I think the hummingbird is a magnificent creature, even trying to capture this shot, this complex creation taught me a great deal. Patience. Grace. Endurance. Beauty. Simplicity. Much, much more...
A hummingbird is like falling in love...a heart all a flutter, mind and body racing, feeling a hundred miles an hour, yet hovering in one place...a beauty that transcends, a glow that can't be covered, a simple way of being, yet hard to find again.
"The hummingbird symbolizes many different concepts. Because of its speed, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. The hummingbird is a messenger. It is also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. The hummingbird is also able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past. But, this bird also teaches that we must not dwell on our past; we need to move forward. When the hummingbird hovers over flowers while drinking nectar, we learn that we should savor each moment, and appreciate the things we love."
