Swift Sunday : The Art of Seeing

Swift for #inktober2017

Swifts are not the fastest birds, but they can stay in the air for long times.
I love this:

Swift-growing-, and swift-shriveling now- fungi.

That swiftest and largest landbird: the ostrich!

Alas, no matter how much it flaps, it will never lift off. I remember an ostrich picture book  I used to read with my children on this topic…it’s probably in storage: Why Can’t I Fly? by Ken Brown. (He just needed lots of wing-friends.)

I have started my #inktober with following Jake Parker‘s #inktober2017 prompts!

Another swift, the fence swift. (Click for attribution). Probably not a flier either – it’s still on the fence about that activity:
