Illustration Friday 'Proverb'

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

I had so many ideas for this week's word but an excuse to draw three birds? Well I couldn't pass up on that could I? :o)

If you need an excuse to paint birds, you should use the Norwegian version of the same proverb: It´s better with one bird in the hand, than ten birds on the roof!

Nice picture!
