Don’t Talk to Me

Don’t Talk To Me

Sometimes animals just don’t pose or want to be photographed so it is as if this little guy is saying “Don’t Talk to Me.”

I like the composition and also the continuation of browns and beiges.

Porcupine Quills

Porcupine Quills

This is a close-up of porcupine quills. I love to take close-ups especially of animals.

According to National Geographic, “Porcupines have soft hair, but on their back, sides, and tail it is usually mixed with sharp quills. … Porcupines cannot shoot them at predators as once thought, but the quills do detach easily when touched. Many animals come away from a porcupine encounter with quills protruding from their own snouts or bodies.”

Beloved Tiger

Beloved Tiger

I took this photograph of a tiger at a zoo. He is looking off into the distance.

I wrote this poem to go with the image. This is how I felt.

Beloved Tiger
by Mary Mikawoz (2020)

Off in a Distance
You Dream
Of Bygone Days
And Solitudes

Yet you Continue to Roam
In Your Mind
Of Distant Lands
Of Chasing Game
And Wildlife
Of Embracing Life

Your Path and Destiny has diverged
Once Upon a Time
To be Captive Here
For our Amusement
In this Human Zoo

Sorry for our Indulgences
Sorry for the captivity
One Day You Will be Free Again!

Keen Sense

Keen Sense

This beautiful and incredible mammal is reposing and relaxing on the green grass along some boulders. It was taken at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

According to the Internet,”Polar bears have a keen sense of smell, which they use to find prey. A polar bear can sniff out a seal on the ice 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, and can smell a seal’s breathing hole in the ice more than half a mile away, according to the National Zoo.”

I See You

I See You

I See You

What can I say? These are Hereford cattle. I like the way the cows are looking back at me. They seemed to be as intrigued with me as I am of them. I think the Hereford is a beautiful cattle. As they nibble the grasses and enjoy being on the open range, they seem to be enjoying themselves. I like the composition of three against the hilly background.

Sculpted Antlers

Sculpted Antlers

Here is a beautiful view of sculpted antlers that nature has made. It is just perfectly made.

Wikipedia indicates: “Antlers are extensions of an animal’s skull found in members of the deer family. Antlers are true bone and are a single structure. They are generally found only on males, with the exception of the reindeer/caribou. Antlers are shed and regrown each year and function primarily as objects of sexual attraction and as weapons in fights between males for control of harems.”

Elk Calf

Elk Calf

Elk babies are called calves and weigh around 31 to 35 lbs. (14 to 16 kg) when they are born. After just 20 minutes, a calf can stand on its own.

According to Wikipedia, “The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America and Northeast Asia.”

Reposing Tiger

This tiger is reposing – enjoying his time in his loft at the zoo. I believe he is an Amur tiger from the Russian Far East. He looks deep in thought. The picture is nicely framed by some trees.
