Falcon
Bob Welle and his falcon. Bob showed me his falcon stooping (diving through the air) on prey, so that I could describe Skava's dive in Flight of the Dragon Kyn.

Nimbus
While I was writing Dragon’s Milk, our kitten, Nimbus, sat in my lap, purring and kneading my legs with her claws. Not coincidentally, the draclings thrum in their throats and knead Kaeldra’s legs with their talons.
Camel
At Camelot Lodge, Moab, Utah. This is Clyde, who helped me understand Ziba, the camel who carries Mitra and Babak across ancient Persia in Alphabet of Dreams.
