In Mayan legend, Tzunuum, the hummingbird was at first created very plainly by the Great Spirit, though she was tiny, delicate, and flew with great skill. She took pride in her flying ability and did not mind her plainness, but when it came time for her wedding, the other birds surprised her with a wedding dress and adornments donated from their own bright plumage, for the loved the humble and sweet Tzunuum. The Honeybees brought honey nectar and honey for the feast, and flowers, and the trees bowed down to let them reside among sweet orange and plummaria blossoms. Butterflies danced at the site of the wedding.
