Almost Empty Nest

I am constantly amazed at the miracles that surround me. I didn't peek in on our little Hummingbird family all weekend. I knew that things would be very different when I came in this morning, and I was right. I don't know where the sibling is, and I like to think that Mom has taken him/her out for a test drive, but here we have one of our wee ones patiently learning the art of balancing on a branch. In another picture I took, you could just begin to make out the slight blush of emerald green starting to appear on its wing.

I will truly miss these folks when they grown on to take care of themselves. It will probably be any day now that they won't be returning.

Oh, if only our human teenage years could go so quickly.
