Didn't get to see enough of the marsh harrier to draw much detail. But it's a majestic bird and the top predator of the reed beds. I saw it four times in flight from no more than 10m away, flying low over the lake. A real thrill to see one.
Trespassing here to give thumbs up for these sketches and the kingfisher painted glass. If I was any good at drawing I'd do birds exclusively, they are a neverending source of inspiration. That grebe sketch is great, instantly recognizable. Keep it up.

The grebe made me work for it. All the others I drew while sitting on a bench by the lake. The grebe was on the river nearby and was diving for fish. He disappear and reappear 30m down river. I was chasing after him, sketchbook in hand. Worth it though when he came up with a fish. And they're beautiful birds.

Good to see you! Hope you are well and healthy... now that borders are open again, I am planning my hike to the top of Triglav again

Except for the terrible political situation everything safe and sound over here. Beginning my summer school break from tomorrow on! Almost 2 months of bliss.

Triglav is overrated. You should just go have lunch with me in Kranjska Gora.:LOL:

it may be, but it's the highest peak of the Julian Alps and I want to get on top of it... ideally, we wanted to start from Mangart and climb our way in 3-4 days camping on the way... but probably we will just spend one night at the 7 lakes valley before climbing up...

as for lunch together... any time, after 10 years of living 1 hour apart, it's about time I guess

This sounds like an accusation.😏 Where do you live again? Pordenone? Tarvisio?

well, it's mutual if we haven't met.

I live in Pordenone, but I should be sometimes in Dogna as I haven't been at all since COVID lockdown and I love my house in the mountains... I really should work less 😂

i mean, why is everyone expecting a statement
someone like Federer or Nadal just came up with Girlfriend in the stands, and so teveryone knew "it´s his Girlfriend"
he didn´t need to state "I´m straight"
so a lesbian or gay player/person shouldn´t need to come out, just live it, and everyone should get it without "i´m gay" statement

I totally agree with you... also, in general, I know a sports person is a public figure, but I am pretty much in favour of the "it's their personal life" line. It's on them to decide what to share and what not
