One day, the legend says, that there was a great fire in the forest. All the animals were scared and hiding as they helplessly observed the tragedy.
Only the humming-bird went back and forth with a few drops of water in his beak to stop the fire. The armadillo irritated by the useless bird’s agitation told him: ” Humming-bird are you crazy? There is no way you will put out that fire”
The humming-bird replied:” I know, but I’m doing my part”
