Bumblebees, watercolor on paper
I am always amazed and farcinated by the flying ability in bumble bees. Scientifically, the bumblebees wings does not have the capacity to lift their large bodies, still, they are skillfull flyers. It makes my heart dance when I watch a bumblebee hower in midair and their wings are hardly visible.

Another amazing winged creature is the hummingbird. Their wings move as fast as that of the bumblebee and their capacity to hower in the air as they collect nectar is even greater than the bumblebee.
