Completed a half hour ago, the image is slightly shy of 17" x 13". I have my eye on this one for something special coming up. I've noted some question as to the species of bird, it's an Anhinga, sourced during my time on the west coast of Florida just a bit over a year ago. So far this year, I've dug into that great reference material for each of the four completed works since the beginning of the year. I guess the time lag since the trip has been good to rekindle the inspiration I felt while studying all these birds last January. Sometimes a little distance from the urgency of the moment can give you a slightly different perspective and open one up to avenues of design and composition not thought of at the time.

Good morning Terry! This is amazing. I was wondering about the expression on the bird, and now, well, the title is absolutely perfect!
