I took a little longer today to get my blog entry posted. After a most delicious dinner last night at Maeva and Elton's, I needed a couple hours this morning to recoup:)
A big thanks to the Weiske family for selecting "We Are Family" (hummingbird family painting) to bring home with them!
I promised the Weiskes and myself that I'd make more Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds, so here we are! This little guy looked like he could use a good meal to keep him plump. We don't have hummingbirds in Hawaii, but when I lived in California, they'd always dive bomb our nectar bushes in the front yard. I didn't realize how aggressive they can be around their food source until my mom hung a feeder. Hummingbirds would come from all over and sword fight with their beaks to lay claim to the giant feeder. I'd always think, "Come on guys! Can't we all just get along?"
Well, at least this little one found his own spot for supper!
Original painting will be available at Genesis Gallery Hawaii. Contact information is on my website: www.ktoart.com/galleries /galleries.html
