“Hummingbird & Canna”
“Grace is what picks me up and lifts my wings high above and I fly! Grace always conquers! Be graceful in everything; in anger, in sadness, in joy, in kindness, and in unkindness, retain grace with you!”
― C. JoyBell C.
For the past few days, as I looked out the window from my desk, I saw this hummingbird feeding on our canna lilies. He never came at the same time of day and I never had my camera ready. His routine was to arrive and drink from each blossom then move on to the next plant. When he was done with ours he flew next door to the neighbour’s flowers for more.
Today, I had my camera ready and the light was good enough that I could shoot through the window. I made several images and this is the best one. Even at this, the plants are not very close and he moved so quickly that there is a slight movement evident in his body. All things considered, I’m fairly pleased with this moment.
