They have been called glittering fragments of the rainbow, jewels of the air. They have fascinated the Victorian poets as well as gardeners, birdwatchers, and anyone lucky enough to see one. They are the dazzling hummingbirds of the world, found solely in the Americas. With their lightning speed and iridescent plumage that appears to change color with the sun, it's extremely difficult to capture a hummingbird in a photograph and do the amazing creatures justice. Incredibly, this wonderful book manages just that with 50 gorgeous photos highlighting the hummingbirds' different species, attributes, and many talents. Comprehensive text also presents information about their habitats and lives, rapturous quotes from their many eloquent fans, and practical advice for attracting them to your garden. Just make sure you've accomplished everything you need to do in the day before watching these acrobatic wonders because you won't be able to tear yourself away anytime soon.
