ORANGE-BREASTED FALCON & GRENADA MORPHO - Orange-breasted Falcon & Grenada Morpho by Carel Brest van Kempen
Subject: Orange-breasted Falcon & Grenada Morpho
Dimensions (inches): 28 x 18
Medium: acrylic
Description: Roughly the size and build of a Peregrine, the ucommon and poorly-understood Orange-breasted
Falcon (Falco deiroleucus) is distributed patchily in Central and South America. Although it's rarely
seen far from heavy tropical forest, it feeds mostly on birds that are captured above the canopy. It nests
in nooks in cliffs adjacent to forests, and probably sometimes in tree cavities. The heavy feet and beak
of this species are relatively bigger than those of any other falcon. The Granada Morpho (Morpho
granadensis) is one of around 30 members of a butterfly genus well known for the immense and
iridescent blue wings of a number of species. Incidental animals in this painting include a Misfit Leaf
Frog (Agalychnis saltator) and a young Fraser's Anole (Anolis fraseri).
