I love using animals in my art. Our fellow creatures have held endless fascination for me since childhood. So of course I wanted to participate in Theme Thursday's "Animals" challenge. While looking through the wonderful vintage images in Jim Harter's Animals: 1419 Copyright Free Illustrations from Dover Publications, I came across the stunning little fellow above. He wasn't holding anything in those spongy fingers, but clearly, he was meant to. He is called a Tarsier, lives in trees in southeast Asia, and eats insects. This particular one also likes to bird watch. With those eyes, maybe the binoculars are redundant.
