There is a lot to do over the winter holiday season. So much preparation - cooking, shopping, cleaning, and of course, the zebra's annual bath.

This was a great topic because there are no limits to the imagination.
My idea was to paint penguins on a tropical beach. (penguins, rhinos, zebras and giraffes are some of my favorite animals to draw). Well, as often happens, the painting evolved into something quite different from what I had initially imagined.

The blue-footed booby is a comical-looking tropical seabird with bright blue webbed feet.
Breeding begins with elaborate courtship displays by the male. He flies around his territory, flaunting his blue feet in an exaggerated high-stepping walk, and presents pieces of nest material to the female. After making a courtship flight, the male flashes his feet at the female as he lands. Then each bird tilts its bill up towards the sky and the male gives a piercing whistle. The female responds with groaning calls, and mating follows shortly afterwards.

The blue-footed booby got its name from the spanish word bobo, which means stupid fellow. Its lack of fear and clumsiness on land has made the species vulnerable to man.
