It wouldn’t be summer without hummingbirds! Two hummingbirds frequent the flowers on my deck daily. I’ve tried to take photos, but they move quickly! I learned so much about these amazing birds from the video below.

Biomimicry is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies found in nature to solve human design challenges. Click here to learn more about the Center for Biologically Inspired Design at Georgia Tech. How are we learning from hummingbirds?

Did you know that hummingbirds in North America migrate to Mexico and Central America? They will begin their journey south around the end of August.
