Audubon's Roseate Spoonbill Triptych Framed in Black

A print so awesome it can not be contained in one frame. The Roseate Spoonbill from John J. Audubon's The Birds of North America. Framed in a beautiful black wood moulding with acrylic glazing. Each panel is 21.8 inches wide and 49.8 inches tall. It is designed to have a 2 to 3 inch gap between each frame so the total width can be 69 to 72 inches wide. The moulding is made by Roma Moulding and is the best black moulding we have ever found. The light color on the edge really softens up the black stain and is perfect for this piece. I have tried to take the best pictures I could of this piece so you can buy with confidence that what you see is what you get. Please note that colors on your computer screen with vary slightly from what it actually is. The image is printed on acid free cotton rag paper with archival inks that have a light-fastness of over 140 years so it will not fade for a very, very long time.

A little info on this beautiful pink bird. The roseate spoonbill is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family, Threskiornithidae. It is a resident breeder in South America mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, the Gulf Coast of the United States, and from central Florida's Atlantic coast to at least as far north as South Carolina. Like the American flamingo, their pink color is diet-derived, consisting of the carotenoid pigment canthaxanthin. This species feeds in shallow fresh or coastal waters by swinging its bill from side to side as it steadily walks through the water, often in groups. The spoon-shaped bill allows it to sift easily through mud. It feeds on crustaceans, aquatic insects, frogs, newts and very small fish ignored by larger waders.
