Oh Hummingbird! By Leada Wood,Texas Artist

Day 23 of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

Hummingbirds are natures jeweled messengers and there is a lot to be learned from the smallest of birds. Because of its speed, a hummingbird is known as a messenger and a stopper of time. It is  also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. Hummingbirds are able to fly backwards, hover and stop in an instant. They are fierce warriors defending their territory from other hummingbirds, and are tireless always seeking the sweetest flowers.

When a hummingbird hovers over a flower drinking nectar, we learn we should savor each moment, and appreciate the things we love. They remind us of the beauty of life, and to appreciate the magic of the moment and to enjoy the gift of being alive.

In China and around the world the Hummingbird symbolizes powerful energy, transformation and joy. This tiny, colorful bird also symbolizes the ability to overcome the impossible, as well as flexibility in life circumstances.

I can't wait for spring and their return!
