Im such a moron.

Sq Root (Eye Height above surface / 0.5736)

That is how far you can see on a clear day. Say you are 6ft tall, eye level is at 5 1/2 ft, but you are standing 1,000 feet above sea level.

sq root (1,005.5 / 0.5736) = 41.9 miles.

Meaning you can see 41.9 miles before the curve of Earth prevents you from seeing further.

Hummingbird told me this. Thought I'd share.

well I appreciate all nature, all kinds of domesticated flowers and wild nature as well. I have to say I love hummingbirds and all birds and all nature for that matter but especially birds! The hummies or humsters as I call them come to one of 3 feeders and flowers as well. The males fight with each other and yet they are always gong to the feeders except as of late and I am dismayed but still see them. I am amused by their U or horse-shoe dance as I call it, where they wizz about in a u shape pattern to impress or deter. they are great in my opinion. we are all both kind and humnle and aggressive/out for our own interests and they are no different. Go hummies!

Made me chuckle out loud, by the way. Thanks bud.

Well Im not sure of the elevation, but I am at the highest point of land locally, and I am looking out over lowland and foothills. Neither am I looking 100 miles out in a straight line, nor do the ridgelines and ranges stretch out in a straight line ahead of me. I am seeing them side to and they follow a sweeping curve. I am on the concave side of that curve.

Im not the least bit surprised a hummingbird would try to discredit me so. They surely have it out for me. Just yesterday one distracted me so much that I had to relight my joint over and over again.

They thwart my every attempt at photograghing them. I had to settle for this hummingbird moth.

I saw a hummingbird twelve stories above street level...or at least something that looked like one. Beautiful. The thing is, I was in Southeast Asia, and there aren't supposed to be any hummingbirds there...

An outrageous travesty to have to gaze upon such things in this day and age. I feel for you all and the gross amount of natural splendour that bombards your weary eye sockets..

I suppose I'll have to add a little something of my own..
