I’ve been observing the birds that come to eat at our feeder. They brave the elements, compete for a place, fuss and play, but they are always on alert.
It seems they can rarely truly rest.
Reflection On Reflections:A Collaboration
Elena, very nice sketch and so expressive! I love it so much!
Have a wonderful day! With much love, Stefania!
Thank you-you too!
This is a hauntingly fragile drawing.
Your expressive drawing and comment says it all. I have always marveled at the birds who build their nests on the tip top of a cactus and sit there during a monsoon. I don’t thinks they rest either.
I’ve never witnessed birds in a nest in a cactus, but what wonderful imagery! Have a great day Christina.
wow. your imagination amazes me
Thanks much Carol:)
Like a teenager about to leave the nest to make a life away from home.. the expression is most excellent Elena
Amazing sketch, Elena 🙂
Thanks very much:)
For me there is something scary about the human bird’s vulnerability. Almost as if it survives these first vulnerable days of its life, it will grown up to become a dangerous vulture. Or maybe it’s just my imagination? It’s a great sketch with so much character and intensity.
Oh yes. I see both sides of the behavior. Because they are so vulnerable, they are fierce survivors. Thanks Otto.
they seem so fragile. Well done it’s so moving 🙂
An interesting analogy – an in different forms vulnerability remains a constant feature of the human condition.
Certainly true Louis.
Fantastic composition, wonderful drawing!
Thanks much Mary!
They are so restless, aren’t they? Constantly flitting about. Your sketch is so tender – vulnerable indeed. Beautiful.
(Which reminds me, I must get bird seed today)
Oh, they are! Flitting, a great word. Thank you Karen. The birds thank you too;)
So cool, I totally love the nest and all the different layers and styles of twigs that make it up. Adorable little creature in there too, snug in a blanket and maybe with some bird-like claws. Magical!
Thanks so much Cindy.
I can feel the life struggle they must go through every day.
They look so fragile, the little ones, but how they survive!
It’s very beautiful, very artistic! Thanks for sharing.
My pleasure, thank you.
