The Purple-throated Carib, Eulampis jugularis, is a widespread species in the Caribbean, which I’ve been lucky to observe and sketch during a trip to Guadeloupe.

This painting depicts the male, at top, with its shorter, straighter bill visiting one species of Heliconia flower and the female, at bottom, visiting a different species of Heliconia which is more suited to her longer, decurved bill.

 This painting was created as part of a coloring book I illustrated in collaboration with the conservation organization BirdsCaribbean. The book is titled Birds of the West Indies Colouring Book, and you can learn more about it and download a free copy from my website.

Dimensions: 12” x 16” matted and ready to frame

Medium: watercolor
