I can never pass up the opportunity to sketch a kingfisher.  This one perched on a thin driftwood branch which was hanging over shallow water along the Coquille River, less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean.  He was back lit; patiently looking for his supper as the day came to a close.


  1. I never seem to be able to get close enough to these guys! Lovely...

  2. Love this Elva. Would love to see one of these around here.

  3. Great rendition, Elva. They have such personalities! The last one I saw was a speck, but we could hear him clearly from across the slough.
