  6. HEY HEY HEY back the face with a pointy nose!
    I love that character!
    you have a language, the artichoke's language. is a good graphic language !!!!.

    (Sometimes I feel that I am the worm, the bird character is far from me, all my life someone has taken a piece of me in one bite)

  9. Thanks, people , for your words!

    @TRod: didn't you know I am running a worm transport company ?

    @ Roberto: long noses- (it is secret, but my nose looks similar as on the picture!)

    @Ted: Hand brake is not a helpful feature for birds. (they do not have hands anyway) :D

  11. Oh, I absolutely love this!! Go worms!! I've never heard the poem either.

    Do you know this one?

    A bird came down the walk:
    He did not know I saw;
    He bit an angle-worm in halves
    And ate the fellow raw....

  12. Of course I must root for the worm because of his underdog status, but on the other hand, I don't wish starvation for the twin birdlings. I like to imagine a nice bird-feeder around the corner so there's a happy ending for all.

  13. @Rene : thanks, but autumn has also its magic !!

    @Curious : good poem! Actually this one fits better ! Is it a poem from you?
    Yes, it it always a dilemma ; worm or birdies? But indeed, around the corner ( not seen on the picture) is a fast food restaurant for birds, called Fast Beccus !!
