The Humble Hummingbird
I've had a fascination with hummingbirds since my first visit to New Mexico decades ago. City life in Florida doesn't afford much opportunity to see these glorious, beautiful creatures. I was blessed about a year ago with a hummer sighting in my back garden. The visit lasted only a couple days, no doubt on his migration back to parts unknown. But in the 40 years I've lived in my Florida home, this was the first time I'd ever seen a hummingbird in my garden. You can't imagine my excitement!
The above photo is not great as I was using my cell phone and zooming in from my about 25 feet away so I wouldn't scare the little guy. He was snacking from my Fire Spike plant. He came to visit the garden in the mornings and I was so lucky to get this shot.
Thanks so much for taking time to visit me friends. I welcome your comments so please feel free to post one. If you are lucky enough to see hummingbirds, remember to savor the moment and celebrate life.
Wishing you many blessings ~~ Mary
