I painted this mostly en plein air at Howard Park, Tarpon Springs, FL. I went to the same location for two weeks to work on it. The three little ibis(es?) came along while I was painting the scene so I quickly sketched them and also took a photo. It's hard to paint wildlife that are moving right along! Later in my studio I added the birds and some finishing touches. I'm happy with the way I caught the light and shade. This painting is currently on view at the Downtown Gallery, New Port Richey FL.
