Connie has created a gorgeous hummingbird for a friend who gave her some recycled copper. His request was that she create a waybigo Texas size hummingbird for him.

I wasn't there to take photos of the creation, but she called me this morning and asked if I'd bring my camera over.

I took the photos and came home and put them on a slide show, then sent the link to Connie. I'm sure she won't mind me sharing it here with you folks.

The Hummingbird

A warning for dial up cubiteers:
The link above of the slide show does include a couple of short videos I took of him.

I put my hand up so you could get an idea of the size of this hummingbird. I have pretty big hands for a lady.

Not yet. No cell # and home phone was no answer or answering machine. I think he is behind the times. Hilarious! I'll have to try and catch him at home this evening.

What a neat hummingbird! But isn't that about the size of a mosquito in Texas?

HAHAHAHA Zany Sue, you are so correct. Don't you know that EVERYTHING'S bigger in Texas???


Though these days it seems that we've got these little bitty ones that aggravate us twice as much as the regular size mosquitoes.

Can't remember if I posted this or not, but Connie also made a yard bird that is pretty dern cool too.

The little ones must be California mosquitoes on vacation... we often send them off with one way tickets Big Grin

The yard bird is beautiful. I really like how graceful it looks.

So THAT'S where there's coming from. The bad thing about them is they do their damage before you even know they are on you.

Thanks Zany Sue! He's even more beautiful in person.

I'll bet he is! I wish I had money so I could send him a ticket to migrate to my place!

Thanks Zaney! The yard bird has another row of "feathers" now. Just didn't look fluffy enough. :) THe camera was on some strange setting when I took the pics of him. Didn't notice until I was downloading them then it was too dark to take more. Not the first time either...I was blaming the kids but now I think what is happening is it rolls the wheel to a different choice when I put it in it's case. I expect it to be where it was when I left it. AUTO. Hilarious!
Still no word from Tim. Guess I'll wait until he brings another load of loot and give the hummingbird to him then. In the mean time, I'll get to enjoy him, and then have to do me one when he leaves a void in the landscape.

Tim is sure to show up soon to take that beauty. It is so wonderful to see what you can do with the "loot". I am forever in awe of your creations.
