Found Object #1
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 in the bamboo grove 15 feet from our courtyard balcony.  For several  weeks, we had front row seats to the incredible process of eggs transforming 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 the Arroyo Seco trail, I found this dead hummer on the ground near the Farm. It must have flown into a window and broken it’s neck. Wanting to give it a proper burial, I placed it on this leaf and carried it home before resuming my jog.  When I returned half an hour later, the setting sun was casting a sharp light streak across the studio floor. I hastily set up my camera to memorialize this hummer. Natural light is beautiful.
