inspiration from the window - Symbiosis

Symbiosis sketch
Winter has led straight into a ferocious summer and the insects are making up for the lack of transition by swarming it seems. Two days ago as I stood in the safety of the house behind the glass wall I watched the sheep outside as they twitched their ears trying to deal with the mosquitoes, when I noticed the birds.  The black birds we sitting on the fence and on the sheep! Whether sitting or walking a number of them had a bird on their back. It was actually quite funny and amazing to watch these passengers and the symbiotic relationship in play.
 Even though this is posted on Saturday it is my  Sunday Sketches entry:)Wishing you a Wonderful Sunday ♥♥♥

I love the bright crisp colors that you used. Nature always amazes me and you captured another example of why. Have a great Sunday.
