February 2015 Giveaway!

This month's giveaway is a close-up of a Green Heron, drawn in colored pencil by me, and framed in a simple 5x7 frame. This type of heron frequents Run*A*Round. It is quirky and colorful - sort of a perfect Mardi Gras bird, I'd say. :)
This drawing was inspired by a photograph taken by blogger friend, Kenneth Schneider of Rosyfinch Ramblings. He's got some great shots of these characters; just click on his blog name to view his post.

If you'd like to be entered in this month's giveaway, you must:

a) Be a public follower of this blog (click the 'Join this Site' button on the side bar to sign up if you haven't already done so
and
b) Leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to be entered, would like to win this heron, etc.

I'll choose a winner sometime around month end. Thanks, everyone!

This giveaway opportunity is now closed.

I sure like your picutures Theresa!
They are all great and in such wonderful detail!
But don't enter me here for this one, I'm glad if a real bird lover gets it :)
Maybe one day if you should get inspired by one of my beach pictures :))
Have a fine day
and good luck to all the others

Beautiful, and I hopped over to Kenneth, his photos and videos are great, but I need another word for the chick videos, herbicides, used widely down here for possum control, but it has many more far reaching effects, and so many are against its use at all.Superb drawing, feathers in perfect detail.
