Broad-billed Motmot in Panama
Acrylic on canvas
Original is painting sold, but prints are available
24 x 18"
I had a very intimate experience with this Broad-billed Motmot while hiking in the rainforest in Panama. The bird was very tame and confiding, and I followed it about as it hunted, sometimes having to back up so that I could fit its long tail in the frame as I took photos. Something about the unexpectedness of the encounter, and the pleasant, curious demeanor of the bird, made me realize how much I just worship these angelic birds.
