I would love to see one up close, they're beautiful. Do you by chance know of a hummingbird that is solid black? I ask because one day, not too long ago, one came up to me...within about 8-inches from my face, stared me down then flew away. I was so excited. lol I haven't been able to figure out what kind it was, though. Next year I plan on getting a hummingbird feeder so I can see them all the time.
