Another bird for the series...




When I got to this point, I thought I was done, but as I looked at it, I realized that I didn't like the total sky  background. It was lifeless, and oddly drab in a way.  

Unfortunate in many ways, because I've already made up ten of these backgrounds in preparation for more birds. Alas - they'll have to be used for something else. But in the meantime, this bird needed to be cut out and put on a different background.

Shall we audition some? 



  

maybe...

  >

although I like the one on the left, there's so much going on back there
 that you can hardly focus on the bird; so, no...


  

more promising...

  

too much pink, and not enough going on... so...



Ta da!




and here's a close up of all those teeny tiny feathers...

Yes, love the feathers; agree about the background; still bowled over by the artistry of the branch!

As they say in Maine, "He's cunnin". Just love the plumage and the chartreuse bits!!
