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.”

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.

What Do You Think?

My photograph is entitled “What Do You Think?” We all have opinions and we are all entitled to diverse options. This bison looks like he is inviting you to talk and have a discussion. He has said his piece and now it is your turn. 

Let’s be civil and kind. Let’s be able to have a discussion by being compassionate and understanding. 

Overall, I love how this bison looks and I am proud of this picture.

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

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.

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.”
