Humming Bird

Hummingbirds feed on the nectar of plants and are important pollinators, especially of deep-throated, tubular flowers.

They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12-90 times per second
(depending on the species). They can also fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so.

I have this flower plant in front of my house. It has flowers that look like tiny birds.

Many plants pollinated by hummingbirds produce flowers in shades of red, orange, and bright pink, though the birds will take nectar from flowers of many colors.

Once I saw a humming bird flying near the flowers. It was so small.

Hope to see it again.

I miss it.

  3. Hummingbirds are so special. They are the only bird that can fly backward right? It has been a long, long time since I last spot any hummingbird. :)

    Have you watched Benjamin Button? Hummingbird played a major role in it. :)

  9. Thanks for coming to my blog and leaving a message, that was very nice. I don’t know how you found my blog but I am pleased to see yours as you have some interesting posts and recipes. I went to Malaysia one day years ago, from Singapore and like it a lot. Unfortunately I did not see much but maybe I’ll be able to go again some day.

  19. I have never seen a hummingbird before. I have seen amazing photos of these birds. They move very fast and they are difficult subjects to photograph.
