“Naughty” Little Hummingbird

When the rain clouds were in the distance, I saw a couple of hummingbirds flying back and forth into our trees and back into the neighbor’s trumpet vine. I got my camera to capture some photos of the birds by the trumpets in the back alley. And here sits this little hummer, and sticks its tongue out at me. What a naughty little hummingbird!!! 😉

“Baaah! Yeah, take this for photographing me!” 😉

I know, hummingbirds stick their tongues out for a different reason. And I was actually surprised and happy to see, I captured a photo with its tongue out. There is always a first time.

The Life Cycle of A Raindrop

The Adventures Of Randy The Raindrop

Randy the raindrop lived in a cloud.
The heat from the sun made him big, strong, and proud!
He got bigger and bigger until one day – Oh My!
He fell through the floor of his house in the sky!

Randy was scared, then he saw more raindrops falling.
“Hey Randy, isn’t this fun?” they were calling.
Then onto a leaf with a splash Randy fell,
And what happened next is a strange thing to tell.

Randy was made up of water, you know,
a part of him went to help the tree grow.
The rest of him went into a puddle so round,
then the sun came out and shone on the ground.

The sun warmed Randy and he started to change.
He became water vapor – My isn’t that strange?
Little drops of water, too tiny to see,
Floated into the sky – yes that was Randy!

Randy’s home once again was a cloud in the sky.
He was a raindrop once more, but then by and by …
The sun made him bigger and bigger and then …
He fell through the floor of his house once again!
