El Baile del colibrí/Hummingbird Dance

     First I heard a low buzzing hum, then chirping that sounded like: "Ko-lee-BREE, Ko-lee-BREE!" I slowly and quietly took out my camera. Suddenly, they were gone!
     They darted into the apple tree where they blended in with the leaves and branches. Some perched on the phone line, just waiting. I aimed my camera at them. Then they darted away again. They were camera shy.
     They finally gave me a break, as they enjoyed the drying bee balm flowers. It looked like they were doing "el Baile del Colibrí, the Hummingbird Dance."
