Watercolour sketch on Bockingford 300gsm
A beautiful little Black Wattle tree at the bottom of our plot (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa). It’s ear-marked for eradication – such a pity, he’s young and already has beautiful form. Quite a few sprung up again after the last clean-up.
The dead tree will stay – the Fiscal Shrike absolutely loves it! From here she surveys her surrounds and regularly pounces on something hiding in the grass.
