Nesting Dispute

Color Photograph

Created by Melinda Moore
Rated 5 based on 1 customer reviews
Two striking pink Roseate Spoonbills were starting a nest when a Great White Egret tried to interfere. Both birds have huge wing spans of about 50 inches, so it was a wonderful drama to witness. Luckily the spoonbills won the dispute and settled down to start a family.

Moore used an old fashioned technique of ''burning'' to darken the background which heightens the drama of the white feathers. Companion piece titled The Bride goes nicely as a set.

Captured with a high quality digital camera. The print was made on fine art heavy cotton rag paper with archival pigment inks which produce a rich an realistic print that will last indefinitely. It is titled, numbered, signed, and dated below the image. Limited edition of 100 for each size.
