BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Mme W still patiently sitting
Filmed around 4 this saturday afternoon. Although most of the day there was little breeze, it seemed to pick up as soon as I started shooting, so the nest and Mme are bouncing around quite a bit. At one point I zoom out to show the gumbo-limbo tree, then zoom back in again. The camera is about 10 feet from the nest.
