Australian Spoonbill Bird Illustration

Digital illustration / artwork of Australian birds, Royal Spoonbills by contemporary artist Diavma (Di Mathews) of Hexagonal Mandala. This art image is created by painting directly onto the computer using a pressure sensitive pen and an electronic drawing tablet.  The image is then printed on 11.5 x 16.5 inch high quality artist paper. These prints are the artists signed and numbered originals created within the artist's studio.

This is a wildlife illustration of royal spoonbills (Platalea regia) also known as the black-billed spoonbill.
These birds hang out on a little island in the center of a pond at the local aged nursing home in NSW Australia. During the breeding season, it has a distinctive crest, which can be up to 20 cm long in male birds (usually shorter in females)... pretty awesome hair style.
