Hummingbird bead from Fenton

These beads are made in the USA - Hand crafted with love.

Hummingbirds arebirds that constitute the family Trochilidae. They are among the smallest of birds, most species measuring in the 7.5–13 cm (3–5 in) range. Indeed, the smallest extant bird species is a hummingbird, the 5-cm Bee Hummingbird. They hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings
12–80 times per second (depending on the species). They are known as
hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating
wings, which flap at frequencies audible to humans. They also have among
the highest metabolisms of any animal. To conserve energy when food is
scarce, they have the ability to go into a hibernation-like state (torpor) where their metabolic rate is slowed to 1/15th of its normal rate.[1] They can fly at speeds exceeding 15 m/s (54 km/h; 34 mph);[2] they are also the only group of birds with the ability to fly backwards.[3] The smallest species of hummingbirds weigh less than a penny.

Lake Placid Beads and Adk Charms and Gifts

Lake Placid Beads and Adk Charms 

Now available online as well as in the store.  Even if you have not visited Lake Placid, these moose, adk chairs, bear and many others fit the "camp" life.  The log cabin, loons and owl reminds me of the movie - My Cousin Vinny when they get away from the noise of city life.  I think you all have camped and think of the bear and food.  Try to hide the food from the bear..

#funfact about #owls... Owls, #birds of the order Strigiformes, include about 200 species
of mostly solitary and #nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright
stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision and binaural hearing, and #feathers adapted for silent flight.  To some cultures they are symbols of #wisdom.  In the #adirondacks we have a lot of these beautiful animals.

This Fenton Owl is on a tree branch with the full moon above.  How great is this.
