Blue-tailed Bee Eater

2010.6.14 Blue Tailed Bee EaterThis bird is so beautifully colored, and I love the expressiveness of his eyes and beak. But you have to wonder why I would choose to draw a bird with such a descriptive name, and NOT include the described body part. Funny, I think I did that with the other Bee Eater I drew. Yup, sure did.
