The Lammergeier

I am fairly obsessed with birds, I'm afraid. For the last few weeks, I've been doing portraits of some of the raptors I've met at the Indiana Raptor Center in Nashville, Indiana. I think I've found one of my next subjects: The bearded vulture, or Lammergeier. It looks like it's wearing KISS face paint for crying out loud. How can I not illustrate it?

I'll be unveiling my first set of raptor portraits soon, so don't change that dial. Or at least, don't forget to change it back every once in a while.
