I have painted lots of 'Akepas because the males have that great bright orange color and the females are adorable too. This pair is playing Tarzan and Jane on a bunch of mangoes.
The mango is my favorite fruit. If I order a smoothie somewhere, better believe it's going to have some mango in it. There are many types of mangoes as I've discovered over the years, this type appears to be the Hayden mango. Big, juicy and oh so tasty! But for now, these 'Akepas will just be playing on their food.
