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!
