It’s a magic mural. I hated to leave it.

I absolutely adore the oxpecker on the rhino’s back!

 To me there is a wonderful sense of loving humor in this mural.

 Is this like a giant Kingfisher? (Shot eliminating most of the one annoying tag)

    1. I do get your “likes”! I hope you get mine, as well! I enjoy reading your poetry with morning coffee, or when I get a break.
      Take care! _Resa

    1. It’s a story!
      I discovered him (the biker) lounging against a mural that I had found & shot earlier. Yadadadada… ended up tagging along with me to my point of destination, the Rhino Birds. He’d never seen it, but would show me where all the good stuff was along the way.
      It was a lot of fun to see what he had to show, and when we got to the mural… well you see his reaction!
      I love the pic!

  1. I’ve got to plan a trip now! This is so exciting to find art alive on the streets in such fullness… but in the meantime… going to explore your blog which I just found from your visit.. thank you for bringing me your cities 🙂

    1. Your welcome! 🙂
      There is so much art in the streets here that between Toronto and Winnipeg, I’m at least 300 + posts behind.
      I’m hoping to get to a train yard tomorrow. There is some great art on the freight cars, and the art travels all over the U.S.A. and Canada.

      1. I sometimes wish our inner cities had more gumption… there is a little, but not to this extent, and definitely not a full blow artistic cultural world like one can see here… amazing, it brings wonder to us again… 🙂

        1. 😀
          I’d love to go on a mural trip to Philadelphia. They’ve been painting the streets for over 30 years and have over 3,600 murals there. I’ve seen some amazing pictures!

  2. The artistry in this graffiti art is awesome, I love the brilliant detail in the birds and of course the amazing drawing of the rhinoceros, which stands out so elegantly in this scene. You are really spoiling us with these fascinating pieces of graffiti art 🙂 Thank you Resa 🙂

  3. I think this mural is wonderful Resa. You did a good job of capturing the immensity of it. And the artists are to be commended — great wildlife scene, each creature reflected beautifully for who they are, including the whimsical oxpecker atop the rhino.
