Steve it seems we're both on the same wavelength here. (Nice one)
Similar but with a texture and simple frame.

This is one of those images that I had trouble making look like anything I was happy with. So I just did a quick diffuse and let it go at that.

Thank you much. I tried several things but this was the only one that I was really happy with.

Re: O Say Can You See...

Here's the majestic bird done in Painters liquid ink with outlines.
Just read a bird story in the paper that was both sad and interesting. The storms that recently swept through central Florida killing 20 people also killed the flock of Whooping Cranes that winter in Florida. Well turns out that one survived - Number 615 . This is the same one that on the flight down in December, following the ultralight, turned around and headed back north. He was rounded up eventually and rejoined the group heading south. Today humans dressed as giant whooping cranes are out to round up number 615 once again. ( Well this is the land of the KKK after all.) The headline was "Maverick crane survives." - maybe it pays to be a little different??
MargaretM
PS The humans are dressed as cranes so as not to accustom the birds to humans.
I got so wrapped up in this tale I nearly forgot to attach my image.

Re: O Say Can You See...

Lovely rendition, Margaret!

Thanks also for sharing the info about the surviving crane - I'd read the original story about them all being killed in the tornado (along with about 20 people), and it's good to hear about survival in the midst of devastation -- like that baby some years ago that was found unharmed in a tree after a deadly tornado.

Re: O Say Can You See...

Everyone is doing such a great job on this bird. Really nice work folks. I haven't seen any collages/montages, however. And I thought some enterprising person would have taken on that challenge by now.

Keep up the good work all.

Janet

The eagle has landed. But not on the moon this time.
