Hummingbird Feeders

This month's Patreon 3D Model Archive release brings us a simple collection of hummingbird feeders, from traditional, to recycled, to fancy blown glass! It was a bit of a whimsical thing to take on this month. I'd had a request before for hummingbird feeders, but it was difficult to settle on a design. There was a traditional one, of course, but I wanted something more than that. In the end, I settled on making an additional one in the same design (but an unconventional material), a recycled bird feeder, and a slightly more upscale one that would cost a bit more in the store.

The only thing I regret a bit is that I didn't explore more bird feeder designs, because some of them are truly gorgeous, but I reached a point where I felt I could safely call the project "done" and something I could come back to at a later time. Other projects await, and coming back to this one will make a happy break later on!
