Leucistic hummingbirds are rare animals, very difficult to spot. However, the true albino is the rarest of all. These specimens have pink eyes, beaks and feet. They suffer from a genetic mutation that stops the creation of any dark pigment. In both cases, their condition makes them more vulnerable to predators due to their disadvantage for camouflage.
The hummingbird has a very powerful spiritual meaning. In some cultures the hummingbird means resurrection. It seems to die on cold nights, but returns to life again at dawn.
The flutter of the hummingbird is associated to eternity for it draws an infinity symbol with the movement of its wings.
It also represents the unconditional love that sustains the entire universe.
