Kookaburra mugshot

Laughing kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae). Atelier acrylics. 10 x 12 inches. Kookaburras are such hilarious creatures - not only because of the cackling calls they make. They have a lot of character, especially when you observe them in family groups, and when they're looking for a bite to eat! This fellow was posing for his mugshot.
