This is about some of the most amazing creatures of the Americas – and in nature: hummingbirds – near Petersburg in West Virgina on Memorial Day 2012.
No piece of art can be more delicate and perfect than a hummingbird. A few facts: hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards, they put spider’s silk in their tiny nests and weigh 2-6 grams!
Hummingbirds take my breath away and although their plumage sparkles in glittering colors, I like these silhouette ones, because they are “my” hummingbirds. I never thought I would be able to take a picture of one, but I was. It was possible. Like happiness.
Enjoy the summer!
