Hummer Heaven 

Fun fact about hummers:

Hummers are “new world” birds and are only found in the North and South America

Hummers can fly up to 34 MPH (54 KM/H)

Hummers can hover, fly forward, backward and UPSIDE DOWN!

The overall symbolism of the hummingbird is joy. In animal totems the hummingbird is a powerful symbol of life and joy, Because of their ability to hover hummers are often thought to be reminders that life is meant to be savored, their tireless activity symbolizes perseverance and because hummingbirds do not simply flap their wings up and down, but instead move them in the pattern of the infinity symbol, or a figure eight, they are often thought to symbolize eternity and everlasting life. The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies.
