Hummingbird (Ruby-throated) Drawing Lesson

About This Animal  

Ruby-throated hummingbirds are just 3 inches tall. They have a long, thin bill for collecting nectar. Their feet are small and made for perching, not walking. They spend most of their time flying and hovering while they collect nectar. Their wings beat so fast when they are flying that you cannot see them with your eyes. Draw a hummingbird step by step.
