Hummingbird humbug

I was awake early one morning this summer and when I got up there was a heavy fog on the ground even though the sun was quite bright. As I walked past the flower bed I was entertained by a busy scene of bees and a male ruby throated hummingbird feeding at the bee balm patch.

This is my attempt at capturing the moment.

The drawing of the red bee balm just beat me up. Wow. Who would have thought a flower could be so hard to draw. I will come back to it ... later.

About the drawing

Quite happy with the hummingbird. And find most amusing the little fuzzy bee in the upper left, but …

The beebalm flower, yes that enormous red mass aka the scarlet blob, has beaten me. I’ve worked on that flower for over … arg. don’t want to think how many hours. Sheesh. Beaten by a flower. I’ll come back to it, some day.
