For all you Twin Peaks fans out there, when Pete says “There’s a fish in the percolator,” I always crack up. The title is meant to be read in the same voice. 😉
So, yesterday I was glazing and heard this buzzing sound very loud right over my head. I figure the fluorescent bulb is about to blow or I’ve got a massive bee-wasp-dragonfly type creature in my midst. Neither. To my surprise, there’s a hummingbird hitting the fluorescent light on the ceiling.
I run to get my camera and Robert. Take pictures. Rob flicks off the light and off the little bird goes. I suppose he thought the light was the sun? Anyone who knows anything about hummers, please feel free to educate me on this. I also assume he was on his way to Mexico. Don’t they go there for the winter?
At any rate, I have to admit, it was a lovely experience. I was very glad a hummer decided to visit me on 09-09-09. I consider it a sign of good fortune. Maybe I’ll put his image on a pot!
