The image is striking in its realism and the artist does an excellent job of portraying the animal in a manner that does not question what type of creature is being presented. Obviously the form retains its natural shape. One thing that immediately grasps the eye of the viewer is the splendid use of color. The contrast of the yellow and shades of blue is quite pleasing to the eyes. It is clear and concise without too much detail or an over saturation of elements, but is basic although not to the point of being brutally simple. There is a nice flow of lines and the points the artist chose to accentuate (i.e. beak and eye) greatly enhance the the images presentation.
