Safe- Illustration Friday. This is and old one, but I thought it fit perfectly!
The baby sea turtle is not safe until it reaches the water. After hatching from their eggs they must make their way to the shore as fast as they can so they don't get eaten by predators! As young sea turtles (regardless of the species) they go off to the sea and no one knows where they spend the first year of their lives, or "the lost year." Many biologists speculate that they float in and among rafts of sargassum weed, feeding on the rich variety of small creatures that seek refuge in it. Only a small percentage of baby turtles will survive to become adult animals and make their homeward journey to perpetuate their kind.

"HOMAGE" Illustration Friday

This is an "homage" within an "homage!" I am paying homage to our very nice, new neighbor who promptly put out a bird feeder after she moved in to pay homage to the birds and nature. Funny thing is...she mostly gets crows, starlings and grackles. P.S. That is her dog, Maisey.
