“All living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. This madness can be saving; it is part and parcel of the ability to adapt. Without it, no species would survive.” ― Yann Martel, Life of Pi
During my recent stay on Saturna Island B.C I discovered that the hummingbird ( shown in main photo) and seahorse move somewhat alike,; chickadees like to sip the water in the bird bath before they take a cooling plunge; and, the wasp is their natural enemy. Each had their own feeder. The temperature during my stint there was high enough to melt any thermometer but both species frequented the bird bath for evening splashes and sips of cooling water. They both used a buddy system to warn them of danger. While one bathed the other kept watch.
