I've used multiple photos again with a small bit of blending. I've also used a new drawing or "doodle" as part of my background. I'd say this is less art and more story, but still a bit of both.
The Gray Catbirds are mimic thrushes a bit like our mockingbirds. They have calls that do sound quite a bit like cats, hence their name. At least two have been hanging out in the silky dogwoods for a few days, sitting out in the open at times. One of those times today I was able to photograph a bird with the telephoto from the kitchen window. I was happy to see the squirrels really have left a good bit of fruit which is now turning blue, its ripe color. I really do enjoy these plants!

My new drawing or doodle is a bit bigger, about 5.5 inches across. It is freeform somewhat like one of Deb's newest. It is also probably pretty strange. Turning it can create different illusions too.
