Read Description & Click Link For More!

This is a Mixed Media creation of imagery including a Tiger, Whirlpool Galaxy and Cyclones on Earth. Together they form an incredible imagery of the magnificence of the world including the majestic tiger.

Personally, I love the combination of imagery as it is magnificent, balanced and takes you to another world of perception. 

Tiger photograph was taken by me at the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona, USA.

Whirlpool Galaxy from NASA image – “The image from NASA Hubble Telescope shows spiral arms and dust clouds in the nearby Whirlpool galaxy. Visible starlight and light from the emission of glowing hydrogen is seen, which is associated with the most luminous young stars in the spiral arms.”

Planet Earth was also taken by NASA.

Hope you like the creation.

Craven

Craven

This is what my husband and I, affectionately, call these birds: “Cravens.” It is actually a combination between the words, Crows and Ravens. They are so similar in appearance that we combine the names into one name, “Cravens” There is a difference between the two though. 

According to the Audubon Website, “These two species, Common Ravens and American Crows, overlap widely throughout North America, and they look quite similar. But with a bit of practice, you can tell them apart.” 

Further they write, “You probably know that ravens are larger, the size of a Red-tailed Hawk. Ravens often travel in pairs, while crows are seen in larger groups.” 

As well, “Listen closely to the birds’ calls. Crows give a cawing sound. But ravens produce a lower croaking sound…While crows caw and purr, ravens croak and scream bloody murder.” 

In flight, “Ravens ride the thermals and soar, whereas crows do more flapping.” 

I took this photograph in the Interlake area where the Cravens were hanging out near some Bald Eagles. I was able to get a pretty good close-up of the Craven. In some cultures, crows and ravens are seen as magical messengers from the Divine.

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!

Majestic

Majestic

This is a photograph I took of a tiger. He is Majestic – Master of his Destiny and Fate in the wilds.  

Some interesting facts about tigers from Ranthaborne National Park website in Rajasthan, India: 

1. Tiger cubs are born blind and only half of the cubs survive 
2. Tigers love to swim and play in the water 
3. Tigers live for about 25 years 
4. Tigers can mate with other big cats 
5. Tiger stripes are also found on their skin

Bothered by Burrs

I took this close-up photograph of a bison. He is looking intently back at me. I thought the bison was covered in regular grasses from manoeuvring his head in the fields and that is sort of true. On closer examination, there are burrs which stick onto the body, fur and clothes. 

I remember as a little girl running through a relative’s farm fields and being so intrigued by these spikey flowery-things only to be horrified when I touched them and they stuck into my fingers and would not let go. I thought “What are these cruel things that look so fascinating and interesting doing?” The thistle hung on and the more I tried to make it come off, the more it stuck into my skin. 

In this picture, the head of the bison has burrs on it, as well as on its sides. The bisons do sometimes roll around on the ground and get covered in this way. As my husband would say, “It is a Beast of Burr-den.”

Glowing Tiger

Glowing Tiger

This is a photograph I took of a tiger walking on by. He is amazing as all tigers and mammalian animals are.  

I have put in an effect to highlight the tiger’s stripes as they glow with beauty. I like the multi-coloured effect to showcase its magnificence and its utter perfection. I hope you like it.

Cute Dolphin

Cute Dolphin

I was thinking of how much I like to travel to new places around the world. It doesn’t look like we will be able to do so this year due to the corona virus pandemic. 

This is a photograph I took of a cute Bottlenose dolphin in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It is adorable. She looks like she is smiling and enjoying life. 

According to Wikipedia, “Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin, the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, and the Burrunan dolphin.”

White as Snow

White as Snow

This parrot is standing stoically on a branch amidst the greenery. He is “white as snow.” He seems to be happy and content. I like the way he is so elegant and has such beautiful plumage. 

The photograph was taken at Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website, “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

Canada Goose Fountain

Canada Goose Fountain

I like the Canada Geese playing and frolicking in front of the fountain. I have made it black and white to make it more interesting. This picture was taken only a few weeks ago but the fountain has been already closed down due to dropping temperatures and because of the recent snow already. 

There were still Canada geese at the Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park yesterday when I went for my walk. I do not know why the few stragglers have not flown south for the winter. They should be going soon.

Two Tiny Turtles

Two Tiny Turtles

These two turtles are not the smallest I have ever seen. They were actually approximately 6 to 9 inches in length but relative to tortoises, they are tiny. They were climbing all over each other. I have made this image into black and white because I like seeing the textures and designs of the turtle shells. I also like the way the light plays in the picture. I took this image in Mexico. 

According to Wikipedia, “Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines. They are characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. “Turtle” may refer to the order as a whole or to fresh-water and sea-dwelling Testudines. Testudines includes both extant and extinct species.”
