    The Hummingbird Lady?

    Here is something pretty amazing!  This woman lives in a Hummingbird fly zone. As they migrated, about 20 of them were in her yard.  She took the little red dish from the hummingbird feeder, filled it with sugar water and this is the result.

    Her name is Abagail Alfano of Pine, Louisiana – she has been studying her hummingbirds daily.  One morning she decided to see if her hummers would feed from her hands.  She took the cup from the feeder, with water in it, and placed it in her hand.  As the hummers had gotten used to her standing by the feeder, they came over to drink from the dish.  She says they are as light as a feather.  Abagail also said, ‘if she had known her husband was taking pictures  she would have put on makeup.’

    Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Alfano for the wonderful photos!
