"Coqui, coqui" in watercolors

I just finished this 9x12 inch watercolor of a red hibiscus, which was the February 2013 challenge in the watercolor forum of the art website wetcanvas.com. The red hibiscus is similar to the flower of Puerto Rico called "flor de maga." Therefore, I took some artistic license and added a little coqui frog on the flower. The coqui frog can only be found in Puerto Rico. It makes a sound just like it's name: "Coqui, coqui. "It is a symbol of our culture. Myth has it that it will not survive anywhere else in the world. However, it is now considered a plague in Hawaii  How sad because I would give anything to hear that sound again...

Thinking about maybe painting this larger in the future...
