Suck It Up
Photograph - Photographic Artworks
This artwork is derived from a photograph taken June 5/12 in Cuenca, Ecuador, South America from my bedroom office window. Note the tongue extended right into the nectar liquid.
I spend hours watching and waiting for these fascinating creatures, called a Sparkling Violetear, no fatter than my thumb, to fly up and entertain me. I had been moving the feeder closer and closer, and it is now inside the window about 15� and they continue to come in the house for their dinner.
Then this little guy, who I have now named Tom Thumb, has graduated to eating from my hand. See http://youtu.be/hQEkObLN9Ag
