Circle of Life- This past January and February, we had a rare opportunity to observe the birth cycle of an Anna’s hummingbird up close.
By chance, we spotted a hummingbird nest on a bamboo groove about 15 feet away from our courtyard balcony.  For the next several weeks, we had front row seats to witness the incredible process of eggs transformed into fledglings.
We were ecstatic and sad the day the two fledglings left the nest. But our hummingbird story didn’t end there.
The very next day, during my daily jog around Arroyo Seco trail, I found this dead hummer on the ground near the Farm. It must have flew into a window and broke it’s neck. Wanting to give it a proper burial, I placed it on this leaf and carried it back to the Farm before resuming my jog.  When I finally got home half an hour later, the setting sun cast a sharp light streak across the studio floor so I hastily setup my camera to memorialized this hummer.  Natural light is beautiful.
