Illustration Friday: Instinct -

"Instinct"
digital collage by Mick Mather
The title of today's post, instinct, is also this week's theme at Illustration Friday. I suppose it's becoming obvious that I'm having major thoughts of spring. As I believe I may have already mentioned recently, I can smell it in the air even in the middle of gale force winds and the spitting and sputtering of blizzard-like flurries ... (sigh!) ... :)

Goes with the birdhouses, too, don't you think?

Mary Stebbins Taitt:
I'm glad you like it and it only seems like it would go with the birdhouses. A nest is surely a bird's home, but not a birdhouse. I'll leave the final decision to you, of course. :)

Lisa Sarsfield:
I don't mean to sound as though I'm blowing my own horn, but I was as amazed and overjoyed as anyone when this popped out of the Secret Visual laboratory! :)

isay:
Thank you very much, Isay ... I'll have to drop by your place later today.

SusuPetal:
Indeed they are and they'll be flying away, beyond the summer sun, sooner than we know! :)

Wonderful work...I wonder if it could put birds off making eggs, those beaks are pretty scary.

ArtSparker:
Thanks, Susan ... since the eggs come first, I'm pretty sure that the scary beaks are long forgotten before the next batch. Gee, that also solves the age-old question as well, "which came first?"

John:
It can't be far away ... can it?

gotta love baby birds - except they are so needy.

THE CHARM SCHOOL DROPOUT:
That's very true, Sarah, but only for one relatively short season. Unlike us, who are needy until the day we die! :D
