This is one of my favorites! I took this shot on the TV setting so the wings aren't as blurred.
From scarlet to powdered gold,
to blazing yellow,
to the rare
ashen emerald,
to the orange and black velvet
of your shimmering corselet,
out to the tip
that like
an amber thorn
begins you,
small, superlative being,
you are a miracle,
and you blaze
From “Ode to the Hummingbird”
