Very nice Harriet, have you ever thought about more unusual species? Since I looked at the rhino I always wonder why no one does Javan or Sumatran rhinos. There are so many different species that will never make it as a brand name figure but still would be fantastic for a collection. There are species like those that are just sort of a wish list of species that I would love to see for collectors.

Thanks Phil. I know, it would be fun to try out a Javan Rhino and calf. I did this Black Rhino calf to go with the Bullyland one, which is for my zoo diorama I'm planning. Yes there are loads of unusual species to make, so many I don't know where to begin.
I'd like to make some birds, I've made a Brown Pelican, just need to paint it. I'd like to try out a female Ostrich!

Thank you Mihnea!!! cheers

Thank you Susanne!!! cheers

Yes, Brown Pelicans are still around today! I get the national geographic magazine monthly and last month, one article was about the oil spill into the sea, about that oil-rig that blew up. The people that are trying to clean the shores found many birds, Brown pelicans, covered with oil. They saved one which was almost dead. That's what moved me to make one, I felt so sorry for all the poor creatures out there.

You can also find brown pelicans off the coast of Florida. I find them much prettier than the white. Of course brown can hide the dirt better than white. :)

Harriet it is a lovely little fella. I was watching a short video about a male rhino being very aggressive and mean with a rhino female and he chased her into a deep water area, stabbing her with his horn and knocked her over. She had a baby up on the bank. She was real in trouble and next thing you know her baby who was on the bank in the bushes (comparable size to the one you made Harriet so still little) ran into the water and poked the male rhino so that it was startled and the big male ran out of the pond/water area with the little rhino chasing him away! It was amazing! The little one was so brave and the big one was so mean!

Well, in fact, here's the link: but be sure to watch it to the end...it has a happy ending! (Ignore the kitty litter ad :) )

Thank you so much everyone cheers I'm really happy you liked it! cheers

Sergey, I made this out of clay, "sculpt dry" by Mungyo.

Thanks for the film Sue, the poor mother! Didn't look like she was too badly hurt though! The baby was so sweet, so funny watching it chase the male off Laughing

Harriet your "child" is gorgeous. Such a small "słodziaczek" (a Polish diminutive saying about cute little living creature), as they say my daughter. Big applause.

Your new avatar is fantastic. The same woodpecker often accompanied us this winter while taking pictures on trips. How did the pictures - "Photo story of my journey" - it's our heads flew us to the effects of his work.
