More inspiration from older works

Here’s another oldie from my collection!  This Kingfisher was copied from a photo in an encyclopaedia (if I remember correctly).

I’ve only ever seen a Kingfisher once before in the wild, they’re extremely timid, and very very tiny!  I only caught a flash of blue as we drove past a river, but there it was sitting atop a bulrush.  It made my day!

The body is a bit “meh” – but his little face, beak and that fish he’s caught, I love!
