Very nice, Wyobud. Why do you call it 'desert canary;??

Nice little buro. The first time I've ever seen a single portrait of these charming creatures. Nice painterly treatment.

You may like to take a look at the way you captured the spreading of the ears compared to the uppermost clouds. The same shape is emulated.

Thanks for the look Diane an excellent point that I missed. Much appreciated.

Sumafra in "Burro Country" the stillness is often fractured by the God-awful braying of the ass. The old timers will tell you that it was the song of the Desert Canary.

Beware of oldtimers------the Burros are safe
