Nevermind about The Avengers Infinity War. Who will win this epic battle? The snail or the Hermit Crab?

On the note of bottom feeders, I came across the smallest crab in the world while I was trying to catch (and release) a Largemouth Bass, featured in my recent video, First Bass of the Year. Plus, my cat makes a short cameo. Let me know if you like. Thanks!

The whole concept of downsizing and having a smaller footprint on this beautiful planet intrigues a growing population of homeowners. Not to mention, a life without a 30-year mortgage sounds likes music to our ears. Right?

I made my Tiny House drawings into postcards. If you like collecting postcards or simply love tiny houses, check them out at my tiny storeĀ  at designosaurus.etsy.com.

Happy Earth Day everybody!

This is my drawing of a Largemouth Bass. It was a long cold winter, but now it is Spring and he is very hungry.

northern_mockingbird_by_al_lau

I see a variety of birds out the window when they are on the bird feeder. I recognize most of the kinds of birds that visit, but there is a new one this year that I have never seen before. It is rather elagant, longer and more slender than most songbirds, and it actually is staying around most of the winter. So I call him “my bird”. Interestingly, he is not afraid of me when I approach. After many searches in guides, I finally know what it is – A Northern Mockingbird. I also learn that mockingbirds are omnivorous, which means they enjoy eating insects in addition to seeds. They are known for their elaborate collection of vocalizations.

My drawing is dedicated to him. It won’t be long before the warm spring weather will bring plenty of food for him to eat elsewhere. Maybe he will sing one more song before he flies away.
