Amazing Strength And Beauty Of The Hummingbirds...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog...

We all just love hummingbirds!
They come in many different colors and yet they are all the same size.

I just realized that you can hear them easier than seeing them!
They zip around like they are on a mission.

When we are up in the mountains, they are so brightly decked out in so many colors.

Yet some are just plain brown and with very little color!

I guess they're one creature that has ADD and we think they're special!

Moving too fast can  make us miss something we are right in the midst of.

Slow and Steady is my action mostly!
But for a little Hummingbird we think it is perfect.

So many of us even really enjoy setting out our Hummingbird feeders,
They eat pure sugar and it must produce the energy and endurance they need!

What is it that we need to fuel our hearts and minds?

We all know pure sugar would do us harm,
Yet, everything we eat does turn into glucose,
We need sustainable energy throughout our days!

We need things with substance!

We all know what cotton candy smells like and looks like;
Spun sugar, delicate and smells sweet!
But if you had a diet of just cotton candy we would plummet and drop!

I was wondering, what is the Hummingbird a bit like each of us?
We are all not going to be arrayed in bright colors;
We all do not move quickly;
We all look for a place to be fed and nourished;
We all want to be heard:

We are not made of spun sugar
But we do want to be loved and appreciated!




BASIC FACTS ABOUT HUMMINGBIRDS

Hummingbirds are small, colorful birds with iridescent feathers.
Their name comes from the fact that they flap their wings so fast (about 80 times per second) that they make a humming noise.


Hummingbirds can fly right, left, up, down, backwards, and even upside down. They are also able to hover by flapping their wings in a figure-8 pattern. They have a specialized long and tapered bill that is used to obtain nectar from the center of long, tubular flowers. The hummingbird’s feet are used for perching only, and are not used for hopping or walking.
