When the Mayan gods created the world, they realized they were missing something that would take their wishes and thoughts to the world. Since they had no clay or corn left to make another animal, they took a jade stone and carved an arrow. But it was a very small arrow. Once it was ready, they took it and breathed life into it. It flew into the air and became the hummingbird. (Mayan legend). Photos: Jorge Arciga Avila/Notimex.
