The Power of a Hummingbird
I came to photography by way of my native garden and my writing life. A few years ago we ripped out the lawns in our typical Silicon Valley yard (tiny and surrounded by cement) and put in California native plants. Water conservation was an issue but moreover I wanted to create a wildlife habitat. Over time the birds and the bees and even the worms returned.Suddenly I had a yard full of critters but I had no idea what they were called. I grabbed my camera and started snapping photos and then returned to the computer to try and identify them all.
Sometimes it worked and I learned to tell a chestnut-backed chickadee from a goldfinch. Sometimes it was harder to tell what kind of bug or butterfly I had. But it didn't take long before I was hooked on the way our garden was coming to life.
In 2012 an Anna's hummingbird, whom I named Lily, began to build a nest in my backyard. I documented her daily work on the nest and the subsequent laying of the eggs. When rats stole her eggs the day before they were expected to hatch, I was devastated and wondered if I would ever pick up the camera again. I did. Lily helped me learn to be still. In learning to be still she taught me to see. In learning to see she taught me to hear. In learning to listen, I have learned more of what I want to say.
