Bird on a wire

I was curious (and still am!) 

Curious to see how my brain ( and pencils) would deal with drawing something so small, so delicate, so elusive.

How it would feel to get lost in feathers as opposed to hair.

How it would feel to render something you are only able to touch with your eyes and heart.

The great news is: these amazing sophisticated little creatures have offered to show me a whole new world... and I have agreed ;)
