Description: The types of nuts, leaves, and flowers that are grown on trees are pretty cool. One of the most popular nut that is grown on a tree is the acorn. These nuts grow on the branches of the Oak trees and they are sometimes called an “oak nut”. You would think that such a small nut in a hard shell really doesn’t do much good right? Wrong, the acorn plays a very important part in the diets of various animals like squirrels, different types of birds like blue jays, pigeons, and even a few ducks. Did you know that bears, deer and other larger animals also feed on acorns? This is a true fact, acorns are not only for small animals. In fact they are consumed by bears and deer as well as pigs. These animals sometimes depend on acorns for 25% of their diet. This next tutorial that I am about to submit is going to be on “how to draw an acorn” step by step. When the tops fall off of acorns they can be used to make a whistle if you place them right in between your two thumb knuckles. This is going to be a relatively easy lesson to follow and you will see that when you are done with this tutorial your drawing skills on “how to draw a acorn” will be heightened to perfection. I will be back later, but I have to go right now because there is much more work to be done. Adios amigos!
