    When Hummingbirds Attack II--Terror from the Skies

    There's a fuschia bush on the corner of the house that's in full bloom right now, and we have a hummingbird that's staked it out.

    Sometimes in plain sight:

    But go anywhere near its fuschia bush, and you WILL get threatened.

    It likes to do a strafing run from behind and buzz right past your ear (close enough so you can feel the breeze from its wings) and startle the bejesus out of you. Fierce little beast--good thing its body is only about as big as your thumb.

    It likes to hover right in front of you about face height--if you don't have glasses on, it actually can be kind of unnerving. Those suckers are FAST!
