We love watching the hummingbirds at our cabin and have had a number of close encounters over the years.  For example, David was able to get close enough to stroke the tail feathers of one bird and another landed on the sunburned bald spot on the top of Chet's head (no comment!).

A member of our extended family recently sent us a link to some pictures of a woman who was able to attract hummingbirds to sit on her hand as she held a feeder.  Seemed like a fun thing to do, so Sue decided to try it this morning.  Here is a photo and a quick video clip to show how well it worked out.
