Joao Silvestrini, an elderly man from Barretos, Brazil has a very special friend. A hummingbird. His fluttery little friend visits him everyday in his kitchen. They talk, eat, and essentially have a good time. Sometimes the hummingbird can’t stay long and leaves, only to have Joao call him back. The well-mannered bird, which plainly has respect for its elders, gracefully complies and gives the old man a few more moments. Amidst all the turmoil in the world today it’s nice to know that there are beautiful relationships that exist, especially between man and nature.
