Joyas Voladoras is Spanish for “Flying Jewels,” the name early Spanish explorers gave to hummingbirds, which are only found in North and South America. Click photos for more detail.
Click image below if hummingbird is not animated.
My next h-bird goal is to photograph one that is sipping from a flower, not a feeder!
The Humming Bird by Emily Dickinson
A route of evanescence
With a revolving wheel;
A resonance of emerald,
A rush of cochineal;
And every blossom on the bush
Adjusts its tumbled head,~
The mail from Tunis, probably,
An easy morning’s ride.
