Who are you surrounding yourself with? Do they inspire you? Do they support you? Do they bring you positive energy?

For the Love of Hummingbirds…

HUMMINGBIRDS. The smallest of all birds they are native to the Americas and comprise the biological family. Trochilidae. With about 360 species, they occur from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, but the vast majority of the species are found in the tropics (source: Wikipedia )

If you’ve followed along with me for a while you know that for the past 4 years hummingbirds have been one of my favorite photography challenges. They are sneaky and quick. You never know when they will appear. I have spent countless hours waiting and watching for these tiny garden fairies to appear, hoping to get the perfect shot!

I had almost given up on them this year. And it seems like a lot of other hummingbird watchers had given up as well. But, the past few weeks these little garden fairies seem to be making their appearance. This little guy gave us quite the show the other night.

They say hummingbirds spiritually represent inspiration and hope, and can be a guiding light that can move you closer to fulfilling your dreams. I don’t know about moving me closer to fulfilling my dreams, but I do know they bring inspiration to my photography!

Here’s to a new week filled with inspiration!

“Just One More Try……”

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is to just try one more time.” ~Thomas Edison

How many times have you come close to giving up on something but then decided to give just one more try and then found yourself succeeding? I know I have🙋‍♀️.

I’ve also witnessed this first-hand with our 8 year old granddaughter, recently. She is a very good horse rider/whisperer. She excels at this beyond her years. But, one of her horses, a rescue horse, is very frisky and doesn’t really like to be ridden.

But, with the help of her father and a strong determination to gain the trust and confidence of the horse she set out to conquer both hers and the horse’s fears. She must have tried 3 – 4 times to get on the saddle. With each and every try and her father by her side, the horse and the rider began to bond and soon trusted each other.

The triumph really paid off the next week at horse camp when she was the only rider (and probably the youngest) who was able to control the one of the more mature (and larger) of the horses! ❤

What are you trying to succeed at? Don’t give up….keep giving it “just one more try.”

Cheers!
