Spring Rufous

Spring Rufous  4" x 4" acrylic 
While hiking locally along McDowell Creek, I heard the rapid whir of  wings and found this rufous hummingbird feeding on freshly budding flowers.  These aggressive hummingbirds will chase all other hummingbirds out of their area and have been known to even harass chipmunks if they are disturbing their nests.  Creating an elegant, sculptural quality to this painting was my goal so I kept the composition simple.
