Daily Practice 168/365

Title: "Hummingbird breaths"
(click to view larger - recommended)
I sit on the studio porch in the morning, reading, eating a little breakfast, enjoying the freshness of our cool spring. Now that the hanging baskets with fuchsia are up at each end of the overhanging roof, the hummingbird visits, wings beating furiously as he hovers and samples the nectar. But first he flies over in front of me, hovers for a few seconds in greeting, before sharing a peaceful breakfast routine with me.

I don't usually see ethereal red, but I think this is it! A beautiful abstract image and a reminder of the possibilities of mindfulness.

I'm not usually a colour fan - and especially not red! But this is overwhelmingly emotive and beautiful to me :)
