Another RS Gallery


Maple Leaf Lantern.

If ever I need to fill a gap and brighten up Birds2blog at the same time there's one place I can always take a look and that's at Richard Shillings Landart website....OK you may ask 'whats this got to do with a birding blog' well nothing at all actually but so what, everything can become a bit tedious at times and a change is as good as a rest. Well you can never fail to be impressed when you see some of the things this man gets up to with his creative mind running in 5th gear and I was really taken in by this his latest creation above, and....

  
Doodle on a Rock-Concentric Maple Leaves.

I was with this one too....Richard has a new book out 'Transcience' and I recommend you take a look at his website HERE to get an idea of what the book contains and to keep up to date on what he's been creating recently.

Thanks for these two photographs Richard, and you're really going to have to put up with my Songs of Praise as you never fail to bowl me over with your art and I reckon you do the same to most if not all my visitors.

And finally....

Before you view the video below I'm asking you if you are going to attend this years 'Scilly Season' soon and more to the point planning your first ever pelagic trip, if you are then I'd suggest you leave Birds2blog without watching it but if you can't resist the temptation you must note this is on board a huge ocean going liner and not some small craft with a handful of birders on board....make your choice now!!

Pete. Wonderful stuff as always,as is Richard Shilling's wonderful and inspirational art work. I often visit his site and marvel at his creations from Nature's raw materials. I have never been one for cruising and your video highlights just what the power of the sea can do to a large liner.

Richard will be please at your comment, the second one I've had recently on Birds2blog about his work. The video is pretty scary stuff.

Even though I know you do so regularly, thanks for looking in Brian.
