just a moment of relief during a snowstorm :D

edited to add:  a DD?  Well thank you so much! :woohoo:
Incidentally, all of my bird and squirrel photographs are free stock, even if they're not marked that way yet. Just send me a note of comment, and I'll make it available as stock.  Only rule, don't use em for anything vulgar. Also, I would like to see your finished work, so would love a link, so I can come admire. :D

Did you ever manage to do the woodburning?  How did it turn out?  Are you happy with it, that's the main thing.  If not, just try again! :)

What a gorgeous little bird! Wow I love his earthy colors on the chest and then the red and black on the face is so pretty. And his little sticky legs that look pretty with the plant stems.

I thought this was a chickadee at first, but then I realized it didn't have the black cap on. I'm not good at identifying birds.

Either way, this is a beautiful, beautiful photo. As my grandma would say, "Oh that is a very fine sparrow." :iconbehappyplz:
