PostSubject: The birds of Africa and India   Sun Nov 14, 2010 4:40 am

Hello All,
I have been busy the last few weeks and though I have posted a few replies and a new post on the new trees Danny has sent me I have not really been active on the site because of some really great personal time with some friends.

Anyway, Ana's bird sculptures arrived along with a pr of Southern Ibis from Danny and I took some photos of all of my birds and I wanted to share them here. I have birds from several sources, some I made myself, some are Japanese toy figures, a few are from stores and I painted them to match species that are native to South Africa or india, most are from Danny and the newest ones are from Ana. All of you have seen Ana's sculptures and you know how spectacular they are so I took several photos of those and chose the best ones I could take.

Here are Ana's palm nut vultures and one of the two bearded vultures she made, I didn't take a photo of the flying one yet as I have to set up his lines to make him "fly".

Here are the ones I got from Danny, the first you have all seen, they are wreathed hornbills from India

Here is the African ground hornbill. He is deciding if he can take one of the yellowbacked duikers in the diorama

This is the new pr of Southern Bald ibis I just got last week from Danny, I have been looking forward to this pr since I found out that there was a pr for sale.

Finally these photos are of all different sources, there are some wattled cranes, saddlebilled storks, saras cranes and a pr of fulvous whistling ducks, some are store bought, others are models and the ducks I made myself.
