#411 In the studio: Bird anatomy, con't . . .

Please start this bird anatomy series with post #403, March 10.

Recently, while attending an art exhibition in San Antonio, I had the pleasure of photographing and sketching along the city's famed Riverwalk.  What a delightful "in the field" experience!  

Below, a duck sweeps it's femur or thigh out and sideways from the body . . . thus giving free play and movement to the leg.  A duck is in it's element in the water and awkward on land. 

More about the duck's anatomy on the next post.

Below, is a sketch of a mallard taking off along the San Antonio Riverwal
