Pilchard Pilfer by StressedJenny Pilchard Pilfer by StressedJenny
Really quick sketch and colour of some Selkie shennanigans.

Bloody Cormorants. I was watching Life (with my hero, David Attenborough) on dvd a while ago and there was some beautiful slow mo footage of sea birds diving into the water to catch fish. I loved how graceful and elegent they looked as they dived into the water, in contrast to how they instantly looked bedraggled and cumbersome in their ascent.

I effing love nature.

Hard luck Oula. Better luck next time.

A saltwater cormorant, in some places, is called a shag, I dont think that would work in Britain, because everyone would be giggling all the time.

Now now, everyone has an equal shot at the pilchard, just because the cormorant beat you to it don't mean you need to get all un-civil about it Selkie! :D

Oh look a pilchard Oula!
*In the old lady tone of Monty Python* I DON'T LIKE PILCHARDS THEY SMELL LIKE FISH!!!!!! :giggle:

David Attenborough is my hero too, and I watched this same series just the other day! SADLY - I can only get the version RUINED by Opera. ;_;

I was pleased the special featuers were still narrated by him tho. :3

I will watch The Life of Birds ENDLESSLY while working on paintings. I love listening to him talk!
