Red-Breasted Sapsucker # 44

The weather here has been beastly hot, and so I finally have a chance to stay indoors and paint. It is hard keeping up with everything as this time of year.

Sapsuckers are known for a unique behavior, they drill little holes in trees and suck sap. I was delighted to find this one about three weeks ago. Watercolor painted from my photo on Strathmore #140 cold press.

I have seen these and find it so interesting and unique for this bird to attract his dinner this way. I really like this Elva. YOu always capture their personality so well.
