it . . . ┬áNow you don’t.

Actually, you don’t!

I assure you, the scintillating tiny Lesser Double-Collared Sunbird, was sipping nectar from my honeysuckle.

I just wasn’t fast enough to capture it!
