Rescue mission

We've had some really hot weather lately and it's very dry - we desperately need some rain.
I came out one hot day and saw this little kingfisher twitching on the ground being eaten by ants. He must have been heatstruck and flopped on the ground.
I didn't know they lived up here .I thought it was too dry.
I picked him up , brushed the ants off and took him inside and put him underneath the aircon. We were going to ring wires ( wildlife people) but after 30mins he started to perk up a bit. After an hour or so we thought he would be ok so we took him out and here he is sitting on the verandah ready to go. He took a while but eventually flew off. My good deed for the day..
— feeling happy.

Here is one of my secret Xmas portraits - a memorial portrait

Mr Shirt

'Your work is phenomenal!'
Marshall received a memorial portrait of his Old Staffy 'Staff ' last Xmas . He was so touched he thought a similar gift of a portrait of Shirt for his son would be much loved.Shirt passed away last year.
 His son really loved the portrait and was also deeply moved by the portrait.
