Another hummingbird sighting

While sitting on a friend's third floor condo patio (near Steveston's Britannia Shipyard), we spotted a hummingbird zooming in for a feeder hanging under the eaves.

Apparently Rocket, as it has been named, regularly swoops down from nearby trees and is none too shy when it comes to feeding time. It was a breathtaking moment and we all felt blessed to have witnessed its wildly beating wings and dab of vivid red on its throat.

Rocket circled the feeder and sampled the nectar from different trumpets before blasting off towards the water. Isn't it amazing how little it takes to lift our spirits?
