While we were in Ohio browsing through my grandpa's garden, we saw this little creature buzzing about. He was an unusual fellow, kind of like a hummingbird, maybe similar to a butterfly and as friendly as could be. We had never seen anything like it. He was busy drawing the nectar out of each tiny flower, as if he didn't notice anyone watching.

Tommy and I were almost eyeball to eyeball with this flying friend and he didn't seem to mind a bit. Tommy was brave and reached over to touch his wing. The little guy acted like nothing even happened...hmmmm, what's in that nectar? It must be some pretty good stuff. Tommy gently touched his rapid flapping wings a few more times. I was amazed, the insect never seemed to mind. It was a very cool thing to watch!
