I used one of these photographs for reference. But I regrouped the birds and tried to achieve depth by pushing one group into the back ground. I also gave the background the deeper, warmer colors that I remembered but that the camera did not capture. Mostly I payed attention to the rhythm of graceful curves of necks and cascading feathers.
