Greetings everyone.  This is :iconsorath-rising: posting here.  It's been while since I have posted a journal.  I thought this would be an interesting post because not many groups on DA exist where the founders and admins know each other in real life.  :iconmalidicus: Chris is my husband and we both love birds and nature.  Last August :iconperegrinefalconlady: visited me again.  I picked her up at her hotel and took her around to some of my local sites. I took her to Colt Creek State Park and we had a blast bird watching. She got some amazing photos of a red shoulder hawk that was so close to us on a tree.  We came across the filming of a documentary movie while in this park.  It takes place during WWII from what they told us and they had this original Willys Jeep set up.

We had a nice lunch and I introduced her to dragon fruits.  I only had a white one but it was not bad.  We spent time playing games and she got to meet my budgie :iconwhtlacewingbudgieplz: Bullet.  I also showed her the art I was making of my character Scary Fear and showed her how I make digital art.  We're both digital artists so that was fun to talk about and see the programs we use.    So over all it was a great time.

I just got back from celebrating Chris's birthday this October as well as Halloween.  For Halloween we met up wtih :iconactipton80:.  We drove up to Georgia and stayed with our aunt in the mountains.  It's always so beautiful up there. It was our first time seeing the lovely Fall leaves too. we're Floridians and we don't get Fall colors.  Then we drove to NC on Halloween.  We brought our budgie Bullet with us.  Bullet has developed several tumors and is not doing so well.  We celebrated her birthday back in September as she turned 5.  She wasn't expected to live to Halloween but I have been doing my best to take care of her and am pleased she is still with us and was able to meet Actiption's budgies Rocky and Izzy.

We had a very nice time and we needed this week long vacation.  Hope everyone had a pleasant Halloween.

Hii, is it ok if I join this group? I'm currently drawing a series of American State Birds and I think that this group would be perfect for posting new bird-art. After I'm done, I think I'm going to switch to a different animal but I would still love to share with you guys the designs in the meantime.^-^
