Hibernation event drawing #2.This drawing was inspired by the following poem by Rick Barnes.

Pushing on through winter sky,
Faithful, they fly side by side...
Their journey has been long this far
And they've just begun their wide
Sweeping trek across frozen land.
Just the two of them, mate and mate
Struggling onward, guarding doubt,
They dare not think,
"We left too late..."
