Humming

with Energy (Current Conservation)

I illustrated an article titled 'Humming with Energy' for Current Conservation, an ecology- and science-related magazine. The article details the field experiences of

National Geographic Explorer Anusha Shankar, who - for her PhD - studied how American and Ecuadorian hummingbirds manage their limited energy.
