Dear Gary:
This summer, one of our hummingbirds favored us with his appearance at 8:30 a.m. near the mini waterfall outside our kitchen window. He then sips from the top stream and proceeds to take a shower in it!  This has been the highlight of our mornings.  My husband, Taka, took these pictures.  Hope you can use them.

Dear Myrna:
Where else would a mini bird like a hummingbird take a shower … but in a mini waterfall? beautiful! /Gary
