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.

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.

Valentine Rose

Here is a beautiful red rose from me to you! I have left the essential rouge colour as it is and took out the green background to make it black and white. I love what you can do with computer design nowadays.

It was taken at the Rose Garden in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Perfection

Perfection

This rose is absolutely perfect existing in this world as a beautiful flower. It is not alone as there are other roses growing with it on a bush. It has soft droplets of water on it because of the dew in the air.

Balcony Love

Here is a silhouette of a couple in love enjoying the sunset in Waikiki part of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. They are on their balcony seeing the last remnants of the night sky turn a beautiful orange and yellow hue into the night sky as the sun disappears behind the horizon.

Beauty Amongst Deadwood

I love the flow of the wood in the lower left-hand quadrant as it once had lived and now has died. I enjoy the fact that despited that new flowers are growing once again amongst the deadwood bringing new life.

The photograph was taken in the Interlake Region of Manitoba just west of Riverton.

Statuesque

This is a photograph of a beautiful, white heron in water showing off his profile.

According to All About Birds Organization, “Statuesque, stately, and elegantly plumaged, with long necks and long legs, herons rank among our most conspicuous and beautiful birds. They use their long, sharp bills to stab at fish, frogs, or large insects while gracefully wading through estuarine shallows, ponds, marshes, and ditches.”

Porcupine Quills

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!

Happenstance

Mikawoz Happenstance

Happenstance

I was just walking along in a park when I looked down and saw the beautiful arrangement of an oak leaf and acorns on the pathway. It was as if someone had intentionally put it there to be just in perfect balance and harmony. It is nature against a man-made backdrop. “From the beginning seed of a small acorn, will grow a magnificent oak tree which started out with humble beginnings with dreams and aspirations of greatness.” Quote by Mary Mikawoz.
