Killer Hummingbirds

Really. I'm serious. Remember, you read it here first.

They are beautiful and jewel-like, but could be deadly. And remember their attraction to red...

We have very bold, aggressive hummers here, and the other day when I was walking, one buzzed me and I saw his long pointy beak and thought "you know, someone could make a horror movie about swarms of rogue, vampire hummingbirds..." And imagined news reports of people being found, drained of blood, with a single tiny hole in their neck.

Don't you think this one has quite a fierce expression?

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
