As the end-of-May deadline for Little Bear contributions approaches, we all sat down to sketch and draw creatures that appeal to us. Some members flipped through bird books, one used a field-trip image on Rob’s laptop as his model, and Rachel called up a picture on her smart-phone. Niccolo drew his subject from life — he had brought in bunch of Gypsy Moth eggs that had begun to hatch, and examined the tiny caterpillars under a dissecting microscope.

Our artwork will appear in issue number 71 of our annual publication, which will be distributed at the annual party at the end of June.
