Bombycilla Garrulus

A very quick study in PS of a graceful and happy bird (Bohemian Waxwing) often visiting our garden.
It is called Sidensvans, Silk tail, in Swedish, and is very much found of Rowan (Sorbus) berries.
I took several photos of this bird, but the quality was always very low because of the zoom, so I wanted to paint a more detailed picture.

Thank you again :)
This is a really quick stuff. The leaves are just a couple of brush strokes, for instance. I want to paint as much as possible now, in a few months it will be more difficult.
