Oh, I like this a lot

A savage predator indeed.Nice work Tessa.

To Heather and Jim, thanks for your comments.

Love the colours and the very bold stance Tessa.

Fabulous Tessa!

One of my favourite birds, very well painted Tessa.

I first encountered these birds when on holiday in Madeira. Twice a day one would come to the hotel with a handler to deter gulls and pigeons from swooping down and stealing your breakfast. The handler would send the bird for short flights then it was called back for a treat. Such beautiful birds. #harrishawk #hawk #birdpainting
