Rain dance

We went back to Trinidad after 5 yrs and stayed at the Asa wright nature center, Arima, again. A lot of things have changed there in 5 yrs, all of it for the better at the center. One thing hadn’t changed much, the dance of pleasure of the white-necked jacobin, in the rain. I was able to relive and reinvigorate my memories of these hummingbirds dancing and being one with the rain. For them to find a treat in the rain in the oft-rained upon RAINforest, is the very definition of satisfaction for me. Although, their other traits are far less content, they are territorial about their feeders and fight a lot, the rain makes it all go away for them. They even get along.

For this weeks photo challenge, my hummingbirds from Trinidad, who are calling me back…

I am slightly crazy and totally sarcastic, with a nasty icing of cynicism. I exude pessimistic vibes every now and then. However, I do actively look for things that make me happy, like birds, damselflies and dragonflies, mountains and of course, books. Generous, inspiring people and people who enjoy what they do for a living while being good at it, make me feel like it is, after all, worthwhile being human. I hope to write about things in a way that makes them interesting.. and makes me more human-like. No matter how many times I rewrite this, still comes out corny. I give up
