I just read another blog called, The Flying Mullet, that featured a list of the author's top ten new birds of 2009. That got me thinking about my own favorite new birds of this past year. It's too hard for me to list them in order, or to limit the number to only ten birds. All of my lifers this past year were seen in Peru in January and February. I managed to photograph some of them, and I posted those photos last summer. I'll include some of those photos in this post, and add some new photos.

One more small painting to bring with me to South Africa. It is an 8x10", mother and calf, Springbok. The painting looks alright but I continue to be frustrated by the digital photos of my paintings. The camera interprets what it sees, differently than the human eye sees. The actual paintings have much more natural tones, and greater detail.
