Here's a piece I made for a friend that had lost her Father just before Fathers Day 2015. His was a mechanic, his fave bird was the hummingbird, and fave flower the sunflower.

Of course I would've like to have spent a few more hours on it had it not been for a deadline. :D

I like the use of the wire wheels for the flower, and that you twisted the sunflower stalk.  Hummingbird looks good. Nice work, I'm sure your friend will love it.

Great use of the wire wheel. I keep all my worn out wheels but never thought of the flower idea. 

Nice bird. You have obviously forged the head, knife blades for wings and the ever-handy spark plug body. Tail looks like the handle of a spoon. Some very careful welding there. Well done!
