Mom and Son

Mom and Son

Today is a special day in that it is my son’s birthday. I have chosen this photograph of two bison as it represents the Mom who is nearby whereas her son is exploring the world around him. It is representative of me and my son. He is, in fact, a fully grown and a good man but I will always be his Mom. 

Happy Birthday to my son Kyle!

Painted Horse

Painted Horse

This is a photograph I took of a beautiful Painted Horse in its beautiful surroundings. I like his stance as it is really stoic. 

It reminds me of the song from America called “A Horse with No Name” and written by Dewey Bunnell in the early 1970s. 

“I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name 
It felt good to be out of the rain 
In the desert, you can remember your name 
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain 
La, la, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, la 
La, la, la, la-la-la, la-la-la, la, la” 

According to Wikipedia, “The American Paint Horse (Equus caballus) is a breed of horse that combines both the conformational characteristics of a western stock horse with a pinto spotting pattern of white and dark coat colors.”

Bambi II

Bambi II

I find all deer adorable and yet stunningly beautiful. This one is called Bambi II because I highlighted another one earlier on. This one is more like the Disney version with the light brown fur and little horns starting off. 

I like his huge black eyes and his black little nose. I like how big his ears are and how he is attentively listening to his environment. 

According to Canadian Geographic, “The deer is a great jumper and runner. It can reach speeds of up to 58 kilometres per hour (36 miles per hour). Like a cow, the white-tailed deer’s stomach has four compartments. This allows food to be processed more efficiently and means that the deer can feed on things that other mammals cannot process.” 

This was taken in the Jasper and Banff area of Alberta.

Checking You Out

Checking You Out

Somehow, I get the feeling that these iguanas are checking me out. I don’t know what gives me that idea other than I have three heads and three eyes staring back at me. They seem to be on alert status. 

This is a photograph that I took in Hawaii. I like the way these reptiles are camouflaged very well with their background. 

According to Vetstreet, “Although they don’t actually use verbal language to communicate, iguanas talk to each other through head bobbing and through movement of the flap of skin under their necks — called a dewlap. Iguanas will extend their dewlaps to say hello to each other or as a sign of being territorial.”

Pelicano

Pelicano 

I took the original photograph of the Pelicano and then created an artwork from it. I love the pelicans that I see on Lake Winnipeg and water areas. My husband and I have always affectionately called these birds, Pelicanos, not realizing that that is the Spanish word for them.  

According to the What’s Your Sign website, “Pelicans are symbols of love, sacrifice and motherhood. This has to do with legends about pelicans giving their own blood and life in order to save their offspring. Pelicans remind us how self-sacrifice is often required in order to protect who and what we love.”

Boss Man

This is a profile photograph of the head of a male dominant bison of the herd. He is absolutely huge just like a offensive or defensive lineman in football. He is strong and majestic. 

His head is large and his horns are powerful just in case he needs them. 

According to the US Department of the Interioir, “Male bison (called bulls) weigh up to 2,000 pounds and stand 6 feet tall, while females (called cows) weigh up to 1,000 pounds and reach a height of 4-5 feet.”

Manitoba Bison

Manitoba Bison

This is a photograph I took of the master bison of the herd. He was definitely the largest and the most dominant. He led the other bison on a rampage towards me as they thought I had food for them. 

This image reminds me of the University of Manitoba Bison symbol and logo. Even though I am alma mater to several Universities and Colleges across Canada, my biggest connection is as alumna to the University of Manitoba. 

I love this bison because he is majestic, strong and perfect.

Chimpanzee

Chimpanzee – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Chimpanzee

I took this photograph of this chimpanzee sauntering along in nature and captured him framed with beautiful pink flowers around him. It was taken at the Honolulu Zoo in Waikiki, Hawaii. 

According to the Honolulu Zoo Website, an interesting fact is that “Chimpanzees and bonobos are equally humanity’s closest living relatives. As such, they are among the largest-brained, and most intelligent of primates.” 

Also, “The Common chimpanzee occupies a broad range compared to the bonobo and can be found in 21 African countries. They are found north of the River Congo in humid closed-canopy forests, montane forest (up to 6,500 ft.), seasonally dry forests and savanna-woodlands.”

White Wolves

White Wolves – Black and White Photography by Mary Mikawoz

White Wolves

This is a photograph of two white wolves I took. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff, Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest. It is just south of the Grand Canyon and north of Phoenix. I like they are relaxing after having feasted.

I Bow to You

I Bow to You – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

I Bow to You

I took this photograph in the Canadian National Parks around Jasper and Banff, Alberta. This young elk is saying “I Bow to You.” Out of reverence for the Divine, he makes notice of the greater powers of this Universe. He is serene and majestic. He is enjoying nature as we all could. His eyes are closed as he seems to meditate and contemplate the bigger picture of life and gives thanks for his wonderful world.
