Hummingbird: FEISTY Feathers Bead
The hummingbird is the smallest of all birds, with its bright array of iridescent shimmering feathers; it is ever so dainty and beautiful. But don’t let its beauty and size fool you. This tiny little miracle is ever so fierce and strong. Even though the hummingbird is little, it can travel great distances and endure extreme conditions.
The hummingbird is known to wing its way as far as 2000 miles to reach its destination. The extremely rapid beat (50-80 beats per second) of its feisty feathered wings burns an enormous amount of energy; therefore the hummingbird needs a lot of calories in order to sustain and survive its long and strenuous journey. They are constantly working, search for, and sipping sweet nectar along the way. The hummingbird is a symbol of determination, resilience, and fearlessness. This pretty little bird may only weigh just a few ounces, but it has a larger than life attitude, with a mighty will to win.
“You came early into this world. You were such a wee thing. So frail, so fragile. I feared you wouldn’t make it. But your father, he never doubted. He always said you would be the stongest of them all. And he was right.” -Valka (How to Train your Dragon)
