How the Hummingbird Got His Colors ~ Legend # 26 of 30


"Every human being has
a personal legend to be fulfilled
and this is our reason for being in the world"
- Coelho


According to a Mayan Legend, Hummingbird got her colors as a wedding gift from the other birds of the forest. The title of this post is "How the Hummingbird Got His Colors" because my painting is obviously a male. I am really missing my little cuties, as droves of them vacated the place in a hurry about two weeks ago. I still have four of my fifteen feeders up and we saw a few stragglers earlier this week. It's unusual for them all to be gone already. I hope that isn't an indication of a hard winter or worse. We certainly don't want to experience anything like "Superstorm Sandy" this fall!
