  1. I love your posts Lukas! They are witty and beautifully illustrated, and easy to read for those who don’t want to read a whole book in a blog? (Not that I mind when people write them, but I can read more blog posts when they are shorter)

    • Thank you very much, I really appreciate your feedback, it means a lot to me to see that you enjoyed my work. I try to keep it short and sweet or actually funny. Thank you again for stopping by and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. My yard is full of these things. I do like how their dark feathers get kind of iridescent when the sun hits them.
