Here is the latest wildlife to our bird feeder. These turkeys stayed around for 3 hours and then wandered away. Hard to believe we have this assortment of wildlife, given we live on a busy highway. However, out yard backs up to a pond and some woods.
The squirrel was really freaked out when these birds arrived.....lol
There were actually 6 of them. Somehow the sixth one didn't get in the picture. Shy maybe...

I just had to show the visitors to our birdfeeder. They have been here every evening for the past week. Several years ago we had a pair that came every day for a month and then took a swim in our neighbor's pool. We named them Harry and Madeline as the male reminded my husband of his grandfather, always following his grandmother around. The male mallard is very protective, before she lays eggs. Wonder if it is the same pair.....lol

Here is an update to the firemen portrait. I started the station house and the front is just about done. Now I have the 2 side sections to add and then I shall be done. I really don't like doing architectural drawings so I found this a bit tedious.

I am presently doing a commission portrait of 5 firefighters in one family. This is done in graphite and each head is approximately 3 1/2 inches tall. The fire station will be in the middle w/ a title underneath that. I really hope to finish this by the end of the week as I have another to start on.
