Spring, European Bee-eater, Lia

European Bee-eater on their way back from Africa to the Danube, where it will spend spring and summer. It's a very rare bird one will not find easily. So I drew it from a photo.


  1. Lovely color and texture in the feathers. Nicely done!

  2. Lovely painting Lia, you got the colour and the feather detail so well. Wish we had these birds over here.

  3. Thank you, Joan and Ann! It's one of our most colourful birds in Austria.

  4. This bird is fat and sassy! So colorful and you got the feather details well drawn too!
