Flying Jewels

Hummingbirds and Orchids, c. 1880 by Martin Johnson Heade, The Detroit Institute of Art.

Heade's renderings of orchids and hummingbirds (he did quite a few) make the flowers and the birds look more like jewels then natural living things. His colors jump off the canvas and demand your attention.
