Humming Bird Butterfly

by Steven John Koeppe - Acrylic on Burlap, 20" x 40"
A work in progress, June 19, 2017

While hiking Temescal Canyon recently a fellow hiker asked whether I had ever heard of a humming bird butterfly. I said no I hadn't and she explained how it could hover while feeding on nectar with its long probiscus. It sounded pretty cool. Just as we were ending our hike she pointed toward a large bunch of lupin blossums. As several hovered there feeding I managed to use my camera and flash to capture a closeup of this fascinating creature. The outside wings are stationary as its tiny wings underneath allow it to hover and move like a humming bird. To see the photo I am working from CLICK HERE.
