The Holidays are on my mind...

Here is a bit of what I've been working on for the holidays. I'll post the final piece(s) after the recipients receive their pieces. The goose is my own drawing, and this also includes stamping and collage.

Cool Hawk!

This is a gorgeous photo that my son took in Santa Barbara. I think it's a Ferrugunous Hawk but please feel free to correct me if you know what it is. Maybe just a redtail, none the less- gorgeous! He said it had just been riding the air currents, just hanging in the air without soaring. Then decided to come down for a meal.

Amazing Nature

It just amazes me to see such humble beauty in the world! And I feel so lucky to have been able to capture it with my camera. This was taken from inside the house through a dirty glass window. I think it's a painted lady (???) And it is a very lucky lady because about 8 inches away is a preying mantis just wishing he had a butterfly for dinner! Don't worry she escaped safely!
