American Kestrel

An early morning with an azure blue sky and the first hint of frost on the grass. These two flickers were hopping around on this telephone pole with great enthusiasm. I really liked the graphical quality of the scene with the pole, wires, and mechanical parts contrasting with the tree and the flickers themselves.

Flickers seem to have an amazing ability to adopt man-made structures into their habits, especially when they begin hammering away on the aluminum vent pipes on your roof! It must be like owning a megaphone for a flicker, akin to standing on the rooftop and yelling, "Hey, world I'm over here!"

This open edition drawing is available an 11"x14" frame size and is printed with archival, pigment-based inks on 100% cotton rag fine art paper.
