I have loads of pictures waiting to be posted but still haven't got the time to finish a post. I've been busy working on raptor illustration, finishing a graduate school application and learning how to drive. Oh, and not to forget, birding! I've been going out to my local patch every morning for almost a week now. It's been really productive. In fact, too productive that I still can't get myself around working on the photos I took. After coming back to Thailand, I finally finished my 2010 sketchbook. Last week, I took the time sewing, gluing and painting a cover for my new hand made sketchbook. Spoon-billed Sandpiper was the species that came into my mind while I was thinking of a cover bird. I painted the bird in its full breeding plumage, a plumage which I still haven't seen before. I'll be visiting a couple of places in the Gulf of Thailand in few days. Hopefully, I'll be able to find one of these spoonies in breeding plumage like I've already painted on my sketchbook cover.
