#8 is great especially in combination with #9 smile 
Great sequal, hummingbirds are my favorites and I envy your shots and admire them, the hummingbird is a stunning animal that has it all, speed, endurance, elegance and those marvelous colors. Also they could migrate to Europe once in a while.

Thanks Sabine  - they are amazing animals. They have flown across the Gulf of Mexicao without stopping, but it might be a bit far across the Atlantic.

The route via Africa is doable, many birds travel via Africa! Brazil, Sierra Leone, and you’re almost there smile

You must have names for your feathered friends now. Surprising us with Harley is a nice touch. ūüėä

Yeah, but they're too obvious - Speedy, Twitchy and Flighty. And Harley is always there, supervising.

Nice collection, but the dog was a surprise. Hidden message there? The shots reminded me of an essay. As a former bio teacher, I'm guessing you are familiar with "Joyas Voladoras" but here is a link anyway: https://theamericanscholar.org/joyas-volardores/#.V7yq-FsrK9I

Thanks, and for the reminder as well - it's been a long time. My students used to love to hear the stories of the extremes of the living world. The dog? He's just Harley, hanging around, as always, and the birds ignore him - he's less than 5 feet away, I'm about 7 feet. His goal in life is to get as much sun as possible until he can't breathe and then flop in the shade. What a life!
