Hummingbird And The Bee

The wind calmed and the skies lightened. I fixed a bowl of popcorn, put my jacket on, grabbed my camera and went out on the deck to watch the birds.
The Hummingbird had been enjoying bee free feeding all day. She flew in and was surprised to find bees. She stopped for a second, perched up and seemed to be thinking.
She flew down to the feeder and fanned her wings. The Bees moved to the side. The Hummingbird and the Bees seemed to share.
I watched this dance for over an hour. She would feed, perch up, fan her wings at the bees and then get her drink. I finished my popcorn. An excellent story to watch on a restful afternoon.
