Hahaha, yaaay! :D As I said on Twitter, you did her great justice! :D She looks really awesome and cute and I love the little debris that is knocked up in her wake. he details on the town look great too, a sleepy village like that is the perfect setting! :D This is just so many kinds of lovely - thanks a lot! :D
Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.
From the most awesome road trip EVER! 8D The roommates, Meister Li, Petey, and I all piled into a nice rental car and went to Roswell (as cheesy and fun as we could have hoped), Carlsbad Caverns!!! (OMG, freaking amazing! And super blind friendly! 8O ), an awesome space museum, White Sands, and…
Fantastic and fun trip 11/10 would trip again.
Seriously tho, this was just a ton of fun and I really enjoyed my dorky time with everyone! :D
