Thirty Little Collages - Beaver
This group of postings show the finished 6" x 6" collages and also the text that I wrote about the animal and included in the collage.
We had been traveling down the stream for some time in the shadows of the thick aspens that lined both banks. Then the stream took a sharp turn and we found ourselves overlooking a sunny meadow. Daisies twinkled in the sun, dotting the grass with pinpoints of sparkling light.
A small band of beavers lolled in the warm spring sunlight. The adults relaxed on the bank, nearly asleep yet with a watchful eye on the young ones who sometimes displayed more curiosity and energy than proved good for them. It was so quiet that you could hear the whisper of the dragonfly wings. Even the birds were mostly quiet and at rest in the trees.
