Hummingbird, the tiniest of all birds, is the only creature that can stop dead while traveling at full speed. It can hover, or go forward, backward, up or down. It lives on small bugs and nectar and searches for the sweetness of life. Its long tongue lets it bypass the often tough and bitter outer layer to find the hidden treasures underneath. Hummingbird is loved by the flowers and plants, for as it sucks the nectar from the flower, the plant reproduces and more of its kind are created. In many traditions, Hummingbird feathers have been prized for their almost magical qualities. It is said Hummingbird brings love as no other medicine can, and its presence brings joy to the observer.
