The water of this well is so pure and holy that all things that touch it turn white, including this original pair of swans and all others descended from them. #thedmcollection #wildlifeartist #natureartist #artistofig #animalsinart #illustrationdaily #illustrationoftheday#swan#swans #bird_lovers_daily #birds #nuts_about_birds #featherperfec Sacred Well, Nature Artists, Small Letters, Bird Cards, Apple Wallpaper, Norse Mythology, Farm Yard, Ceramic Painting, Cards And Invitations

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: It seems the English grammarians are yet to settle on a collective noun for robins, with options ranging from ‘a riot of robins’ to ‘a bobbin of robins’. The most apt seems to be ‘a carol of robins’, but you might prefer, ‘a red of robins’ or, ‘a hood of robins’!#robin #robins #birdsbutterfliesandblooms #natureillustration #wildlifeart #birdartist #botanicalartist #scarletrobin #wildlifelovers #watercolourartist #birdsofinstagram #birdlife #britishwildlife Watercolor Paintings, Fleurs Art Nouveau, World Mythology, Collective Nouns, Guache

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: Robins are familiar to many people simply because they are happy living in close proximity to human beings. For anyone who has recently dug their flower beds over, no doubt you spotted a Robin close by, monitoring proceedings. In fact it is said that they have nested in a lovers unmade bed while the couple had breakfast. Apparently a pair nested in a hole made by a cannon ball in the mizzen mast of HMS Victory! #robin #robins #birdsbutterfliesandblooms #natu Animal Illustrations, Fantasy Illustration, Illustrations Posters, Animal Drawings, Digital Illustration, Christian Traditions

A competition to be king of the birds was set. He who could fly the highest would be crowned. 🦅The eagle, was expected to win, he soared high above the other birds and appeared to be the clear winner, until the wren emerged from under his feathers and flew higher still to claim the crown! 💪   #bird_lovers_daily #nuts_abo Flor Magnolia, All Birds, Arts And Crafts Movement
