"what a beauty"


"Wow my friend would love this"


"Is all his work related to wildlife now that he is in New Zealand? Or is it just that iGoogle's choices of his work are these two owls. They are beautiful and I can see the challenges of creating these pieces, however I would have preferred to see something completely different as the second selection."
