Angelwings is the second of two hummingbirds I prepared for my last shows that I forgot to share. She's another of my friend Michael Searcy's girls. He is the hummingbird whisperer in Arizona. With the use of the Fairy Duster flower again, I consider her to be the sister of Fairy Dusting which I posted previously.
I like how her wings are reminiscent of an angel. The Mayan believed that our loved ones return as hummingbirds. I had an experience with one when my mother passed that causes me to believe there is merit in the Mayan belief. Our loved ones are always with us, we just can't always see them in their corporeal form.
