From Beguiled by the Wild: The Art of Charley Harper, page 95 (Flower Valley Press, 1994):
Feather for feather, the hummingbird is the fiercest, fastest, fiestiest flier in the firmament. Forget the hawk, the owl, the eagle. This flyweight will zing anything on the wing, even an airplane, that violates his airspace. Straight up or down, sideways and backward he zips, hovering for frequent refueling on high-octane nectar. Courting, he tosses caution to the wind and barnstorms up a circus to seduce his significant other. Yet, for all his macho, he is so fragile he can easily perish in a spider's web.

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
