#NatureDoodlewash Tree Swallow

June 14  This could actually be another scene from the aft deck of our boat.  A pair of tree swallows have built a nest inside a hole in a piling on our dock.  We have enjoyed watching them coming and going busily feeding a nest full of young.  On occasion the pair appear to be having words over how to raise and feed their young with a great deal of bickering back and forth.  But soon they go back to busily coming and going.  A cacophony arises from the nest with each trip.   The youngsters have all left the nest now.  But it would appear the couple are preparing for another batch.  The cycle will begin again and we will be entertained some more.

#NatureDoodlewash  Once again I have used Neocolor II Caran D’Ache combined with Gallery Mungyo Watercolor Crayons.  I really need to get myself a bigger collection of Neos!!  Original art by Susan Feniak  on Canson Mix Media 7” x 10” paper

    Your doodle wash is so cute! How wonderful to watch the cycle of life. Over here we have a mama squirrel who has made her nest in a bird house and is awaiting the arrival of her litter. Watched her stuffing grass into the bird house this morning.
