The humming bird is the smallest kind of bird in the world. Also because of their feeding style, they are the only birds who are able to hover. Their wings beat at an average of 500 beats a minute to help them stay aloft.
Pacific Northwest mother and artist. I work from two studios, one at an old farm house in the Scandanavian village of Poulsbo for encaustic and the other -- a beach house overlooking Hood Canal for oil and sculpture.
