I was lucky enough to see a male and female Ruby-throated Hummingbird in a garden in north New Hampshire. They were feeding on a flowering shrub and presumably returning to a nearby nest site on the edge of the woodland bordering the garden.
The sketches were completed from photographs that I took at the time, and due to the intense heat over here I declined to use watercolours and used coloured pencils instead. I think I may have said before, but I really like the way that the pencils lend themselves to sketches of birds.
More details of the Hummingbirds and other species that I have sketched, can be found on the Swanwick Lakes Art Project blog at:
