Gourmet Trumpet Vine
Hummingbird on Trumpet Vien
Northwest Elbert County, Colorado
The carpet trumpet vine grows about 12-15 inches off the ground with profuse blooms. It is a gourmet smorgasbord for the broad-tailed hummingbird but not so much for photographers. The background is cluttered and distracting so I used the natural colors of the environment to digitally paint the background.
