Purple Gallinule

Little Blue

I think this Little Blue Heron has the goofiest expression.  Or is it just me?

Give Me an S, Give Me an S. Give Me an S. S. S.

Barred Owl

I would so love to find an owl in the wild, have the right lens, the right light, have the owl sitting out in the open without any obstructing limbs and remain perfectly motionless for at least 5 minutes.  Until that happens  (ha), I can only go to places like Homassasa Springs State Park where rehabbing owls are behind mesh wire.  I liked the pose, but because the quality was poor due to the wire (and poor light) I used a heavy dose of Topaz Impressions to turn it into a somewhat acceptable painting.
