shell skiming by bolthound shell skiming by bolthound
after watching various mishaps and some spectacular falls and generally laughing his head off the crowd of griffins watching was constantly changing some coming some leaving, he had left at some point to go watch and participate in the mud wrestling getting his feathers covered. but now he was sitting letting the mud dry so it would cake off easier when Bellicose came and sat next to him they chatted about this and that with plenty of laughing mixed in. the number of griffins trying the shell skimming was dwindling so he tapped her with his wing. "i bet i can do better than you" posing a friendly challenge, not one too be insulted as such she playfully opened her wings in his face taking off to the pile of shells, addy following close behind. they grabbed the shells and went about chasing and racing up and down the beach reveling in the chance to behave like gryphlets again.


for #Windsonde's turtle festival

This is a really gorgeous piece. There's such motion to it, and the colours and lighting really bring you in. It's very believable, and looks like they're having a great time!
