Photographer's Note

The hummingbirds or Hummingbirds are the smallest birds in the world. Agile and restless in their beautiful and varied colors, enchant all those who observe the wonderful choreographies that they draw in air. Flying endlessly in all directions, are always looking for the nectar they feed and to get it introduced its long beak and thin in every flower they encounter. A WIDE VARIETY of hummingbirds is a wealth of animal world. With about three hundred species, these tiny animals form a major bird families of the world.

The hummingbird has its origin in South America, from where it spread to the rest of the continent. Both can be found in the rainforests and in deserts, mountains and plains, adapting to all kinds of weather. Some species live in cold regions of northern Alaska, while others do well in extreme environmental conditions of South America. In every corner where there are flowers blooming, these little creatures come to visit them and take their honey.

ARE GREAT Munchers the hummingbirds. Although they are very small, they spend a lot of energy because they are always in motion: their wings, for example, are the fastest, with about seventy beats per second. To reset these forces, they are always sucking the flowers.
