Anguilla-beaches.com visitor Hannah Mendelbaum wrote to me about her daily experience with
Anguilla hummingbirds during her stay at the Malliouhana...
"The hummingbirds would fly
in, hover, back up and fly off as fast as they had appeared. They are
amazing aviators - the only birds that can fly backwards. The sun glistened
on their feathers showing up as green, turquoise and blue flashes."
Hummingbirds are hypnotizing.
I could gaze at this one for hours, the way it morphs from the driftwood. Another one my Dad wants to ship, due
to the delicate intricacy.
