As you can see it's not a bird but a lovely moth about 3-4 cm long :) It's common name is colibri because like the original one (with we do not have in italy) it "drinks" nectar hovering over the flowers... This shot was 2°place for the macro contest (http://www.artwanted.com/mb/contest.cfm?Topic=305116) ....thanks to all!!
