Rainbow Bee-eaters


Looking back through last year's journal I came across a sketch and some photos of the Rainbow Bee-eater -Merops ornatus- from the Boondall Wetlands, last October. They are migrating birds that come here to breed for the summer. Probably they are now gone back north. Amazing colours and shapes, it was a pleasure to capture their beauty with watercolors..

  7. I really felt I was seeing these beautiful birds - and I love the way each continent seems to have its own colours. (And could I be really cheeky and ask you what typeface you use in your blog, when you have a moment). Thanks.

  8. Thanks for the comment Ann, the typeface I use is called Reenie Beanie, I chose it because it's the one that looks more similar to my hand writing..
