Zebra Finch visit blue Vanda orchids

While not common as in some other locations, families of visiting 'Zebs' make a focal point in our district. The arrival of this pair coincided with the blooming of our favourite orchid, a blue Vanda. Utterly remarkable. A memorable moment. The photograph was so-so. I began a sketch. It waited for months for me to finish the background. Until today when I realised there was little else to say. The idea was complete. The orchids in the background would stay in outline. Sometimes less is more.
