CO Afternoon Pick Me Up

Everybirdy needs a little help with the mid-day slump now and then.

When you have a jam-packed flower nectar agenda there’s no time for siesta.

This emerald hummingbird gem recently needed a little boost to get through the day.

Fresh air, flowers and a helping hand perked the flying jewel right up.

Amanda H. tells us, “This was on a rainy day in Estes Park, Colorado. I got up close to take a few pictures, and the little guy wasn’t fazed, so I held my hand out – he landed right on me! He must have been cold so we were best friends for just a few minutes.

I don’t mean to be a pane but it’s not easy being transparent.

THIS JUST IN: Dimbi’s Debut

Or, as the Parc Zoologique & Botanique de Mulhouse in France would say, “Voila!”, which literally means, jeepers creepers where’d ya get those peepers?
Dimbi, the blue-eyed black lemur, a critically endangered species (boo, hiss), was born on March 8 (yay!) and just recently made his first public appearance.
See for yourself!





Can’t…  look…  away…

And you can see even more about Dimbi over at Zooborns.

Worry Not!

We should very much like to take a moment now to discuss our views on fixing the world and all its problems. Right then, let’s get down to business, shall we? We’ll start with, oh my gosh look at that, a meezer in a sunbeam!
