“The “Hummingbird” is an extension of the “three bug problem”.The basic design produced by the “three bug problem” is modified by drawing only two sides of the triangle. This pattern is then mathematically manipulated into the desired position. Three different line widths, each with a different color, were plotted overlaying each other.”
