The Great Egret is a native bird of Texas and apparently he likes my car. Twice I've caught one standing on my car, when there are plenty of other rooftop options all around. I'm not supersticious but I've been told to take it as a good omen—ok, I'll take it! Ever since then I've been wanting to illustrate something with this beautiful bird and last night inspiration (and a bit of free time!) hit. I called it The Perfect Pair.
The rainy day and fear of scaring it away makes for a blurry photo, but you get the idea. They are so beautiful (and big!) up close!
