Walk in the park, overcast skies with the sun peaking out now and then, temperature in mid 70’s. The turtles were out on logs all over the pond. Some logs had 10-15, some fewer. One log had two, one had just one. Why so many turtles to a log? For companionship, for warmth? Are they spacially aware they are so crowded?
Drawing from a still subject is a bit easier, able to see more details and enjoy the process. I saw the fine details of the feathers, the feet and the beak. I don’t think I could have seen it all from a bird on a feeder or limb, but look forward to that challenge.
