2008 update: To some of my old watchers - sorry for the repeat. I've reloaded 'Columbus' with my new watermark, huzzah! Long live the lil' squirrel.

If you like Columbus - you might like some of my other critter pics:

EDIT: Oh....WOW!! :faint: I just woke up and discovered that Columbus is perched there amongst the DD's... THANK YOU!!!! That is so awesome. Viva la squirrel!!!

----------------------------

Artist's Notes: I've had this picture in my mind for quite awhile. As a child, my treasured stuffed animal (as all children tend to have) was a little squirrel who went on every kind of adventure with me, and my favorite story was about a lil' squirrel named "Miss Suzy" - written by Miriam Young, and illustrated by Arnold Lobel.

I love the thought of the tiny leaf-boat capturing the attention of the denizens of the pond as it passes by en route to a wonderous place.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-02-15
Columbus by *Foxfires. An absolutely adorable deviation, reminds me of something akin to the movie "Milo and Otis." ( Suggested by OtakuEC and Featured by fourteenthstar )
