A Minnesotan has created a "Hummer Helmet" that suspends a hummingbird feeder in front of his face. Ken thought, what a great idea for sketching these birds.
I think he's right.
So that got me thinking, have you ever done anything weird, odd, or off-beat to attract a wild sketching subject? (Of course I'm talking about fauna.) Do you sit in deer stands and wait to capture the deer on paper? Do you go out in a boat and sit on a pond and watch the bird world go by? I'd love to hear about it.
But even if your sketching life is rather tame and without contraptions check out this little video to see how this inventor came up with a way to get up close and personal with these fabulous birds.
