In its quest for nectar, a hummingbird sips from about 1,000 flowers a day. As it flaps its wings 70 times a second, zipping from meal to meal, it can fly sideways, backward or forward. If it wants, it can hover or glide upside-down. It remembers every flower it visits, and knows how long it will take before each flower produces new nectar. To some Spanish speakers, hummingbirds are known as joyas voladoras, or “flying jewels.” Take all this info and use it as a metaphor for who you can be next week.
