A Drawing A Day – Week 39

In our old place when we walked we became accustomed to Buzzards shrieking overhead and looked forward to seeing ‘our’ Buzzard who sometimes came very close.  Now we have moved into town we have a new bird friend to enjoy.

Meet Mabel the resident Tawny Owl who lives in this tree, she can be spotted most mornings looking down on us all as we go about our business.  The grass where everyone stops to look has worn away and she is a local celebrity.  I believe she has reared chicks for the past two years.

      She is truly beautiful, and that was on max zoom on my little camera, I could crop in tighter I guess and make her bigger. I find it hard enough drawing plants without adding animals to the mix – I’ve tried a cat once or twice with very limited success. Thanks for your kind comments on my work.
