The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. 
~ Henry Ward Beecher 

Hummingbirds is one of my favorite birds. I watched a whole PBS Nature show on it, pretty awesome, check it out http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/hummingbirds-magic-in-the-air/video-full-episode/5475/. This one is called sword billed haha, its longer than its body! The blossom it eats from has nectar tucked away in the back. So they’re the only species that can attain it. But they cant eat just nectar, they need protein too, as in insects. AERIAL PREDATION FTW! lol All hummingbirds can flap wings super fast and they’re heart still pump without over working. You learn to appreciate nature when you study it. The beautiful footage is this production helps us appreciate how amazing they are designed – far superior to any man-made design. Such a wonderfully testimony to THE creator! Yay for pollinators!
