Blooming Tuesday - Cattail with Yellow-headed Blackbird

This Yellow-headed Blackbird is sitting on top of a cattail that is in bloom. It is almost going to seed actually.  Happy Blooming Tuesday to all.

What a gorgeous blackbird! Basking in the sun (now that yesterday's snow has melted)!

I have never seen this kind of blackbird and have always wanted to. They look so interesting. You did a great job on it!

Do you work from photographs or from nature when you do your animal and bird pictures? This is another good painting.

Vibrant! I can feel the sun here. Yellow heads are always more colorful than I remember - we see a few here.

Hi Lisa.....I love the blackbird.....you have a great talent but do tell me, when do you find time to paint? I can remember my Grandfather painting and a piece would take ages to produce......
