Illustrated Recipe: Lassi



Lassi is a old drink made with yogurt and water. It is a cooling drink when no spice is added. The addition of spices give it a restorative quality. I drew the illustration on a Kraft paper using black and white gel pens. The black pen worked well on the paper but the white pen only so so.

Last weekend, my husband and I did some bird watching at the Conowingo dam in Darlington, Maryland. It was a mild fall day with cloudless blue skies and much of the coppery foliage still intact. Lucky for us, the turbines at the dam ran for several hours. An interesting fact about the dam is that when the turbines run and as the water and the fish spew out, the fish float on the surface making them an easy prey for the birds.The dam is a popular hunting ground for piscivorous  birds. The star attraction is bald eagles but gulls, cormorants, herons and vultures are common. It is a popular spot for outdoor photographers looking for opportunities to take dramatic pictures of eagles diving down the water and sweeping up with a fish in its clutches. I caught a few moments like that myself. 







































Thanks for visiting.
