Birds of all sorts are really neat — a lot of ‘em are super smart, and besides, they can totally fly, or at least a lot of ‘em can. More than people. But one of the varieties of birds — man, not even my FAVORITE type of bird, that’s how cool birds are — is one I find super neat. Hummingbirds. Their wings flap so fast they’re like blurs, and they’re really tiny.
I mean, jeez, it’s kinda amazing how an animal can be so small and fly around and not be an insect. Honestly, it’s hard to imagine a bird that small — it’s almost like they should be butterflies or something. And I suppose they’re delicate, since birds are a little delicate, but they’re not delicate in the way a butterfly is. You touch a butterfly’s wings, it can’t fly anymore (don’t do that, man, don’t be a jerk). You touch a hummingbird’s wings, hummingbird kicks your ass.
