World Environment Day...

Today is World Environment Day and following in Kimmie's ( footsteps... I present Audubon's Crested Cara Cara in pastels...

Polyborus plancus is a Threatened raptor that lives in open areas of southern Florida.  It is a carrion eater often seen on roadside fence posts along pasture lands.


  1. What an appropriate day to celebrate in light of all the trouble that is going on in the world-especially the gulf crisis. I"m so sad about that situation down there. We must treasure the world that we have.

  2. What a beautiful piece!!! I thought it was a photo at first!!!

  3. Oh what a beautiful creature! well done...
