Drawing from the photo was easy because the bird didn't move and I had plenty of time to draw everything I saw. The challenging part was figuring out what to draw first and making sure of placement and that everything was the correct size. If I wasn't asked to draw the picture I might not have noticed the position of the Warbler's legs, one seems to be straight and the other is bent. I think that might make a difference when nature journaling because it shows how the bird balances on a branch.
I have always been fascinated with nature journals. I didn't know where to begin as it all seemed time consuming, sitting and drawing, noticing the fine details of nature. I'm a teacher and would like to have my students keep a nature journal. I enjoyed looking and hearing about all the journals in the video especially Shayne's and Holly's. Shayne's is organized just the way I like to keep things organized on paper. I thought the zoom was a great idea. Holly's journal looks like a book, very artistic.
