Poor Vision, Great Eyes
For having such poor vision all my life, I've got some pretty good eyes! As so often happens, I spot a bird or two perched atop the dead elm at the edge of our property. Usually I have to zoom in and take a picture to upload on the computer before I know what it is. Today, I spotted a tiny bird on the uppermost branch. I figured I'd be learning a new bird, once I saw it up close--it never occurred to me that it would be a hummingbird. I'm shocked that I even noticed it at that distance.
