"Attack of the Microbirds" The Hummingbird Movie

This is just too cool to keep to myself. Over the years I have had several hummingbirds come by and take a brief drink out of the hose while I am watering my garden. A couple of days ago I had one come up and take a drink, and then hung out bathing himself for over 2 minutes and just inches from my hand. He would have stayed longer, but when he flew up close to the nozzles, and alternated dipping his feet in for a good wash.... my laugh startled him for a few seconds. Now he has come back and done the bathing routine for 3 days in a row, and up to 5 times a day. Today, I went outside and there were 3 of them hanging out waiting for me, and I actually had 2 of them bathing in the hose at once. Anyway, I have been able to catch quite a few episodes on digital video, and have one of them here for your viewing pleasure.
