A while back, I noticed that the logo for Ian Fleming Screenshot 2023-04-04 at 9.32.20 AMPublications was not a pistol as one might expect, but a hummingbird. And not just any hummingbird, mind you, but a Red-billed Streamertail.

I asked the publisher if she would be interested in an article about the bird behind the logo, and she immediately agreed.

The article features photos I took of the bird while in Jamaica, a photo by Ricardo Miller (one of Jamaica's top birders), plus other hummingbird shots and a photo of Goldeneye, now a luxury resort.
