Hawaiian ‘Akepas are known for the male’s bright orange coloring and their ability to bounce from branch to branch like cheesy-puff acrobats. I imagine these two ‘Akepas are like the circus high-flying acrobats of old. The male ‘Akepa is swinging in close to the lady ‘Akepa who watches adoringly. Once he gains enough momentum, he gets what he’s after: a well-earned kiss!
