Another bird nest painting, I wanted to do a hummingbird with chicks in the nest. This is the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, the female of which does not have the ruby throat.
Last Summer when I was visiting my parents these hummingbirds were quite active at the feeder. I was just dying to see a nest, I probably spent hours staring at tree branches trying to locate one and closely watching the birds but to no avail. In this nest I used crochet flowers and bits of lace, in addition to "microbeads" which ad a lovely sparkle in person but unfortunately not a detail that can be seen on the computer. I have added this to my shop here.
