    The humming birds have been zipping around our flowering quince bush. They are astonishingly difficult to capture in flight, but I managed to catch one alighting for a moment.

    Love that ruby view, Jock! We have them, as well - zooming, drinking, defending their turf like beautiful bejeweled flying ninjas!
