May I teach it to others with your permission? Would you please email me written permission to paint and teach this? I would like for you to see a finished project of this and I would use your name as the owner of the photo. My email is JBFerre@Hotmail.com.

Kenneth,

This is a beautiful picture and specimen of a bird. Someone sent me a photo similar 2 this one several years ago. I can't remember who it was and I would like to get permission to paint his bird in colored pencils. I am not trying to steal anyone's accomplishments so I would like to hear from you on this matter. Also if the picture I have may have been taken by you may I ask you to take a look at it to see if in fact it is your photo?

They are quite impressive to look at. And ubiquitous to Kenyan and Tanzanian grassland. Not shy at all.
