"Our pet" ground squirrel, Suzy, was being hounded by a Falcon, so she decided to move her babies to a safer place. Dennis heard squeaking and went out to investigate. A little later, the falcon was sitting next to her trail, so he went down to escort Suzy up the path. After that, I decided to sit and keep an eye out for her safety, passing the time by practicing my drawing. I picked up a camelia that had dropped from the bush next to my bench.
Suzy ended up moving seven (!) precious packages--we don't know if she had already moved some before we, and the falcon, took notice.
Later, I added a little color to the image. I need to take more of these sketch breaks!
