Earlier this year I said I'd try to catch a hummingbird -- in a photo, of course. I don't quite have the proper equipment, but here are a couple of attempts of a female Black-chinned Hummingbird. In this first one, she has her back to us as she's taking a drink.
Here she's perched -- for a few seconds. Even when they perch, they seem to be vibrating.
According to Wikipedia: The Aztec god Huitzilopochtli is often depicted as a hummingbird. The Nahuatl word huitzil (hummingbird) is an onomatopoeic word derived from the sounds of the hummingbird's wing-beats and zooming flight.
I'll finish this with a tableau of Morning Glories and Daylily we spied while taking a walk.
