Beautiful Moment in Nature

Everybuggy loved the quiet scene of the mother turtle returning to the sea on our cover. And they were just awwww-struck by her intrepid baby hatchlings breaking out of their nest in the moonlight. Artists have long been inspired by the tender, beautiful, and surprising moments in nature. For this month’s contest, everybuggy would love to see your best art of a beautiful moment in nature.

Will you draw a tender scene between an animal baby and its mother or father, or imagine a lively family of furry brothers and sisters at play? Will you capture a glimpse of a rare and endangered species of animal, or a flower or insect? Perhaps your art will take you to a remote part of the world to draw a serene and fragile landscape. Or maybe you will find your beautiful moment right in your own backyard.

Whether it’s a sunrise over the sea, a snowy mountaintop, or funny animal antics, everybuggy in Cricket Country will be gathered around the mailbox, waiting to be awww-struck by your best art of a beautiful moment in nature.
