I'm not sure why birds keep showing up in my digital collages--I guess I have quite a few images of them, and they do add some life and movement to the composition. This collage started with a photo that my son Ryan took in China (or maybe Tibet), of a poppy with mountains in the background.(Thanks for the use of the photo, Ryan!) I added the stone wall, more poppy petals, birds, and the nest and spilling eggs. I also applied various special effects, including a "pointillizing" effect as a final touch. I think I need a name for it, but don't have one yet. Suggestions are welcome!
