The Killer Hummingbird!

One day, while in Meeker, I was innocently sitting on a picnic bench talking to Laura on the phone. Out of no where a hummingbird flew down and tried to drink out of my ear! (Loopy will vouch for me, she heard me scream!) Now, this is not the first time that this has happened. It is at least the fourth that I can remember right off hand! Nevertheless, it freaks me out EVERY TIME! Here is a picture of my attacker. It is hard to see him, but have you ever tried to take a picture of a hummingbird? Let me just say that it is NOT the easiest thing to do!
I thought that this was a one time deal, the being "hummed" thing. But again, no. Every time I sat on this bench, the hummingbird would attack me! I investigated further and found...

A NEST! This particular hummingbird had nothing against me, she was just protecting her eggs! What a relief!
