Loved this and the thought of bringing people into the hummingbird’s life.

This surely is the way to reconnect people to nature and will encourage others to protect species be it winged, fin, or four legged.

Ing, zing, ma zing, a ma zing—put ’em all together and they spell amazing—what an amazing film, one for which I will echo the producer’s words:

Oh, my gosh!

I will never again try to down a hummingbird with a sling while the hummingbird is moving at warp speed at a high altitude, nor will I attempt the feat regardless of its speed and altitude. My sling is one identical to that used by David in his first—and final—meeting with Goliath. Of course I’ve never downed a hummingbird with my sling, but because of this film I won’t even try again.

And I also echo Mary Ellen’s comments, particularly about bringing people into the hummingbird’s life. In my case, the film brought the hummingbirds into my life. For that I am grateful, and for the first time in my life I will consider donating to PBS—note my use of the word consider—I am neither in sync nor in sympathy with some of the talking heads on PBS and their treatment of particular subjects.

Thanks for posting the film—I loved it.
