Beautiful. I would love to have these Hummingbirds visit me for Christmas :)

Thanks June. This is a clip from a double spread in "Fever on the Land", one title in a series of books on climate change "Earth has a Fever" that I am writing and illustrating for ABDO books in Minneapolis. These little ruby-throated hummingbirds are now out of sync with the flowering of their favorite nectar-producing flowers, after arriving back late from their migration.

When nature goes wrong, it is so sad and very worrying. The balance of life is easily thrown off by the smallest change.
