The Hummingbird is my all time favorite bird. You will see them in many of my paintings. They have a beauty and mystery and an unpredictability that intrigues me. The way they hover, fly backwards and dart every which way is amazing. Here’s one diving into a Hibiscus flower.
There are so many Snowy Plovers on my walks. They are an endangered species and every Spring, sections of the dunes are blocked off so that they can lay eggs and roost in peace. By the end of fall there are hundreds more running back and forth with the tides. Here’s proud mama with her chick.
