Beautiful bird and flowers (tiger lilies?) and I dig the grassy backdrop as well.  Hummingbirds are relatively uncommon where I live, so, I tend to mistakenly think they're giant insects for a moment or two when I do happen to come across one!

Thank you!  Flowers are our Texas native "Standing Cypress" (not actually a cypress).

How gorgeous! The flowers are from a cypress? They look like orange trumpet vine blossoms, I love those. Very nicely done, the seed stitching is a wonderful evolution in your work.

You've really captured those amazing birdies! May I ask how large yours is? With nothing for scale, to my eye it looks larger than the hummers around here by quite a bit and which gives it a magnifying glass feel that I really like.
