Hummingbirds Fly Zone in Louisiana
The lady in these pictures is Abigail Alfano, and she lives in Pine, Louisiana (North of New Orleans). What is interesting is that she lives in a Hummingbird fly zone.

It is in the month of September that these Hummingbirds are on the move, and they need sugar to give them the energy to complete the migration. Normally, they would feed from the nectar of plants, but clearly they prefer the more concentrated sugar solution that Abigail provides for them.

It is the wings that give the 'Humming bird' its name. As hummingbirds go, this is quite a large species, nevertheless, even these can eat their own body weight in nectar in a day.
The Story Behind the Hummingbirds Story
The story-behind-the-story is that someone in Kentucky falsely passed the photographs off as their own. When the impostor won first prize, Abigail and her husband, who really took the photos, published the full story; it is her hands in the picture and not the impostor's. These photographs were take in 2006, Will and Guy hope that Abigail has had just as much pleasure from the Hummingbird fly zone in 2007.
