Ruffle your feathers!

I first spotted these watercolour painting by United Thread on the Paper Cakes blog. I really love how realistic these owls look, while at the same time so decorative. We see lots of owls around here and I always love how scruffy and ruffled(scruffled?) they look - just like these . . .

These are so, so darling and whimsical! Two addendums:

1. The taxonomic word for a group of owls is a *parliament* of owls. Which I'm sure you know already, but really, how marvelous is that?

2. If you're keen on the owl illustration thing, I posted some quirky paintings I'm doing on the owls of India (where I'm living for a year while working on a bigger painting project):

Cheers, and happy early Christmas from the deserts of Rajasthan!

Such a great find, Fiona. I've been kind of "over" the owl trend lately, but I definitely feel that these are outside that trend. Running over to that site now...
