Hummingbird and Agapanthus (This is an old photo)

My grandfather told me that once one came and took a drink off of his garden hose. After he told me that story I hoped that one day one would do the same for me. Today when I was watering the garden I noticed a cute little hummingbird flying back and forth from one tree to another. It looked like it was curious about the water so I sprayed it far enough away from where I was standing to see if it would come take a drink...and it did!!!!!!!!! First it took a little shower. Then it went to a near by branch to groom itself for a bit. It then returned to my spray of water to catch a few drops with it's tongue in mid air, before it zoomed off :) How cool is that?!? Jeff went to get the camera, in case it came back for some more...but no luck! That's the reason for the old picture :)

It may be an old picture but its still a very beautiful one. I would have been jumping up and down with excitement to see your humming bird.
