Blackmoon

Oil, 4 x 4 inches

I’m quite taken by the toughness and tenacity of the male, Red-winged Blackbird. Have you seen this bird's aerial karate when chasing away predators like hawks or eagles five times its size? Perhaps you’ve gotten dive-bombed by one protecting its nesting territory. If an expression about humans could apply to this bird, it would be “Good men are plenty, but strong men are few.”
