Patience is a Virtue

There is something so very majestic about these enormous birds. They move so gracefully, watch patiently for their meal, and if they fail they try, try again. I work near the water and often see these beauties take their long walk for lunch while I enjoy my pre-made one.
The main flower used for the heron is blue hydrangea. The detail is dark dahlia and orange rose petal. The mountains are hydrangea leaves and the ground is fig leaf. For the water I used delphinium. The marshy islands are made up of orange rose petal, grass-on endings, and pieces of pampas grass tussock. Lastly, the sun is a yellow dahlia.
Prints of the original are availble here:
