The Overlook

  1. pic of bird in bronze

In searching for something different in expressing a Kingfisher I have brought in two elements. The first is the idea of a low perch, not commonly noted among this species. The bird can sit “low”, see disturbance in water surface, then fly to a height and plummet or skim the water and make a short, abrupt dive for its quarry. The second thrust was to create a tension by inserting a small frog under the bird to invite speculation on the viewer’s part, a kind of juxtaposition. Of course, it is not a fish, but then Kingfishers will take what is available.
