Tribute to a winter beauty


 A little softer colour, which one do you think works best?
 I found this thrush when we got home today she had hit the window and died. She was so beautiful that I had to try to capture her.

 The dried grasses and lichen branches are really standing out in the grey landscape right now and the birds colours pop in contrast.

 I'm not sure if I prefer the richer colours or the softer palette.

Paper, watercolour, wooden cradle. No two alike.....

 Kitty stretch/pounce oh to be so flexible......
Buddies stretching after napping. Seems that is what they do most of the time with these short rainy days. They have wild bursts of play.
