Darting, flitting acrobats,
shimmering rainbows.
Many times a minute tiny wings whirr
fluorescent vibrant colours.
Long curved beaks tongue the nectar,
dipping into the crevices of tall flowers.
High in the Andes finding plants in
red, orange and bright pink.
Enticed by humming that takes energy
they take a welcome drink,
keeping the head stable
while the body moves.
