Oh yes, it is time! Time to share what me and my little Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook got up to while in Disney's Animal Kingdom:
Wild Anhinga spotted on the river, a duck (Pochard?), and a really cool plant.
More abstract studies of another Anhinga.
On the subject of birds, there is a new presentation at Dinoland USA that features live birds, is essentially a sequel to my beloved Flights of Wonder, and matter-of-factly presents birds as a kind of dinosaur. This... okay, Dinoland still makes me drink heavily, but this is a very nice change for the better. More like this, please.
Flights of Wonder is still awesome and I finally got to sit in the "I'm glad I am wearing a hat" seats. Only thing is, I thought I'd heard that the show had finally received a rewrite, but it seems essentially the same. I tell you, the Dr. Guano story is getting as taxing as Little Red back in the day.
The Komodo Dragon was surprisingly spry, and the Lion Macaques are a new addition.
A graceful Tree Monitor, a handsome Jungle Fowl, and a Mystery Bovine! (All Ears identifies it as a Banteng, while the Cast Member I asked called it a Water Buffalo. Either way, nice model.)
An Argus Pheasant and Crowned Pigeon...
...and some studies from my Safari photos.
Bonus: A Limpkin I met at the Boardwalk docks...
And a surprisingly graceful Manatee at the Living Seas.
