Check out this hummingbird, spotted almost directly overhead in the Lilac Garden at Denver Botanic Gardens. Normally, I'm more interested in the horticultural and botanic than I am in the animals I might happen to see in Denver. But this bird was twittering away, paused to sit for just a moment on the branch, then leapt from its perch into the air and swooped and dived several times before dashing across the Gardens. I was lucky to enough to share the experience with both adults and children. (Doesn't it seem like the Gardens is be a great place for children and families in the summer? Look here or read Lisa's blog.) It was neat enough to see a hummingbird, to watch it perching with an audience as entranced as we were was divine!
