Everyday Matters #125: Draw a bird

I am off-again on-again with EDM, mostly off. But my sweet blog-friend, Julie said, "Let's do an EDM challenge, and I said, "OK, you pick the topic." She picked #125, Draw a bird.

It didn't take me long to decide what bird to do.

This is Suzanna when she was just a baby. She is a 2 year old hen now, and she lives, along with her sister Victoria and a menagerie of other birds and critters, in Australia. They are all beloved pets of Magda, who found me on Bug Safari, then came here and has also become my blog-friend!

Magda has deep a spiritual passion for all living things. She recently posted on her blog about her hens, Victoria and Suzanna, including pictures of them as they were growing up. If you go to her post, you will see the photo I used as a model for my picture. Little Suzanna looks so cute gazing up at her mama (Magda). And I guess I'm just a sucker for cute little fuzzy babies. Or babies in general, for that matter.

I think I may have cheated by doing this drawing digitally in ArtRage rather than on paper, but I'm giving myself artistic licence and anyway, this is just for fun.

No more bunny

As I had feared, the baby bunny didn't live through the night.  Oh well.  At least he was warm and safe in his final hours.

BUN Safari

BUN Safari
Michael found this tiny baby bunny on the sidewalk on the way home from work today. Ants were all over it, and at first he thought it was dead, but he quickly realized it was still alive. He scooped it up and brought it home.

I was out when he came home with it, and when I walked in the door, he had it in a shoe box on the kitchen table. I immediately got on the phone trying to find a local wildlife rehabber we could take it to, but Michael quickly put a stop to that. It's his bunny. He found it, and he wants to try to take care of it.


He went to the pet store and bought replacement formula for kitties. He fed the bunny with an eye-dropper, and it took some formula.

Trying not to butt in. Not to take over. Not to micro-manage.
