This afternoon I finally managed to finish, Lonesome Lake, 12x16". The painting may or may not be any good, but it does look better in life than this photo indicates.
Another photo in different light.
I will flesh out this post with a few photos of Lake Victoria in Uganda. Lake Victoria is the source of the Nile River. These are mostly Whiskered Terns in Entebbe.
I'm pretty sure that this is a Wood Sandpiper.
A Common Greenshank.
Spur-winged Lapwings and Black-winged Stilts.
A somber looking, African Openbill Stork.
Sacred Ibis and an Egyptian Goose in the middle. Sacred Ibis were revered in ancient Egypt where they are now extinct. They are certainly common in Uganda.
A Scuacco Heron in Mabamba Swamp near Entebbe.
A Purple Heron at the same place.
Best of all, a Shoebill also in the Mabamba Swamp. Uganda is the best place to see this very rare bird.
