. . . just because it is so beautiful, and blue, and purple, and green, and incandescent, and its wings and heart have the same velocity.
. . . just because the hummingbird flitted into my view, pure gift, moments before leaving Ecuador, after a week in the Galapagos with the big birds: blue-footed boobies, miniature penguins, Galapagos hawks, wide-winged frigates, flamingoes, and pelicans, plus Darwin’s finches.
. . . because beauty is to be shared.
… because hummingbirds are traveling light.
