APPLE-EATING EAGLES
by Kelsea T

This tessellation shows translational (slide) symmetry.

The "tile" (tile = repeating shape) is very neatly, precisely reproduced and fits with all the other tiles perfectly, without gaps or overlaps. That's what a proper tessellation does.

If I offer any constructive criticism, it's this: I wish the artist had tweaked the outlines so that the feet would be more like feet.
