Collecting plant down for padding...
- and camouflaged with lichen!
I've written about these ethereal little creatures before - but aren't hummingbirds just a little bit of perfection!? They really are like something taken staight out of a fairy world with their fluttering wings - too fast for the naked eye - and their nests held together with spider webs, padded with plant down and camouflaged with lichen.
