Roseate Spoonbills do not seem to have a problem talking to other birds and animals around them. They twist and turn their bodies like acrobats to be able to have a better vantage point in which to chat. Their bodies ability to turn this way and that almost mimics the branches that they love to perch in. The branches themselves are filled with curves and twists. I like to create a rhythm in my paintings. If a bird feels quite curvy, I enjoy placing them atop branches that mimic the posture.
In this scene, I depicted one of those acrobatic birds hanging upside down in able to see and talk to the other birds around it. The focus on the bird and twisted branches gives the piece a playful feel.
