Last week I was enjoying a coffee break on my porch, watching the hummingbirds come to the feeder. I am so fascinated by them, their design, their speed, their colors, their tongue! So as I was watching this truly amazing creation of God, I decided to play with my camera. I did not know if the sports setting was fast enough but was delighted to find out that it stopped the action and I could actually see the feathers on the wings. Now I want a telephoto lens for close ups! Here are a couple shots and one is so similar to a digital image I have, I made up a card (any excuse, right?)
I used my Prisma pencils and added some Stickles on the green. These birds have truly amazing colors and some of them are so sparkly and glittery, they look like their feathers are made with a metallic material.
I had a hard time figuring out a layout because I really made the image too large, so here is to CAS. Fun to find the shiny ribbon in my stash and also some clear buttons - all to add to the mood of the amazing colors and delicacy of the bird.
Here are some challenges:
Paper Sundaes - things with wings
Sundays with Crissy - things with wings
Digital Tuesday - use something clear
Simon Says - CAS
Di's DigiDesign - Spring
Clearly i Stamp - what goes up must come down
Mema's - Bingo= blue, ribbon, bling
