Nice shot of the aracari for BPW! I also enjoyed reading your recent posts on your Peru trip. Sounds like a wonderful experience!

Great shot and I love the painting.
I love the (supposed) simplicity of Chinese painting.

Definitely a painting. What beauty you find out there in the world!

Love it when birds meet art and vice versa! I like that word, "Aracari".

Great comparison! I love how shots of the wild can sometimes meld into pattern like that. -X
