Saboteur

I drew the “Saboteur” based on the teachings of Keith MacPherson in a course called “Making Sense of Mindfulness” – https://www.keithmacpherson.ca 

The Saboteur for me is an entity that prevents me from creating when I want to. It is the fear-based ego-mind that stops me right in my tracks from moving forward with my ideas and inspirations to create. 

It has three heads with its own eyes which, for me, represents the past, present and future. Each time period, has its own way of creating tension in the way of regrets (past), fears (present) and anxieties (future). 

The middle eye in the body is like the evil eye of Sauron from J.R.R. Tolkien’s book “Lord of the Rings.” 

The thing about my Saboteur is that he is kind of whimsical and mystical and can be beaten at his own game as he does not have any arms or hands to fight back with. I can prevail and create. I can write more books, take more beautiful photographs and create images of artwork from India Ink drawings, abstract painting, computer design and digital art.

Brown Eyes

This is a photograph of a red fox with beautiful brown eyes and gorgeous red fur coat. I took the photo in the Interlake area which is north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He was not seemingly too scared of us. He walked along and even opened his mouth which I think is interesting and I wonder why. I know that cats open their mouths off to use their sense of smell – Jacobson’s organ. 

According to National Geographic, the Vulpes Vulpes or “Red foxes are solitary hunters who feed on rodents, rabbits, birds, and other small game—but their diet can be as flexible as their home habitat. Foxes will eat fruit and vegetables, fish, frogs, and even worms. If living among humans, foxes will opportunistically dine on garbage and pet food.”

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.

Golden Eyes

I was able to get close to this tiger through the benefit of a glass partition. He was just relaxing and enjoying life. He is absolutely majestic and gorgeous. He has such golden eyes so that is what I have called this photograph.

Peak-a-Boo

Here is a little, brown, burrowing owl. It is just peaking out from the leaves as if to say “Peak-A-Boo.” It is spectacular in its own way.

Giraffe Close-up

I love to see animals close-up. This is a giraffe’s face and head. I think his spots are ever so nice. This was taken at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove BC.

Bear Head

This is a close-up of a polar bear head. I love the way his eyes are barely open and his tongue is just visible. “The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a hypercarnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.” Wikipedia.

ET Face in Tree

I like to look at things and possibly see things that might be special.  This is a photo of a tree with moss on it.  The part that is interesting to me is that there seems to be a face, an ET face, protruding from the tree.  I see the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and throat.  Can you see it?

Solo Bald Eagle

This is one of the best photos I have of a solo Bald Eagle.  The background was just perfect.  I also like the way the plumage is gently flying in the air.  Its beak is perfect for what he needs to do.  The eye is piercing.  Love this photo and the detail.

Did you know that both sexes of bald eagles have the same colouring for plumage?  The difference is that the female is actually a bit larger.  Eagles have excellent eyesight.  “They have two foveae or centers of focus, that allow the birds to see both forward and to the side at the same time.”

Pacific Jellyfish

Pacific Jellyfish

This is a photo of Pacific Sea Nettle Jellyfish.  They have been roaming the seas for anywhere from 500 to 700 million years.  They move elegantly with their gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell bodies and flowing tentacles.  They dance as if to music and I was quite mesmerized by them.  They range in size from 1 millimeter to 2 meters in size for their bodies.  Their nerve net system is in their epidermis.  Some jellyfish are light-sensitive through something called ocelli while some jellyfish have up to 24 eyes, 2 of which can see colour.  As you can see, there is quite a range.  They also have a life-cycle going from polyps to the medusa stage.
