_Surrender©RGallucci Photography <br/> www.rgallucci.com <br/> ----- <br/>Shoot Date: August 25, 2020<br/>Canon EOS 5D Mark IV | EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM | f/8.0 | ¹⁄₁₀₀₀ sec | ISO 640 The life of a hummingbird is not easy. At only about an inch long, they are one of the most aggressive of all bird species. One has only to put out a few feeders in their yard to watch the bird's constant battles for the life-sustaining nectar they hold.

 

While going through some images captured this past August, I came across this classic example of their constant struggle. When I saw it, my first thought was that the Rufous Hummingbird flying backward was saying, "I surrender!" However, knowing these birds, I am sure it was just adjusting its position to re-attempt its pursuit of the feeder. 

 

Life can present us with times when we feel we need to surrender. Tormentors may try to intimidate us to prevent us from what we need. At times like that, holding tightly to faith and taking a step back to regroup before moving forward to persevere can be the best strategy. 

 

I remain his scribe.
