028: Birds of Paradise


So these birds are INSANE. I can't get over their incredible plumage and sweet dance moves. You should do yourself a favor and watch some videos of them when you get a change. So gorgeous. And weird!  There are many different species, and I drew the "Greater" ones. There are the Superb, Blue, Red, etc. ones, all totally different and pretty.

  1. Those are crazy! Some of those "dances" are pretty terrifying too, I can't imagine how the females are turned on by them! Haha.
    I've seen some of the Planet Earth series before but not this one. David Attenborough's got another brilliant series on at the moment in the UK- "Africa".
    Beautiful pictures as always :)
