      • I would have loved that!

        There is a place in Florida that Tom and I visited, where there was an aviary filled with hummingbirds that you could walk around in–it was a very large area. The birds would be flitting around and circling you and landing in bushes while you walked around in there among them. You could really get some closeup looks at them–they are the most charming of birds. πŸ™‚

      • they are so tiny. i wish i could visit that aviary some day. πŸ™‚
        they are so shy of human beings in India. We rarely got their full glimpse.

      • I would love to show you that aviary–you would absolutely love it. It’s actually called Butterfly World. There’s a huge enclosed space there where they have many species of butterflies and you can walk among them as well–they are flitting all around, resting in trees, feeding on nectar and sometimes resting on you. Very fun place to visit–butterflies and hummingbirds. πŸ™‚

        this picture was accident (the one in haiku)
        i did not painted all of it, a part of it happened by accident that made it even more beautiful.
