Orig. Hi 8 3’
Amazilias viridigaster is the scientific name of a hummingbird that felt from its nest and I cared for two weeks. Before releasing it, I installed an artificial source attached to a branch of a tree in the window of my room. The nectar mixed, 3 cups of water for 1 of sugar, I changed everyday. When observing Amazilias kept returning to me, I placed a video camera by the window, connected to a TV in which I could appreciate, in a greater scale, the hummingbird illuminated by the light of the morning, of the dusk, in the rain … For two months, from seven in the morning to six in the afternoon, every fifteen minutes, the hummingbird came to drink from its artificial feeder.
His very presence transformed my waiting time into a poem.
