Hummer on Plant Stake #2 - Graphite Sketch

I've managed to complete the second sketch following my two favorite photographs shared a few posts back.  Out of literally 100s of photos taken in the course of one day, these two I've chosen to sketch are by far my all time favorites.

Again using the side of my pencil (4B) for most of the work and point for fine tuning and darkening in some areas.  I did use an 8B for the darkest part of the tail and for the darkest ring around the eye (not noted on sketch).

Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper, 6x6".  I really like the tooth on this paper!
