Drawing hummingbird in simple steps.

Did you know that hummingbirds are the only bird that can fly backward? This beautiful little hummingbird is distinguished by their long, narrow beaks and swiftly beating wings. Their name comes from the unusual quality of being able to fly quickly and the humming sound made by the beating of their wings. Hummingbirds can fly as quickly as the wind, making it challenging to observe them in person. Most of us have probably only ever seen hummingbirds in photographs on the internet.

This time, let’s connect the head and the body by sketching the neck of the hummingbird. To draw the neck, just simply draw a slanting line from the lower side of the head going down to the body. Then, do the same on the other side.
