Animal Spirits: The Hummingbird


Think there’s nothing magical going on around you? Hummmm…. hum, hum, hummingbird your way into the magical realms of these light transformers.  The post includes a documentary with a 52 minute run time that opens the world of exotic beauty, fierce aggression, in the macro world of sequined living.
