A few weeks ago, I had a request from Karen & Gary to create an Anna's Hummingbird with Bird of Paradise. Initially I started out with a hummingbird perched on the flower, but K&G corrected me, saying they had never seen them land. I loved to watch hummingbirds when I lived in California, but we don't have hummingbirds in Hawaii. So now I am not so familiar with their behavior. Anyways, I created K&G's painting "Flying In Paradise" and it was so much fun that I had to do one more- similar, but not the same. "I'm Sweet On You" features a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird with the BoP and he hasn't reached the nectar yet. He's taking that quick pause, assessing the situation, before swooping in for a quick lunch.
