Hummingbirds are among the smallest birds in the world — and are perhaps one of the most underrated creatures in nature.

These tiny adorable birds are most well known for their rapid wing-flapping while hovering mid-air, going at a rate of about 50 flaps per second.

What we seldom realize, however, is just how incredibly exquisite hummingbirds are, and how amazing of a personality they can have.

California-based musician Tracy Johnson is extremely passionate about photographing hummingbirds, and for showcasing their inherent, unexpected beauty to the rest of the world on her Instagram account.

She first got interested in them when the vibrant colors of their feathers were reflected by the sunlight. Every time they stop and feed from her hand.
