The print is then mounted on a cradled wood block and coated with a UV resistant protectant to prevent fading. Each block is signed and numbered on the back (the edition # you receive will vary).Ready to hang from a sawtooth hanger attached to the back. Watermarks will not appear on print.

This listing is for a limited edition, fine art print of my original painting of a Wire-Tailed Swallow called “You’re My Flame.”
This little fellow is feeling appreciative of his love. It can be hard to find the right mate amongst a vast flock.
About the bird:
From our friends at The Beauty of Birds:
The Wire-tailed Swallows (Hirundo smithii) are swallows found in Africa and Asia.
Their common name is derived from their very long, fine outer tail feathers which trail behind like two wires; and their scientific name honors Professor Chetien Smith, a Norwegian botanist, who was a member of the expedition that discovered this species.
Distribution / Habitat
Wire-tailed Swallows occur in two distinct populations:
The African race is widespread south of the Sahara, except for their range extending further along the Nile, and they are not found in the western equatorial lowland forests.
In southern Asia, they are found from Tadzhikistan, Afghanistan and northern Pakistan through India to Burma as well as northwestern and northeastern Thailand, Laos and central Vietnam.
Rarely, vagrants travel to Sri Lanka.
They are mostly resident (non-migratory), except for some populations in Pakistan and northern India that migrate south for the winter.
They are usually seen in pairs close to bodies of water and human habitation; or these fast fliers may fly low over water as they pursue their prey.
