Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I am lucky enough to live by a large open space where the crowds and crows gather in the summer to feed. The people pick at disposable barbecues and the crows pick at everything that's left behind. When the crowds are gone, the crows remain and scavenge for whatever they can catch. In this case, I was watching this bird, darting about in a crazy pattern on the ground looking like a complete novice, until I noticed the fat bee that it was chasing.

I love the challenge of capturing strong dynamic movement in my pieces. These birds, when they are stretching for something are extraordinary; they are like cats with that lightweight construction in a loose flexible package that allows them to defy gravity with a finely controlled elegance. This fellow was right back to his prehistoric predatory past in pursuit of his prey. Watching him in action was like seeing Jurassic Park live in miniature!

** Caution**
- These sculptures have sharp edges - It's Not A Toy!
