This video is truly magical especially when watching the hummingbird flit from one of his hands to the other, light as a feather with a natural poetic grace. It is almost as if the hummingbird shows love and adoration on it’s face when he is with the man. Just as parents love to capture video of their child’s first steps, in this video we get to see the hummingbird’s first flight, and first visit outside.
According to the description in the video he states:
“when she thought she was ready to leave (and she was) she flew off to her favorite patch of the back yard, and her instincts instantly kicked in, and now she’s just like all the other hummingbirds. for those that are concerned that she has imprinted on humans and wouldn’t survive in the wild, don’t worry, she is thriving. she has even successfully migrated and returned back to my yard. and for those who think i didn’t know what i was doing, i did NOT feed her plain sugar water. i went outside 3 times a day and caught flies from my compost bin in big bags, crushed them, and mixed them in as well. I also helped her learn to catch flies while flying (not in the video because you obviously wouldn’t be able to see the flies). in the end, i don’t think it could have worked out any better”
Additionally, a wonderful choice of music, which is “Better Together” by Jack Johnson.
Truly a magnificent video. On an “Awesome Scale” of 1 to 10, I give this one a 10.
