Out and about teaching students at the zoo last week, I had time in between to get in some quick sketches of my own. The octopus and birds captured my fancy most. I had no idea a hooded pitta bird even existed so a wonderfully colorful personal discovery.

The octopus looked positively peaceful sleeping. Her tentacles moved about slowly from time to time. What does she dream about I thought?

The two images on the right are birds from the Milwaukee County Zoo, while those on the left were done out at local parks. I wish the bluebird had been around much longer to draw more detail. It was the first time I had seen an Eastern bluebird so a momentous birdwatching event for me captured in very humble terms.

All images are my own so please do not reproduce and copy without my consent. The creative respect is appreciated.
