COMING IN FOR A LANDING!
I think the hummer was saying to him/herself, "Whoa, whoa, whoa - slow down, there's danger ahead!"
This shot was not the greatest quality, but it made me smile. I laughed at the hummer's position coming in for a landing.
I think perhaps the hummingbird has seen the wasp on the other side of the feeder at the last minute & is trying hard to "put on the brakes" before encountering that scary little flying stinger on the other side of the feeder.
The end of the story is that the hummingbird scared the wasp away and he/she got her fill at the feeder. When the hummer left, the wasp came right back immediately & parked itself on the feeder again.
I hope this gives all the SmugMuggers a smile today. Thank you all for you comments on my shot of Chika in Bill's 1966 Fairlane. It sure was fun meeting she & Hiro & Papamugger.
Have a wonderful evening!
