The Marvelous Spatuletail

I wanted to share with you this amazing hummingbird.  It's called the Marvelous Spatuletail.  He's about the size of your thumb, but has these long, brightly colored tail feathers that look like spatulas, and he lives in Peru. 


You can watch this
little video
of him.

 
Isn't he incredible?
 
We'll be showing you
some pictures
of Jess' shower next.
It was a long day, but
everything turned out very nice.

There are so many marvels in the world, and one thing I can say about technology as we know it these days is that it takes us to places and secret lives we'd otherwise miss. WHAT A MIRACULOUS creature!

I hope all is well dear one. I look forward to hear about the shower!

Oh hummingbirds... Yes they are so tiny and so amazing and so lovely.

I'm sure it was lovely. Maybe a bit of rest, is in order??? Before the next chapter? :-))))

OH, and when is the Final Chapter? I don't think you have said. then, maybe you don't want to say the date. That is entirely up to you.

Gentle hugs,
Tessa
