I think you'll like this answer ... this was inspired by a movie, Andrea, and a favorite of mine, (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) ... though the story sprang from my odd imagination, haha! Glad you enjoyed it, my friend! :-) <3

Oh, the sweet hummingbird! So touching to read, and so symbolic. I recently painted a picture of a hummingbird, but it is impossible to make a hummingbird look as delicate and sweet on a large canvas.

Thank you so very much, SW, I so appreciate the kind comments! Both my mom and sis are amazing artists, (my mom well-known), but I think my favorite Hummingbird paintings are tattoos, (believe-it-or-not, watercolor style). I have a huge folder on my pc with favorite art ... I draw myself, but just for fun. Blessings my friend! :-) <3
