Belted Kingfisher

Thanks to all who viewed and bid on the painting

Belted Kingfisher
This painting is 5 x 7", oil on board, unframed


Legend says that Noah sent the kingfisher out to look for land. The kingfisher flew high in the sky (thus her blue back) but so close to the sun that it scorched her breast. Noah was so upset that he made the kingfisher stay on the deck of the ark and catch her food from the water.
