Hummingbird (Design by Gregory Knesner)

This is an intermediate model of a Hummingbird from the book by Robert Harbin – Origami 4. This book, might I add, is a very old and rare book, which is now difficult to obtain. A friend of mine sent this to me sometime ago and I thought of trying this model out, from it.

As with most of Harbin’s books, only the main steps or instructions are used and each of these are a combination of successive simple steps. It takes a bit of getting used to and makes even the simple models look a tad bit complicated.

For this particular hummingbird, I used construction paper of A4 size cut down into a square sized sheet of about 9” or so. I am not all too pleased with the manner in which the wings of the hummingbird turned out, but that’s the best I could do with it, after half on hour of struggling. 🙂

My guess is that this book by Robert Harbin, is no more in print and the design might not be on the Internet, too. I have come across many designs for the hummingbird, but I liked this one the best of all.

Maybe the next time I try it, there will be an improvement on the wings 😀
