IF: unfold / lelepleződik


the story behind this illo that my littlest little daughters' (monthly) favourites are turtle, ladybird and snail. they couldn't pronounce well the names of those aimals yet so they call turtle dual-frog - these words sound so similar than meaning of turtle in hungarian but it means that there could be some secret to hide under the shell... anyway: here's a dual-frog or a turtle-bird. it's time to unfold himself...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
legkisebbik kislányaim (e havi) kedvencei: a teknősbéka, a katicabogár és a csiga. mivel nem tudják még jól kiejteni ezeket a neveket, olyasmiket mondanak helyettük, hogy kettősbéka, ajiszaogá és... najó, a csiga megy nekik :) a kettősbéka kifejezés viszont már önmagában is rejteget valami felfedezésre váró, lappangó titkot a teknő alatt... szóval a mai képem témája, mindezek remixe: egy kettős életet élő ajiszaogá.
