After taking a snapshot of a hummingbird in flight off my back porch, I decided to try and paint one. Looked out of place by itself, so I rescued an old painting that didn't work, and came up with this.
LOL... I went to great pains to paint the wings in motion......not realizing that when I downsized them to proper size - nobody could see them... :):)
so, I left a couple a little larger so at least a hint of the wings would show... LOL..

ANd they are such a nice, cute and sweet and well painted barney. You've done well that you painted them. Never saw one in real life, so at least yours are the closiest i could see of them this summer.:)

Thank you... Hopefully you will get the opportunity to see a few sometime. They are really fun to watch.

I love it. The birds are great. I'm glad you decided to keep the little birdie and then multiply!

Wow, the little birds are an added bonus to this painting. I like the way you painted the tree leaves as well. Nice work!

They're such aggressive little rascals that a party of this size would be more like a brawl. :D

Isn't that the truth?? They really do defend their territory don't they? :):)
