Seeing More

I was happy to find that I am not the only one that finds surprises in what they draw. I couldn't resist posting this drawing after I read Patty's post about her found bird. You can see it here.  While my drawing isn't as exotic as her drawing I was surprised when my DB looked at my drawing and said "it looks like a bird". I was actually drawing a big tree stump that we had admired while out birding. What do you think?  Do you see a bird in this stump?
I hope you all have a birdy, I mean GREAT weekend.

Wonderful.

Yes! I see it! In fact, I don't know how anyone could not see it...isn't that funny? I see lots of animals in clouds too, and in woodgrain, but I'm afraid everyone would think I'm nuts if I posted all the "animal" clouds I see! ha ha ha
