Vulture Culture Excitement

There was excitement at the Vulture Culture exhibit at Arizona Sonora Desert Museum last Wednesday when two wild vultures showed up. Here's one. He's actually outside the netting and looking longingly at the enclosure where a very disturbed great blue heron was feeling threatened by this wild onlooker. 

Over at the next enclosure where the captive vultures live, things were different. The three resident vultures were nonchalant. Fed and admired, the birds inside the fence know where their bread is buttered.

Rusty, the Berger de Picard

What a face! I gained a follower on Halloween night when I kept slipping little bits of potato chips to this Muppet.

Color Pencil Pathways

The color charts for Prismacolor pencils look like pathways, new pathways for me. I'm getting ready for a color pencil workshop and making out color swatches is one way of familiarizing myself with the touch and feel of a new medium.
