The light shimmers off the ruby-throated hummingbird’s feathers as it energetically hovers over the lantana. The vibration of these fairy-like birds prevents us from seeing their true beauty, rendering them blurs of energy as they zoom past from one flower to the next. Their sparkling plumage is always an inspiration as it reflects not only the spirit of the hummer himself but also of the natural world around him.
