It flits fearlessly down at our feet, looking for food. Soft downy feathers with a speckled pattern just showing. Quick as a flash, it darts to the wall, grabbing and swallowing an insect almost before we notice its movement.

Carefully cut pieces, glue and instructions. All three come together slowly, the shape and movement forming like magic. Following a stranger’s design does not diminish the joy of creation.
