Hummingbird that is. LOL It's not the greatest, I wish I would have zoomed a little more but didn't wanna go into the digital zoom and ruin the picture, so I just stuck to the optical zoom.

When I was in Washington doing a project, I stayed at a RV park about 45 miles out of Portland. I had a hummingbird feeder and so did a friend that was staying there. It was really heavily wooded but we had a trail from my RV to his through the thick timber.

While setting in lawn chairs drinking a beer one evening, we noticed that the birds would feed at my feeder until there were too many and then a couple would take off and fly up the trail to his feeder. Pretty soon, the others would follow until there were too many at that feeder and then they'd reverse the process. We could watch them for hours.

One night in the early evening, just getting dark, my friend set out from his rv coming to my rv. He had called and we talked on the phone so I knew he was coming over. I walked outside and about 2 minutes later, I heard him yell. I took off up the trail and there he lay, holding his head. He was headed for my rv, when a hummingbird was headed from my rv to his. Pegged him straight in the forehead at probably 20 mph. Poor little humming bird died. Friend got taken to the local hospital to remove the broke off beak that was in his forhead. You wouldn't think that little humming bird could cause such damage, but my friend had a pop-knot on his forhead that literally looked like half an egg sticking right out from the middle of his forehead.

Unfortunately, I was more concerned with getting Rick to a doctor then I was with running back and grabbing my camera. haha
