Wildlife encounter

I left the front door open this morning when I went outside to get one more picture of the Corps de Ballet tulips in bloom, and when I came inside there was a hummingbird in the dining room! It must have been enjoying the tulips and darted inside when I disturbed it. The poor thing was buzzing and clicking angrily as it flung itself against the window. I loved hearing its sounds and seeing it up close, but decided to do the right thing.

I didn't stop to take its picture, just took the screen off the window and shepherded it outside.

This is someone else's amazing picture of a female ruby-throat.
