Hummingbird lands on my cap.

This little guy feeds at the hummingbird feeder next to where I sit for breakfast so I thought I would see if he really trusted me. He Did.

Very nice. I particularly liked how the hummer checked out one of the holes in the cap before turning its attention to the flower. There no truth to the "hitching rides with Canada Geese" story, BTW--just another "urban myth".

Urban Myth

I had always heard that and found it hard to believe but did for a long time.
