The Bird of Paradise for the underwing reminds me of something. A month ago or so, Harold asked how much he should pay for a peacock skin. You replied something to the effect that the bird was too beautiful to be killed just for it's feathers. I kind of rolled my eyes at your reply. The reason being is I've been hunting and fishing most of my life and I've killed many things for their meat, their fur, their feathers, or a combination of the 3. I've always felt that if you killed something for "purpose" then that animal's death is just.

 

Well the point of all this is I was watching one of the episodes of the "Planet Earth" mini-series on the Discovery channel and they show the mating rituals of 2 species of Bird of Paradise. Till then I'd never seen these birds before and their beauty really blew me away. I thought about it and I doubt I could kill one of them for their feathers. No fly could do their beauty justice.

 

Then here we have another Guidry masterpiece and I think you have done one of the planet's most beautiful bird's beauty justice. :headbang:

 

It's all kinda ironic, huh? :lol:
