Artist Reference Photos: Australasian Magpie
During my travels through New Zealand in a camper van, I was lucky enough to enjoy the company of an Australasian Magpie one day during lunch. I tossed a bit of bread to it and it spent quite a while examining the morsel and dragging it away before scarfing it down.
My partner used his iPhone to snap several photos in rapid succession as the Magpie walked up, snatched the bread and waddled away. The photos are not good enough quality to use on their own, but they still capture some playful and artistic poses of the bird, as well as coloration and feather details.
This pack is great to use if you're designing logos or other designs, or need some pose ideas. Replace the bread with a gem or ring and your have yourself a thieving magpie!
