One day I sat outside on a bench in the carport. We use the carport like a veranda so jokingly I call it our "caranda". Anyway, a hummingbird inspected one windchime then another one. I stopped using the hummingbird feeders after I became unsteady and took them down. The bird seemed puzzled. It flew towards me and hovered about only two or three feet from me. I imagined it asking me what happened to the feeders. Then it flew away.
A praying mantis crashed into the siding behind the bench. At first I thought it was a hummingbird. It rebounded off the wall and landed on the bench next to me. It sat there looking up at me. When I put my hand out it followed it, turning its head and eyes. We sat like this for about half an hour. When I gently touched one of its legs, it flew away.
I had a wonderful relaxing time in the fresh air with my two visitors. Or maybe I was the visitor.
