Beautiful work! How much time did it take?

Q: Why do hummingbirds hum?
A: Because they don’t know the words!

Do you sell them? I think there would be a good market.

I would love to see some tutorial videos on how you do this, including the painting. Your work is just amazing.

Very nice!!

We love Hummingbirds, it’s one of my favorites to carve.

Keep up the good work.

I think these humming birds are wonderful. I love them also in real life. I’ve mostly done a little chip carving and a few relief carvings but I really would like to try my hand at carving a bird. When they’re done right they are so realistic. You did a nice job on these.

Thanks everybody for the great comments, no I haven’t sold any, I have a hard time putting a price on them, I have probably about 10 hours in the Hummingbird, some of my projects take several days, thanks again
