Valiant little puffballs...

Here we have a return to a Siberian winter... sub-zero temperatures, blowing snowdrifts and all the rest.

But at least the sun came out shining the next day! And that makes it all much nicer.

The valiant little hummingbirds somehow manage to survive the snow and sub-zero temps. They puff up into little feathery round balls and go into a state of torpor overnight.

I have to bring their feeders inside or soon they'll be solid ice. I made this movie a few years ago. It's fun doing nature movies. I managed a better one a while back, but haven't turned it into an iMovie yet.
