The babies are here! The babies are here!
The hummingbird babies, that is.
Look how tiny they are . . .
This isn't a very good picture but I wanted you to see the scale. Those two babies together are about the size of my thumb. My ginormous, gigantor thumb.
I don't mean to hurt their feelings or anything but they aren't very cute. In fact, I wouldn't hesitate to use the description "butt ugly" but I can't say it in front of their mom. She's probably hormonal and postpartum right now and I don't want to give her any reason to peck me to death in defense of her kids.
This is really something being able to see these guys up close. I'll try to get more pics before we head to Maui on Wednesday but I'm not making any promises. I mean, I'm busy tanning and I need a pedicure and who knows what all might come up before we go.
This high maintenance stuff is about to kill me . . .
