Snorgle A Hummingbird?

pot belleh 1“I’m submitting this photo I took of a Hummingbird exhibiting Rule #38,” comments Cuteporter -Lise C. [*Note: "If you have a curved, plump belleh, it's cute." -Ed.] “Alas, I wasn’t allowed close enough to Snorgle it. H-birds have pretty good BEF*, too! We love C.O.!”

[*BEF = Beady Eye Factor. And trying to Snorgle a Supersonic Hummingbird, while truly admirable, seems hopeless. If you do, photos please. -Ed.]

More Hummingbirds, If You Please!

From The C.O. Mailbag:

“Dear C.O., I love Cute Overload, but I have noticed that you don’t post enough hummingbirds. Hummingbirds conform to many Rules Of Cuteness, namely: #14: If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it’s cute. But they also have peeping tongues and disapproving looks! And they nest in the funniest places. I am sending you some photos from this slideshow at the Cornell Labs of Ornithology. These aren’t mine, so I can’t give permission, but here is a link to the slideshow.” -Anna S.

“Hiked up Stonewall Peak (east of San Diego) this past Sunday and stopped to take a photo of some nice flowers.”

“I was busy composing a closeup shot of the flowers when I heard a rumbling that got louder and louder to the point where it freaked me out a bit.”

Q1XjsNo - Imgur
“I pulled the camera away, looked over and realized a hummingbird was hovering about three feet to the right of my head (the rumbling was the bird’s wings flapping to hover.)”

“I (slowly) backed up and saw there was a family of 4 of them in the area and they started feeding on the flowers I had been taking photos of, so I backed up some more to give them some room and snapped some photos (400mm lens, so it looks closer than it was.)”

BxDFaMN - Imgur
“They stuck around for about 15 minutes feeding on the flowers, which surprised me because I’ve never seen a hummingbird that didn’t dart off straight away around a random human.”

V9qroIx - Imgur
“They were clearly keeping a bit of an eye on me but didn’t seem too bothered by my presence.”
