This week, I saw the most interesting thing: the Malachite Sunbird bathing itself not in the birdbath, but the dew-drenched leaves! It must do so, I think, for its long tail feathers. Wonderful! (I have photographed the Malachite Sunbird on many occasions, for example here.)

I have a near-final draft of “To a Swallow”! I can scarce believe it; it seemed to me this day would never come!
