Scarlet Macaw

This photograph was taken at the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia. You can see the unique patterning of the skylights in the background.

According to Wikipedia, “The scarlet macaw (Ara macao) is a large red, yellow, and blue Central and South American parrot, a member of a large group of Neotropical parrots called macaws. It is native to humid evergreen forests of tropical Central and South America.”

Licking

Licking

As all cats do, this tiger is licking and cleaning himself. They have a built in system for it. Cats clean and lubricate themselves in this manner.

I love the pink tongue and reminds me of my cat as he cleans himself. It is something beautiful to watch and soothing too. They seem to get much enjoyment out of it. Cleaning themselves is a way of also calming themselves down.

Snake Skin

This is an abstract image of my interpretation of a snake skin shedding off of its host. It has a flow and design as made by God and nature. It is natural and part of the life cycle.

Wild Horses

These are wild horses in the deserts of Arizona near Mesa. They are absolutely beautiful amongst the natural vegetation of the area. I like the way two of them are resting while one is standing tall and proud.

My Way

My Way

“Are you going my way?” says the Mandrill. He is headed on a journey.

According to National Geographic,”Mandrills are the largest of all monkeys. They are shy and reclusive primates that live only in the rain forests of equatorial Africa. Mandrills are extremely colorful, perhaps more so than any other mammal. They are easily identifiable by the blue and red skin on their faces and their brightly hued rumps.”

Woe is Me!

Mikawoz Woe is Me

Woe Is Me

This is actually a white-handed gibbon. I made the image black and white and then added a brownish hue to it. He looks a bit sullen to me and so that it is why I called it “Woe is Me!”

According to National Geographic, “White-handed gibbons are small tailless apes with soft, thick fur. They live in trees and li ke to stay high up in the canopy of trees. Their very long arms allow them to swing effortlessly among the tree branches. They can also change direction in a split second, and can catch birds in midair and eat them after landing.”

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

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!
