5 x 7"
oil on panel

I was in the mood for something calm to paint yesterday and the horizontal stripes of grey-blue caught my eye and I zoomed in on these cool birds.  It took time to find out just what kind of birds are in the foreground - they are the North American version of the Lesser Crested Tern, which is primarily African, called the Royal Tern.  How cool.

From Hilton Head Island during low tide, two Royal Terns mingle with other shore birds.
