A Run*A*Round Ranch Report: Giveaway Winner
Followers of texwisgirl (aka Theresa), author of The Run*A* Round Ranch Report, not only get to enjoy random rural photos from her home and near surrounds in Texas, but also very generous monthly giveaways, in the form of avian-art.
Alongwith many others, during the month of February, I 'threw my hat in the ring' hoping to win the latest drawing of a Great Blue Heron. Had listed my name many times over before this one also, but I was especially taken with the Heron, since Theresa had teamed up with heyBJK Outdoors another wonderful birding and nature blogger friend, on this one. Theresa had interpreted her drawing from one of Brian's photographs.
The big surprise came when I received an email to tell me I was the winner ... you could have knocked me over with a heron's feather! Yesterday my prize water-bird had completed its long flight from one side of the world to the other; from Texas to the east coast of Australia, in top condition.
Check out the drawings that Theresa has had up for grabs to date here, each already framed for the winner.
Thank-you Theresa for your beautiful gift; I so admire your creative artistry, and as a nature-lover, your Great Blue Heron will be especially cherished.
