Print inspired by the Bogota Sunangel hummingbird.
Bogota Sunangel is a hummingbird species with a bluish black body, deeply forked dark purple tail, and bright green crown and chin. This species isn't officially considered extinct, due to a lack of data. It is only known from one specimen from Bogota from 1909, and has never been seen alive. It is thought that the Bogota Sunangel lived in the cloud forest of Colombia. Recently, the hummingbird species was thought to have been rediscovered, but the bird found does not match the description of the Bogota Sunangel. DNA analysis will give the final answer. (I am not a bird person, but am somewhat following this development since finding out about it). From descriptions and pictures of the 1909 specimen, the Bogota Sunangel was a gorgeous hummingbird.

Thanks, Rhonda, for the lovely comment! I think it would look gorgeous printed on the silk, too. I'm waiting on a swatch of it on Kona, to see how the colors will do.

The subtle shapes of the Sunangel hummingbirds set against the dark background of their rainforest habitat, hint of the mystery surrounding these elusive and possibly extinct birds. This design would look gorgeous printed on the silk!
