I asked my wife once if I were to model something for her, what would she want. She told me a hummingbird. At the time, I had been thinking of a charm for a necklace or something along those lines. After I had learned how to do some low poly modeling, I happen to think of that idea, and thought that it would make a cool image. I added a textured background, but blurred it out with depth of field to simulate the way that these are often photographed.
