Hummingbird

Hummingbird Clem found outside, originally uploaded by jenpahlka.

Clem found this is the bush outside Susan & Mathis’s house. Dead. Lots of death this week. If you look closely you can see the tiny sharp tongue that protrudes from the tip of its beak. We want to save it and hope it doesn’t start to stink. I wonder if it has so little body mass that it won’t really rot. If it starts to smell, we’ve decided we’ll bury it the backyard.
