I needed to come and print some photos of the hummingbird nest I am working on, so I can manage the details accurately. Here are a few glimpses of the samples that I am working from. One looks a lot like a pipe, to me. The other is more of the nest (the one in the box...which is too fragile to take out of the box) with the hummingbird eggs.
I am excited to get back to class and work from the real thing. I plan to take more photos as I wasn't too thrilled with these.
|This photo is actually turned around|
from the way I am drawing it....but it gives
me enough clues to work with the drawing that
I have started..... doesn't it look like a pipe?
|This nest is about 3 inches across.|
the eggs are about 1.5 mm...just tiny.
The details on this nest are much more to
my liking, so I will incorporate
some of these details in my 'pipe nest'
