My Texas Trumpeter Trio painting features hummingbirds feeding on a Creeping Trumpet Vine. The Creeping Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), also known as trumpet creeper, is a fast-growing perennial vine. They are often found crawling up the trunks of the local coastal oaks in the Rockport, Texas, area. Their bright yellow and orange flowers are popular with hummers or hummingbirds.
The hummingbirds in this piece are a male Allen's (Selasphorus sasin)hummer in the foreground, a female Ruby Throated (Archilochus colubris) hummer in the middle ground who is busy dipping her beak into the trumpet flower and a male Ruby Throated hummingbird waiting his turn in the background. If you look closely you might see a small bit of yellow pollen on the Allen's beak as he has obviously been busy feasting on the nectar of these beautiful flowers.
