Sacramento is full of blooming camellias in the dead of winter–must be the reason why I see hummingbirds flitting about camellia trees despite the cold weather. Unfortunately, I don’t have any bird for this shot I took yesterday. Life is like that…falling short of perfection on a daily basis if, in fact, perfection is a worthy goal. I think it is sufficient enough to capture natural beauty intrinsically…getting it digitally is a more worldly pursuit. I digress.
