) and Wendy (www.flickr.com/photos/84702583@N00/) and I went to the Australian Museum in Sydney for the day. We went to the education room which has lots of "hands on" animal models and specimens to look at and use,. Much better than drawing through a glass case. We could take the specimens to a table to draw and turn it around to an angle that suited us. I am going to join as a member of the Museum as I will be going back for more of this.
Here is a flying fox (fruit bat) . There are hundreds of them in the Botanic Gardens, but you would never get this close to a real one.
