The Buzzing Flowerpecker (Dicaeum hypoleucum) or white-bellied flowerpecker is a species of bird in the Dicaeidae – Flowerpeckers family. It is endemic to the Philippines. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
[I chose this bird because “Buzzing” could also mean “Busy” as in our Lord God always watching out for our souls.]

Both beautiful images~~full of tenderness!
Busy people usually have a strong work ethic. Earlier today I saw a busy busboy (at a local restaurant), straining to carry a heavy container (of thick china dishes, metal utensils, mugs, etc.); obviously, the weight was a challenge as he hurriedly worked, to collect dirty dishes and used paper napkins, etc., while cleaning up tables abandoned by sometimes-sloppy customers, speaking politely to adults and children eating at the restaurant. It reminded me of some of my younger years (yes, I can still remember some of those long-ago days), working at physically challenging jobs — so I could empathize, and so I just had to hand him a generous tip (which is unexpected for most restaurant busboys). The sweating young man was surprised and grateful — I replied, “you’re obviously working hard today”. May God bless the many unsung workers (seen and unseen), whom our worldly society deems as “little people”, as many take seriously God’ commandment (Exodus 20:9-11) that we all work 6 days and rest 1, each week. Think about it: those so-called “little people” (to use an unbiblical term, since God has put huge value into each of us), who busily work hard, could benefit from an extra blessing or two. Before you forget to do so, please pray for someone you know (or meet, or see) who have a humble lot in life — pray that he or she has an unusual blessing today.

Yes, there are many unsung heroes around. Unfortunately, the Lord God Creator and Sustainer is overlooked or ignored. Yet, He is still busy sustaining our World, whether given credit or not.
Very needed prayer you mentioned.
