How big do they get? Hummers are small for birds, but would be large for an insect.
In any case, it's a beautiful creature.
This is what I saw at dusk/dark maybe three weeks ago........

A strange creature, but beautiful in a way.

Just goes to show--evolution at work, here.

If there is a viable niche that live can fit within? Creatures will evolve some way to exploit that niche. Usually more than one...

Sure. Given a niche...
Think extremophiles.
Or deep-sea vent shrimp.

I do. One child at a time.

So far, no power in the 'Verse can stop me.

I teach English to orphaned Chinese children so that they can impress prospective parents looking to adopt. It works. I'm very good at it.

Good for you!

Now... if we could only teach Chinese to the Americans-- so they can understand the language of the people who will eventually own all their land...

15 years ago I would have laughed at this statement.
Goes to show you how rapidly this country has deteriated. We borrow money only to give it away.....To everyone! What are we investing in?....Where's the 'growth'
With growth comes prosperity.....one answer to the bleeding.

Would you want to live in China? They are destroying their country.
The pollution is at an alarming rate.They do not follow ANY EPA guidelines.They're breaking all the rules and prospering from it. They don't care about their people while we on the other hand...we care too much.....I've seen the films.

Help me out here........Name just 'one' product in the last 50 years that's 'mass' produced in China......that's better in quality than the U.S.A.

It's all imported garbage Bob!

If nothing is done China will turn this country into a wasteland like their own.

You can have it!

And to think of all the work, blood, and guts our forefathers went through.

Chinese products are a mixed bag: some of it is acceptable, others is not.

The problem is? You can never tell which is which-- well, some of it is all bad, and that is pretty easy to tell (price, is one signal).

But the stuff that is good? Is not **consistently** good-- quite often, you'll get a bad batch mixed in with the acceptable stuff.

This is because of rampant corruption in the quality control aspect--sometimes, their quality control is functioning as it should, and the products are acceptable. But other times?(seemingly at random) the quality control is hijacked by corruption at all levels-- then, the products become hit-or-miss.

I have had to deal with chinese products even though I'd prefer not to-- but sometimes, the replacement parts **only** come from china-- so you learn to **test** each and every one.

... but the Chinese government does own much of the US debt, which was the source of my previous comment.

Hi Mac;

I have a whole flock of hummingbirds that hangs around my place. Some of their nest they build are a bit bigger than a good size nut shell. I put out feeders for them and than of course got the wild flowers down in the field too which they love to hit. Very territorial too especially around the feeders. Mine hang around in a ole pine tree too not so much in the other trees just this ole pine one. Some of the babies are about the size of a very small moth. Do you know they have the ablity to hibernate too on cold nights and some will go to where the climate is warmer for the winter months. Just wanted to share is all.

OK here's a weaponry question for you;
why were they called "the Three Musketeers"...
when none of them carried a musket?
They all had swords, or perhaps they were sabres.
I guess "the three swordsmen" doesn't roll off the tongue as well-LoL!

Good one! Of course, in those days, a musket was a one-shot deal-- it took too long to load to be worth more than a single shot.

And many times? Even then, the shot may not work-- unreliable as they were.

Yah. I had feeders in PA, too - loved the little buzzers.
Had to take the feeders down in about September - otherwise they'd hang around too long, and starve on their way to South America.
