Illustration Friday "Worry"




On Thursday morning I was greeted by the unfortunate sight of a red-eared slider who had met her demise in the violent spring storm the previous evening. I was saddened and my thoughts returned to her throughout the following days.
So for the topic "worry" I pay my respects to that turtle who never made it through the storm.

Nice work, as always. Before reading the captions, I thought the poor little things was just sleeping on a tenuously-balanced tower, ready to topple at any moment. I like it better asleep. Being an animal lover, it's hard to see any critter go down.

So sad, poor thing! I hate for any little animal to get hurt...it's so sweet that you memorialized him, bless his heart!
