A recommend - hummingbird video and book

Many nature lovers may already know about this book and video but I have only discovered it within the last month. I was so enamored with the video that I bought the book immediately. The photos inside are exquisite. As for the video I found it totally enchanting from beginning to end.

I found this short excerpt from the video at YouTube. Please click on it to enlarge the screen so that you won't get the 'cut-off' version.

Oh wow! This is absolutely remarkable. It's really beautifully done. I think it's amazing that people can actually hold one of those tiny birds.

How glorious! I can't believe how tiny the nest is and that it's built on a clothes line. Heart-warming stuff, Denise - thank you:-)

They are soooo tiny. I like how the babies filled the nest when they grew.
