Easily my favorite from the challenge. Reminds me of the pairing of the rhino and the birds that sit on it , to help clean it.

I can't believe that someone gave this a 1 and 3 people gave it a 3. Actually I don't see why this didn't ribbon.

Very cute and a great shot.

He was paid in accordance to the Basic minimum wage rule. However when the Deer found out how much the bird was getting with bonuses, he was not amused.

Awesome stuff Marac! Not only is the expression on the deer priceless, the placement of the bird and how they are 'helping' each other is obvious. Great finish and great work!
