These graphically designed birds are designed to be avian submarines, holding their breath for 5 minutes and diving up to 250 under water. Most birds have hollow bones to conserve weight to make flying less burdensome, but loons have solid bones which assist in diving. This is a single plate etching printed with fours colors, then entirely hand-painted with watercolors.
