If you venture too close to their nest of pea-sized eggs, you may get dive-bombed by a hummingbird!

For such a tiny thing, they make an intimidating, almost electronic noise. Here in the U.S. Pacific Northwest we have lots of Rufous Hummingbirds, and they are fascinating to watch. Although they dine several times a day, they snub their beaks at nectar with less than ten percent sugar content. When they do find suitable flower juice, they slurp up to five times their tiny weight per day, and supplement that with insects and spiders -- oh, yum! They can fly backwards, and at 34 mph top speed they are swifter than a Volkswagen van on a mountain incline. Contrary to popular belief, they DO know the words.

This handpainted pillow measures 20" square and is fluffed with polyester fiberfill in its own casing, which can be removed for laundering. Because the image is rendered on indoor-outdoor commercial fabric in permanent textile paint, this cushion is happy on the patio, deck, yacht, garden bench, beach blanket or Adirondack chair as well as inside your home.

Not a reprint or transfer, but an artist's original which was designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by Crabby Chris. If you have access to the Poor Man's Pantone (a box of Crayolas), grab it and check out the closest color matches: Tumbleweed, Wild Strawberry, Robin's Egg Blue, and Turquoise Blue.

The Aztecs used the hummingbird's image in their art to represent vigor, energy and a strong work ethic. Whoever (or whatever) carved the humongous image on the Plains of Nazca obviously deemed them worthy subjects for really big line art. I think I appreciate them just because they exist, and they let me know that summer is almost here!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to high shipping costs, customers outside of North America will receive COVERS ONLY.
