Deinonychus Sushi July 2013

Medium: Photoshop CS4
Time taken: ~2 hours
High-resolution: Purchase Print

Deinonychus antirrhopus was not always going after giant Tenontosaurus. Most mid-sized modern predators are highly opportunistic, and many will take a fish if one is available.

Pose is based loosely on a fabulous picture of a heron with a fish by *RHCheng; sadly, the particular photo seems to have been deleted.
