Maybe "he" is taking food back to his mate who can't leave the nest? :o) What a good fellow! That's what I'll just keep thinking. Sorry to hear your weather isn't acting summerlike. We had steady rain for weeks -- nice to bring our water table back up, but definitely began feeling water logged. Our temps are now back to normal 90s. I'm very thankful for airconditioning. :o)

Well, it seems a very Scottish spring with snow and hail. Do we need something a bit more appropriate perhaps?

Something a bitty different again, not quite what I had been looking for so desperately all that time, but I guess what's lost is lost. Wondering now whether to pick up the quill again....
Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend.

Story
Tagline
I smile, I dig, I pick, I click, I draw, I paint, I make, I look, I see, I watch - a while - and smile.
Introduction
Mostly, I draw people and animals from photographs, but I like making things in general. And I love my garden and watching everything grow.

Hm, I got my first DSLR not long ago. Just a basic entry level one. But it's getting put to plenty use and some of the results will turn up here for folk to review and tell me where I'm going wrong. There's lots to learn!

Here are some of my attempts:
