Baby hummingbird.

It took forever to find because I was looking for something much more subtle than that, like a patch of lichen. Tinier than that too. This looks like a trash bag blown in to the briar. I'm also surprised what bramble orange trees are. Oh, they're nice plump and orange and alluring promising delicious citrus moisture, hanging pendently like that, but Jeeze, what a mess.

Are you just into the animated GIFs, Chip?

(Not saying that would be a bad thing.)

Do you ever work with animation programs, like Flash or Maya?

I'm learning an animation program called Anime Studio Pro.

It's a tough hack for me, but I'll get there.

If you are interested in buying Anime Pro, buy it at Amazon for 1/3 the price.

Found it.

My wife saw photos of people hand feeding chickadees so she set out to breast feed baby hummingbirds.

That was a fail, but still, you have to admire her pluck.

I like GIMP too. That's free. It does tons of stuff.

Those oranges look good.

My first job would be clean up the trees.

Yesterday I read orange blossoms are a symbol of fecundity because flowers appear on the tree along with fruit.

He said the "it sure was mad at me" presumably the parent bird buzzing him for coming too near. But out of five photos I didn't see any adult bird.

Really Eric, that sounds like a truthful story. Did I tell you about my wife who eats like a bird? Yeah. Half her weight in worms and grubs and ticks a day. And I'm all, "You know what you cowbird? My next wife is going to eat like a seed-eating bird."

Lol! I do, along with her alacrity.
