Delightful Hummingbird Tattoos – One of the Beautiful Birds
Spring is officially born, and if the scattered beautiful flowers and annoying allergy strikes were not enough of a sign, then hummingbirds are safe. As one of my favorite birds, hummingbirds are known for their delicate little frames, available in a variety of colors and the ridiculous speeds at which their wings float.
There are over 350 different variations of hummingbirds, which means 349 are more variations than I knew. You’re really learning something new every day. Like their other fast-flying friends, bees, hummingbirds consume the nectar of flowers with their long narrow beaks that serve as straw to recover the sweet liquid. Hummingbirds are very specific about the nectars they consume and rarely touch nectars that are less than 10% sugar, with a higher sugar content which is what they prefer. Honestly, I can’t blame you for anything. I’m the same way when it comes to drinks as I prefer a lot of Soda on the water every day.
Here is an interesting fact, hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of an animal in flight, because their heart can beat at almost 1200 beats per Minute with a respiratory rate of about 250 breaths per Minute, even at rest. Their metabolism is so high that, to save energy, hummingbirds have to walk at night in torpor, a state of deep sleep, to prevent them from dying. Despite their small size and rapid metabolism, hummingbirds can live up to a decade, with the longest known lifespan being 12 years in the wild.
Hummingbirds symbolize the small pleasures of life, endurance and endurance due to their small size and remarkable agility. In many cultures, hummingbirds are considered messengers of love and a reminder of the present Moment. In dream theory, seeing a hummingbird is a good omen and a sign that good luck is on the way.
If my thoughts about hummingbirds weren’t enough to satisfy their cravings, and bird watching is simply not an Option, we’ve put together the best tattoos we could find to celebrate these colorful creatures in all their glory.
