Very nice! It's great to see a more "exotic" bird. I wonder if he left out the longer tail feathers intentionally? Kind of one of the signature aspects of the bird if you ask me...

Exactly. My girlfriend enjoys the prints, so I get them so she can display them. Only fair considering the other 30 framed prints I have up are all mine.

It would terribly bum me out if I missed these two guys, I just wish people who bought them actually wanted them instead of trying to make money on others.

EDIT: I wish Mike would make these a limited run, even for a day. When he did it before, for 72 hours the run was still like 150. Usually his birds and even other things are out of 100. The problem is people snatch them up so quickly then re-sell. With a limited it wards off those people, yet 50 more people get a piece they wanted. It's a win win for everyone, a limited run, and available to those who are fans. Just my opinion.
