Front cover done and it's huge!!!
What do you think guys?

The Rufous-tailed Hummingbird is arguably the most common species in Costa Rica. And in comparison to other species it's a little on the uniform side, but there is hidden beauty in all hummingbirds. Look at the feathers around the eye they have a wave of color, all shaped by keratin. The reflections the shape give creat a wave of coloration in a small feather the size of a grain of rice, the small details can be amazing. @audubonsociety

I'm on safari in Arizona, sitting next to a guy wearing a fanny pack, knee pads and all the photography gear. Is that me in the future 🤷🏽‍♂️? #🤓

Here's a hummingbird-based gluttony demon! Everybody always depicts gluttony or gluttony demons as big fat guys, but what's more slothful than eating up to 3 times your body weight in nectar or blood or whatever (esp. if it's all just spilling out all over your fancy robes).

HUMMING BIRD FUN FACTS

There are more than 325 hummingbird species in the world. Only eight species regularly breed in the United States, though up to two dozen species may visit the country or be reported as regular vagrants. The rest of the hummingbirds are primarily tropical species and do not regularly migrate.
A hummingbird’s brilliant throat color is not caused by feather pigmentation, but rather by iridescence in the arrangement of the feathers. Light level, moisture, angle of viewing and other factors all influence just how bright and colorful the throat may appear.
Hummingbirds cannot walk or hop, though their feet can be used to scoot sideways while they are perched. These birds have evolved smaller feet to be lighter for more efficient flying. They will use their feet for itching, however!
The calliope hummingbird is the smallest bird species in North America and measures just 3 inches long. The bee hummingbird is the smallest species and measures 2.25 inches long. It is endemic to Cuba.
Hummingbirds have 1,000-1,500 feathers, the fewest number of feathers of any bird species in the world. Not only do they not need as many feathers because of their tiny size, but fewer feathers also keeps them more lightweight for easier flight.
The average ruby-throated hummingbird weighs 3 grams. In comparison, a nickel weighs 4.5 grams. It would take more than 150 ruby-throated hummingbirds to weigh one pound.
From 25-30 percent of a hummingbird’s weight is in its pectoral muscles. These are the broad chest muscles principally responsible for flight.
A hummingbird’s maximum forward flight speed is 30 miles per hour. These birds can reach up to 60 miles per hour in a dive, and hummingbirds have many adaptations for unique flight.
Hummingbirds lay the smallest eggs of all birds. They measure less than 1/2 inch long but may represent as much as 10 percent of the mother’s weight at the time the eggs are laid. A hummingbird egg is smaller than a jelly bean!
A hummingbird must consume approximately 1/2 of its weight in sugar daily, and the average hummingbird fe
