Hummingbirds Battle in the Air


A Mayan legend says the hummingbird is actually the sun in disguise, and he is trying to court a beautiful woman, who is the moon.

Ένας θρύλος των Μάγια λέει ότι το κολιμπρί είναι στην πραγματικότητα ο ήλιος μεταμφιεσμένος, και προσπαθεί να φλερτάρει μια όμορφη γυναίκα, που είναι το φεγγάρι.

Hummingbirds sometimes use their unmatched flying skills for something other than feeding on flowers–for fighting over them. Flowers in full bloom are a call to arms. It’s fight and flight – a display of skill and fiery temper.

    • Good morning !!!!!!!

      When the morning dawns, and the blest sun again
      Lifts his red glories from the eastern main,
      Then thro’ our woodbines, wet with glittering dews,
      The flower-fed humming-bird his round pursues;
      Sips, with inserted tube, the honey’d blooms,
      And chirps his gratitude as round he roams;
      While richest roses, tho’ in crimson drest,
      Shrink from the splendor of his gorgeous breast.
      What heavenly tints in mingling radiance fly,
      Each rapid movement gives a different dye;
      Like scales of burnish’d gold they dazzling show,
      Now sink to shade — now like a furnace glow!
