Hummingbird Kaleidoscopes

Good things come to those who wait!  I finally completed my hummingbird kaleidoscopes.  I ended up with four differnt kaleidoscopes.  I have been working on getting just the right photo and creating the kaleidoscopes for about a month  now and I am thrilled with my results.  Right now they are only available at Bad Cat Creations and I will debut them at Ely's Harvest Moon Festival September 10, 11 and 12th. 

I will post pictures of my hummingbirds soon.

Take care,

I am determined to get the ultimate hummingbird photo to create a kaleidoscope.  I have a few shots that I like but what to spend a few more days on getting shots. 

I am pretty sure I have a good shot of the pileated woodpecker, a mother feeding her baby, and a few other wildlife shots.  I hope to be able to share my new work with you soon.

Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

Take care,
