Immerse yourself in this beautiful wildlife painting. A little green bee-eater rests peacefully on a branch, blending in with the honey-yellow flowers. Despite its bright green body, this Asian green bee-eater is a master of camouflage and merges into the forest green background of this composition. Strokes of dark blue and yellow spread along its flight and tail feathers. A tinge of pale blue highlights its chin and throat, while a black line characteristic to the species marks the crimson eye. The long black bill is closed, resting. The bird looks directly at us, observing us as if it is a hardly captured fleeting moment. Better than a photograph ever could, this painting seizes the essence of the wildlife depicted, and there is a quiet and relaxed feel to this scene as if nothing could endanger the bird. The green background’s softness and the calm of the floral composition surrounding the little passerine contribute to a serene effect celebrating nature’s diversity, elegance, and harmony. This bird is mainly found in Asia and actively present in India, my motherland.
