Maisie and John were playing tennis in Glendale. That’s when John saw it: a hummingbird hovering over the court, about eight feet above the net.

“Look!” said John. “There’s a hummingbird over the net!” He was excited because he liked hummingbirds a lot. They were one of his favorite kinds of animals!

“Oh my god!” said Maisie. Then she said: “Hit it.”

But John wasn’t listening. The ball had just bounced onto his side of the court, and he was too busy automatically¬†aiming his return shot right at the hummingbird.

It was the glory of nature!
