“A living prismatic gem…”

” Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aërial dance among the flowers — a living prismatic gem that changes its colour with every change of position… it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.”

~W. H. Hudson, Green Mansions: A Romance of the Tropical Forest, 1916
