We are receiving frequent visits from a pure white (Leucistic) hummingbird.
He is friendly when we approach him at the feeder and has even flown up to my husband who has been able to take a number of photos.
Leucistic hummingbirds are rare, but albino hummers are rarer. Leucistic hummers have dark eyes, while those of albinos are pink. These small birds are vulnerable to predators because of their light color.
In American Indian lore, hummingbirds represent joy. White is a symbol of purity and truth.
My husband, David, took these photos. We do not have photoshopping capabilities here but when we return home he will work with them and many other photos he has captured.
This little fellow inspired the poem I submitted to Poetry Potluck: https://liv2write2day.wordpress.com/2011/04/25/revelation-poetry-potlucks-theme-of-art-music-and-poetry/
