Artist's Description

We caught this amazing sight later in the morning, huge air creatures slowly heading out to sea in formation, it took some time to find and observe the next flock, but they also seem to transport passengers. They hold to a schedule, landing in the middle of the island periodically where hundreds of assorted smaller beings have been waiting to hurry aboard, then slowly ascend as a group and deliver their charges to another place, like commuters!
Below is a shot of some kind of miniature moisture delivery creatures, they perch on the rocks down by the water’s edge, and condense moisture out of the air in their funnels, then they spin their little propellers and lift off:


These tiny fliers are small as hummingbirds, and whey they ‘copter to their designated shrubs, they start spinning their bodies until the moisture they’ve collected starts to spray out the top, and sprinkle onto the plants around them. They go back to the water’s edge, wait until they’re refilled, and proceed to find the next grove scheduled to be watered. The sounds they make are quite harmonious, like they’re all humming the same song while they work!
Here is the rest of the series:
