    I have a funny story about hummingbirds! My great grandpa was camping with my great grandma once, an they had hung a humming bird feeder on the camper. This humming bird kept flying at Pops face and he swatted at it, an it spit a stream of sugar water from the feeder right in his face. I laughed so hard when I first heard the story! Remembering this now is kind of sad tho. Pop is alive, but Maudy (great grandma) died 6 months ago. Anyways, great video!

    @Zefrank1 When the unfortunate inevitable passing of Sir David Frederick Attenborough occurs, I hope you pick up right where he left off, your voice is fantastic to listen to while watching nature... and dare I say it, much better than when Will Smith narrated that one Netflix one. 😅
