Birds

I started creating different kinds of fish already sometime in elementary school and I will probably always be attracted to their wonderful scales and shapes. Fish scales can easily turn into feathers and maybe that is why I’m so found of birds. I love watching the seagulls and the magpies fighting to get into a ketchup container, the jackdaw who is walking with the wings on his back locking in a different direction each time he takes a new step - not to mention the peacock who recently escaped from her owner and decided to move into my neighbourhood. Peacocks are not what you generally see on the street here in Göteborg but somehow she seemed to like her new neighbours as much as we liked her.
