“Migration” 18×24″ acrylic on canvas.

I’d like to thank Mr. Mike Shaw for the generosity he extended me the past fall migration season. He was kind enough to lend me his pair of Zeiss 8×42 binoculars for the entire season. As a young biologist, I cannot afford luxuries like these binoculars. My ability to effectively document the migration to the up most accuracy was directly aided with this pair. For his kindness, I painted a scene of a migrating adult Red-tailed Hawk as I might have seen it through the lens. Thanks again Mike. I hope you enjoy this scene as much as I enjoyed my season.
