Baby bird

After I drew this picture I immediately thought it looked like a baby eagle or an ugly duckling. It doesn't really look like either, but it does look like a misfit, not too pretty, a bit at odds with itself. Something that could turn into a thing of beauty, which even before then is still beautiful in its own unique way. If only it knew it! I always loved the story of the ugly duckling that turns into the beautiful swan. Nature is incredible at times. The fact that a tree can grow from a tiny seed and that tree can produce food and shelter for all manner of creatures for years always amazes me. 

Can you see an ugly duckling in this picture or are you seeing something else?

Look out for my drawing coming up next Thursday which in a break from tradition so far is not any type of creature. Although you are welcome to draw your own conclusions from it!
