Nature Photography - Done Naturally

Costa's Hummingbird (Drawing)

Photo (OK...Image!) of the Week (September 17th, 2017)

(archive photos of the week here)

I've been in a major photographic funk. Part of it is just a general funk and stress. Part of it is that on the few times I have been out, I haven't gotten much for good photos. I thought perhaps 1) drawing again (for the first time since last New Year's Eve) might get me out of my funk, and 2) would give me an image I can use as my "photo" of the week. So, I had a pleasant afternoon, listening to the baseball game while drawing one of my favorite hummingbird species, a Costa's Hummingbird. Not one we get (normally) up in South Dakota, but one I've seen on many occasions during our trips to Arizona.
