The Birds and the Bees

There are a lot of interesting facts linked with the hummingbird. It is one of the smallest birds in the world with wings that can beat 200 times per second, creating a bee-like buzzing sound. This type of bird also has the highest metabolism compared to other homo-thermic animals. More importantly, hummingbirds have a mutual symbiotic relationship with flowers from which they get nectar—they flit from flower to flower while mixing pollens to help the flowers reproduce, along the way eating small insects flying near the flowers. This symbolism is applied in the service of a one-stop dining venue in Jalan Progo, Bandung.
