Wonderful photos Federico. You must have your camera at the ready most of the time. Thanks very much for hosting. Not sure which one I will choose - not too keen on the shark. Eeek. But then I don't like going to the dentist either.

Hi there Elsa... welcome to the challenge you can select as many as you want! Just wait until the 20th to show us your work

Thanks Viv, Chammi and KK.. I take many pictures, and then select some of them... from the thousands must be at least one descent..no?
Hope you enjoy painting them...

Poor sharks they are for sure having a big issue with their image. Chammi don't worry about the Dr. Shark, he is not a dentist, is a surgeon. Statistics say he has less victims per year that any of their Medical colleagues. So better to go to Dr. Shark than to get your general checkup.

I think is an egret. Pretty common here in Germany. I see them every day.

Great selection of images Federico, thank you for hosting this month. The bird is a white stork.

I'll do my best to join in this month (do I say this every month?). I've chosen an image and I hope I have time to finish something!
