Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Aves - The class of vertebrate animals that are typically bipedal and warm-blooded, lay large-yolked hardshelled eggs, often arboreal, and possessing feathers, hollow bones, forelimbs adapted for flight (although some have lost the ability to fly) and hindlimbs for perching and locomotion, a four-chambered heart, keen vision, a horny beak without teeth, and a large muscular stomach. Birds arose from theropod dinosaurs, which were an order of carnivorous dinosaurs.
  • flower - General term for any decorative motif in the form of a flower, which is the showy reproductive part of flowering plants or angiosperms. Common examples are motifs resembling roses, tulips, lilies, or daisies.
  • flower - Material comprising flowers, which are the reproductive portion of any plant in the division Magnoliophyta (Angiospermae).
  • townscapes - Creative works that depict settlements that may be considered towns or villages. For creative works depicting settlements that may be considered cities, use "cityscapes." For images that seem more documentary than creative, prefer "views." To designate the actual built forms of towns or cities as perceived visually and aesthetically, use "townscapes (built environment)."
  • Trochilidae - Members of a family containing about 320 species of small, often brightly colored birds native to the Americas. They have compact, strongly muscled bodies and rather long, bladelike wings that, unlike the wings of other birds, connect to the body only from the shoulder joint, allowing them to flap them very fast to hover in mid-air (creating a humming sound) and to fly straight up, down, sideways, and backwards; their bill is typically long and slender, adapted for securing nectar from certain types of flowers; some of the species represent the smallest living bird and are among the smallest of warm-blooded vertebrates.
