Sparkling Violet-ear

Common Name: Sparkling Violet-ear
Scientific Name: Colibri coruscans
Exhibit: Butterfly Garden
Medium: Colored Pencil
Date finished: November 11, 2009
Observation: Okay, I know I have drawn this same hummingbird before, but when I took a picture of him taking a bath I just couldn't help but draw him again. This time though I drew him with much more detail. The last picture I had to guess on the colors a bit because the photo turned out kinda dark, but this time he was in full light and I think my camera also flashed giving his feathers the extra golden color. Comparing the two pictures I find that I like this one much better.
