I was going to make this dragon on all fours, more like a serpent, but my canvas was already big enough and I don’t like huge file sizes so… I made him like a retired grand-dragon. Complete with clenched fist and a sign to keep the young-uns at bay while he relaxes.

A young starling has to be clever when eating its breadcrumb, there are bread thieves everywhere!

 

This (male) robin was up bright and early to get the jump on a whole bunch of grubs! I wonder if he has a nest full of little ones to feed?

Sometimes when Kyoko falls asleep he does the cutest whisker and paw twitches.

During another trip to the wetlands we saw a heron, we think its a “green heron” … although it doesn’t look very green to me!

Its so interesting how this bird keeps its neck against its body, it has a longer neck than it seems!

Just look at that stretch!

If kittens could really play video games… it would be cute until the sounds from games kept you up at night.

and what if the cats had a temper when they lost the game?

The cats have found the catnip bush in the garden and Kyoko is the first to claim it as his own with great big Kyo-hugs.

His mood is soured when Lisa comes into the picture and wants some of that fragrant catnip for herself.

 

Its been some time since I originally made my post about folding an origami dragon.

It seems to me that my instructions were not so clear, since I only had photos for demonstration.
Here is a video I made showing step by step instructions on how to fold an origami dragon with wings.

 

We were so lucky to have the company of all three of our cats while on an expedition to the creek. We were looking for Nice Guy’s collar in the brush, its fun to imagine that the cats were helping us to look.

 

We were having a bit of a picnic with our cats outside, of course I brought my video camera! Then our neighbor’s cat Seven comes along to see what we are doing and we were surprised to see Nice Guy hop up and ask Seven to play with him.

Sadly, Nice Guy lost his collar outside last night when he was out being a panther in the bushes, which is why he isn’t wearing it in this video.

Here is a picture of what his lovely collar used to look like:

Since all of my cats had matching collars, I may as well show all of them!

Now that I think of it, since the collar did its job and broke away when it was caught on something I am glad. Otherwise Nice Guy could have been hurt. I will miss the jingling and adorable bowtie though!
