Heliotrope and Hummingbird

Beautiful Heliotrope in the garden, daisies growing up through the greenery and a hummingbird has spied those lovely purple flowers.
The floral background was taken in my garden in Southern Oregon
The Hummingbird was added as a composite. I also added a texture and erased from the center of the image to give a more dimensional effect.
This image was processed in Nik Color Efex Pro and Vivezia and I used the Photoshop filter Craqlure to give a painted and embossed effect.
