    This one really captures the nature of the little spaceships flitting around. Did you know they have crazy long tongues. One flew into our glass door a few years ago and knocked itself out. So that the cats wouldn't get it I ran out and picked it up while it recovered. Its tongue was sticking out and it was something like three times as long as the hummingbird's body. Wild!
