This gorgeous creation is known as the green Regal flowerbird and Crotalaria cunninghamii is the stunning plant’s scientific name. It’s a member of the legume family that includes chickpeas and alfalfa. The perennial shrub is native to inland northern Australia, where it thrives along sandy dunes. Its ties to Australia are quite ironic, considering that no hummingbirds live there. That’s wild, man. Mother Nature doin’ her thing per usual.

Gimme a holler.
