Hummingbird Feet

I'm constantly looking at hummingbird's feet in my own photos and in those of others.


I I did this sketch today from my friend, Jennifer MacNeill's, photo taken this month here at Hummer Land. I just loved how this hummer is perched on the end of the shepherd's hook. Often their feet look weird, almost deformed in pictures. Here Jen was able to capture the true strength and character of this little dynamo's tootsies, talons and all. Thanks for your permission to use this shot as reference Jennifer!
