 At the Japanese Friendship Garden, the hummingbirds were really enjoying the cherry blossoms (my little camera-that-could got these shots zoomed in from way far away).

Perhaps the bird above is the mom to these below...

OMG OMG OMG! How cute are they? Click on a picture to zoom in even further.

Of course, this nest is minuscule (you can see it in comparison with the magnolia leaves), as are the barely hatched babes inside. The nest was built in a magnolia tree RIGHT on the trail, seemingly in harm's way, in other words. I guess the birds know something we don't...

(I held my camera over the nest and hoped for the best, and I think these pix are pretty cool--I didn't want to disturb the nest or the babies...)
