REDDISH EGRET Egretta rufescens #2 (NOT A PHOTOGRAPH OR PHOTOMANIPULATION)

DilettantO

QUINNS ROCKS, Australia

Artist's Description

Digital painting created using Corel Painter v X for a WWF First Day Cover envelope.
This piece incorporates an earlier piece done for the issue for Montserrat seen here.
Stamp version

This was done to show both color morphs. The adult ‘dark’ morph, with the reddish head and slate grey body is shown in the foreground, while in the background the adult white morph is seen, having no reddish plumage at all. To complicate things even more, the juveniles have brown plumage all over. Maybe it should have been called the ‘Occasional Reddish Egret’…
