The materials making these mobiles are exquisitely simple – wire, fishing line, paper mache, paint.

One touch of one hummingbird and all of them are flying, fearless in space, reminding me of hummingbirds in the Costa Rican Monteverde Rain Forest, reminding me of a hummingbird in South Fork, Colorado, reminding me of hummingbird’s gravitating to a feeder on brother Alan’s front porch in Palo Duro Canyon.

The hummingbird’s all dance in the air, in a circle, set in motion by a little tap by my right hand forefinger.

Setting things in motion is what us humans do, instinctively.

My right forefinger, on my laptop mouse, starts this video in motion too, with a slight gentle tap.
