SHARKweek day5

pencil and Photoshop

Sometimes I see a flock of birds in a yard pecking around. They look like a little herd of cows out to pasture. And I wonder... what if birds were the size of cows?

Imagine walking along and having a cow sized bird land right in front of you. From out of nowhere. That sharp beak, those talons, the IMPATIENCE and jerky movements... I'd be scared. Really scared! The only thing worse than that would be flying sharks!

This is the last episode of SHARKweek for this year. Hope it was fun for all 12 of you who followed along for the week. I'm gonna take a nap now...keep an eye out for large birds or flying sharks for me, will you?...

Can't say I've thought about that! Sounds like a book, maybe...? : )

Your idea of a cow-sized bird sitting on the bird feeder outside the window makes me laugh.
