• See the gold flecks, shimmering on her wings? Let’s take them as a sign, shall we, that 2014 holds great things in store, just waiting to be mined… Happy New Year to you (to us all)!

    • Re: Happy happy New Year!

      Yes, I agree! Funny, isn’t it, the way that totems choose us, instead of vice versa? I mean, I’ve always loved hummingbirds, but they’ve shown up for me a lot lately, in ways that suggest they’re delivering (positive) messages.

      I will say, though, that I was crushed when I found a dead hummingbird in my flowerbed yesterday. It probably died of old age, but still. I buried it & surrounded the tny mound with flowers. I’m still wondering, this morning, if that unfortunate discovery holds any significance, or if its merely happenstance.

    • Yes, Peter, I took that photo at Crescent Bay Park in Laguna. Thanks for the compliment –and for helping me take my photography further than I ever dreamed possible. As you might well imagine, I was thrilled when I was finally able to capture a hummingbird at rest. This, after countless practice sessions. As an added bonus, the zoom on my new bridge camera allowed me to capture the finer detailing on her feathers. Ta da! And without a tripod, I might add!
