Creative Challenges

 For Illustration Friday challenge totem....+ for 29 faces challenge face #4.
to·tem  
A natural object or animal believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem.

In my garden the little birds would be my choice of totem animal; they are very busy enjoying the sunflowers that are going to seed.
