A wee male Ruby-Throated Hummingbird sits on a lilac branch.
Referenced from several of my own photos.

May I have permission to use this as wall art in a short student film I’m directing? You’ll of course receive proper credit and I can send you a link of the finished movie once it’s complete. Thanks in advance if you do want to participate!

Love his expression in this piece! I really enjoy watching hummers, we have several that visit our lilac bushes, and a gigantic rose of sharon bush in our yard. They are very territorial little birds!

I think a Ruby-throated humming bird is very festive for the holiday season indeed, as it combines the three most common colors of Christmas; red, green, and white. I also like how it also can be portrayed as a look to the new bright season and warmer times ahead as well as it sits on this lilac branch. I also can have to say for the colors and richness of details put in this pic as it did have your references to take inspiration from, very nice. :) :thumbsup:
