A sweet gift from a lazy guy

I bought a hummingbird feeder for my wife, in celebration of our anniversary earlier this spring. It’s got a copper top, and the seventh anniversary is supposed to be copper… or wool. But really, who’s wearing wool right now?

So I give her the present and she says she likes the feeder, but then sternly warns me: “If you’re going to do this, you have to keep it full. They’ll come to depend on it.”

Needless to say, two months later the feeder is still sitting, undeployed, on the kitchen counter.

I’ll get around to it.

I do like hummingbirds, so in the meantime, here are a couple of cool shots from Mother Lode wildlife photographer Michi Watanabe.
