That appears to be the case. I heard a story in the country where I live in now about the reason why hummingbirds “kiss” flowers.To keep it short basically there were two lovers, someone (iirc her father) opposed their relationship and had another man in mind for her. In her desperation at being separated from her true love she begged the moon, asking her to help her escape that marriage, so the moon turned her into a flower. The girl’s lover frantically looked for her but couldn’t find her, the young man cried and the moon took pity on him and revealed what happened, the young man begged the moon to turn him into a bird so he could find her because upon touching her petals he’d recognize the taste of his lover’s kiss. Even to this day they say the hummingbird travels the earth in search of his beloved flower.
