Stepping Out

If we were having coffee, I would tell you I have resumed my daily walk accompanied by Google Fit which is counting my steps. I did a good loop around the community enjoying the sunshine. The temperature was below 90 F with a slight breeze, compatible with walking. I kept an eye out for roadrunners. I did see one at a distance heading into someone’s yard. I saw two fluffy white-tailed bunnies who quickly hopped away. On the way back I was admiring the green Palo Brea trees and almost missed the tiny hummingbird perched on a thin branch. He didn’t wait for me to take his photo.

Black-chinned hummingbird by Renee Grayson on

“When you see a black hummingbird, it signifies change, rebirth, and spiritual transformation. You can move to a higher realm of awakening. A black hummingbird also means that you might face a challenge that can bring setbacks in your life. If you are persistent and confident, you can overcome those setbacks.”

    yea – trying to photograph a hummingbird after seeing one is asking a lot.
    you pretty much have to set up near a feeder and wait for them to come to you because they don’t sit still for very long.
    Keep on walking my friend. I think that’s what’s keeping my alive these days.

    I’m glad you’re walking, and I like walking along with you. We jumped briefly into the 90s this past weekend, and I was walking our dog at 6:00 am to beat the heat.

    Interesting information about the hummingbird.

    It is so difficult to take photos of hummingbirds. I think the last successful shot was when I was in Costa Rica. They had all these feeders for the hummingbirds making it easy to capture photos.
