Although I rarely get to experience mist up close these days – the most I usually get is a little haze over the Salton Sea in the mornings – nevertheless sometimes I am inspired by the subtle clouds in leftover pieces of watercolor, to create a misty scene.  And as mist usually hangs around water, what better subject to add than a few birds.  In this collage I added two water birds – they could be geese but are too small to be specific – and thought about how many species of birds will mate for life.

The foliage in my collage looks more like Finney-Ramer Lake, which is just south of the Salton Sea.  Must make a point of taking some time to go wander around there in the not too distant future….  see what the birds are up to!
