Gosh, I'm so jealous that you have hummingbirds in your garden, Ms.M.
Looks like nature's Olympics are in full swing there, as well as the lycra brigade.
Over here we're gearing up for the Paralympics. As the organisers said the other day: "We've had the warm up; now for the real thing."

Sweet and precious moments, Ms M, and the last one did make me wonder how many people are hitting the pavements, cycles and swimming pools with renewed enthusiasm at the moment. Even 1/100ths of a second counts - an amazing notion.

That's a long time for a hummingbird.

Ms M said...

Dive: Hummingbirds come through here on migration from June to mid September. It's such a treat to watch them! They are territorial; one usually perches in a nearby tree and will buzz any others who come to the feeder. This one is a Black-chinned male. He would drink, then look around warily for attackers, then drink again.

That's great that London is the site for paralympics! Are you going to any of the events?

Thank you, Shell. The cyclist was competing in the Iron Man Marathon where 1/100th of a second does count!

Yes, they are. I love the Pavarotti.

So you are having your own Olympics, huh? Hope you are going for the gold.

Ms M said...

Karin: I loved watching the Pavarotti; he'd thrust out his chest and sing so fervently, I wondered how he managed to stay on the branch.

Yes, Margaret, the locals wanted some of the Olympic glamor and attention. ;-)
