Black-naped Orioles


Black-naped Orioles A small corner of an illustration done for a stamp proposal, a long time ago. The theme was " Bird found in Singapore". Had a hell of time drawing those feathers on the wing . ha

I had a really close encounter with the yellow Black-naped Oriole today. It flown away before I could take a pix of it. =) This was the first time I have seen it so up close. Beautiful bright bird, the size of a Myna. They are really hard to be missed.

There are a pair of "resident" Oriole at my neighbourhood. It always a joy to see them flying from tree to tree. But as always, they are too fast and too far to be captured on cam.

绿禾,
对呀,是我画的。
通常,邮政局会找三四个设计师来proposed新邮票的样子。而这一套,我“败”给了一位资深的画家。=)所以它不在市面上。

小叶子,
我请鸟儿吃星巴克咖啡豆哦! 哈~~
