Looking closely

Came home today to find a poor little Great Tit laying on the patio. His feathers were so beautiful I had to take some photos. Of course I'd much rather see the birds flying around the feeders and in and out of our verandah, but I couldn't miss this opportunity to study one close up.








I feel a bit of drawing coming on...

  2. I know how you felt. I am always sad to find a poor bird who flew too close to the house, or died from unknown to me causes. But, before I put on my mourning garb for the burying ceremony, I grab my camera. Seeing the feathers, toes/claws, beak, etc. up close is just amazing. I too hope some of the feather photos are destined to become cloth. Happy drawing!

  5. Oh how beautiful. We had great tits nesting in the garden this year and they are such lovely birds it's always so sad when they fly into the house. I can see quilting lines already in these pictures.
    PS loved the mono-quilting DMTV film this week.
