Veneration to the Sun by Nambroth Veneration to the Sun by Nambroth
A group of Whooper Swans (cygnus cygnus) pay homage to the life-giving sun. I have attempted to honor the beauty and grace of these wonderful birds by panting them enjoying the last amber rays of sunset.

This was one of my entries to the Share One Planet competition. [link]
I only found out about the competition last week, so many hours of sleep were set aside in order to complete this in time. :)

Digitally painted with Corel Painter: Oil pastel and acrylic tools (using traditional methods)

References: Many of my own photos of tundra swans, and Special thanks and credit goes to Andy Hartley and William Symington for allowing me to use their swan photos to help pose a few of the flapping birds!
