I don't know how these clippings ended up in my pocket!

Hey Joe! Great photos! What a rare opportunity for you to have cashed in on!

So how many clippings of that plant did you..., I mean you got the name of that plant it was feeding from so that you could purchase some for your own yard, right?!

How cool would it be if it wasn't the only Bahama Woodstar to get blown off course/went crazy and migrated to Florida mon, and showed up with a few little ones in your backyard in the next year or two?!

Hey "King", I already have several Cape Honey Suckle "Tecomaria capensis" in my yard and I wasn't about to gather cuttings while a dozen or more observers were waiting to see her. I would have been pilloried on the spot. One of the plants in my yard is over 10' and does get a fair amount of attention, when I have hummers, and it blooms on and off throughout the year but not constantly. It's not a true honeysuckle but who cares, the hummers like it!
