Life Lessons from Hummingbirds

After meeting a good friend for lunch, one who is a talented motivational speaker and who is famous for her "Life Lessons from" series, I thought it might be fun to try a Life Lessons of my own, from the first bird photo I found. So here's a try:

Life Lessons From Hummingbirds

1) Don't let anything bigger than you push you around. If you dive bomb one a few times, you will discover he's a weenie and will run away.

2) It's okay to eat like crazy. After all, in about another month you've got to fly over the Gulf of Mexico in one or two nights.

3) Wear a little flashy color. Crazy people will put out food for you.

4) Kids, Schmids. Once they're out of the nest, they're no longer your problem. Chase them away from any feeder or flower you want to bogart. It's cool.

5) And lastly, attitude is everything. You're small, cute, and have a resting pulse of 250. They'll do anything if you show up now and then, or not. Whatever.
