The Majestic Pukeko by EOSthusiast The Majestic Pukeko by EOSthusiast
Portrait of one of New Zealand's most beautiful birds, the Pukeko. Pukeko is the Maori name for the Purple Swamphen.

I've seen a couple of Pukekos near Whatipu, the black sand beach west of Auckland, New Zealand.

Don't miss this royal fellow's companion, the Jester, in my other Pukeko Deviation: The Goofy Pukeko


Please don't use without my permission - thanks! :)

Glad you like it! :D Sure thing, feel free to paint this, as long as it's not for commercial use. If you need the picture in a higher resolution, send me a note. ;) Could you please credit me and the photo when you post the painting on deviantArt? Thanks!
