Hummingbird (drawing) by Quelchii Hummingbird (drawing) by Quelchii
Traditional drawing of a hummingbird (Green-crowned brilliant - Heliodoxa jacula). It was fun to draw all these iridescent feathers (too bad my scanner messed up the colours and the contrast a bit...)! It could be a bit better, but I gave up drawing all these feathers properly after a while. ^^;

I LOVE hummingbirds! I actually have caught one similar to this. I like to stand right in front of my feeder outside and watch them. It is so cool to see them fly down and drink right in front of my face!

you should petition to have them imported :D

I  loved to watch them dart in and around the feeders. They turn my front yard into an airshow at times.

if you pulled that drawing off fro a picture or illustration alone i am raising my opinion of the drawing a notch or two.

occasionally one will loose a feather when sparring with another bird or naturally so I had a chance to examine them up close. ( although finding one is sheer luck)some of the feathers are almost translucent, when the sun catches them just right they can be iridescent.....and that is spectacular. you did a good job of catching  that with the drawing.

Lol! :D

In our yard are just some sparrows, tomtits, redstarts,...

I admit that it was not easy to draw these iridescent feathers, but I really like challenges! ;)
Thanks again!
