A Sleeping Hummingbird

Hummingbirds are fascinating little creatures. They never seem to be able to sit still for even a second or two. Always buzzing around in search of food I suppose. Well, every once in a while I am able to catch one taking a cat nap of sorts. They don’t sleep or rest for very long but if you watch them closely for a period of time when they have a perch nearby you can witness something very few people ever get to see, a sleeping hummingbird. We are all accustomed to seeing them buzz about from flowers to feeders, rarely even landing on anything to rest. It is nice to see even a hummingbird can take a few moments out of their busy day to take a cat nap or two.
