I really got a great bunch of photographs from my most recent trip to the National Aviary with my wife. Needless to say, they have been a huge inspiration in my pastel drawings. This is “Benito” the Hyacinth macaw that lives at the Aviary. He is almost ALWAYS putting on a show when I visit, hanging upside down, stretching his wings, making a racket, or grooming the other macaw.

This piece is 11×14”.

Original is SOLD
