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.

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.

Pelicano

Pelicano 

I took the original photograph of the Pelicano and then created an artwork from it. I love the pelicans that I see on Lake Winnipeg and water areas. My husband and I have always affectionately called these birds, Pelicanos, not realizing that that is the Spanish word for them.  

According to the What’s Your Sign website, “Pelicans are symbols of love, sacrifice and motherhood. This has to do with legends about pelicans giving their own blood and life in order to save their offspring. Pelicans remind us how self-sacrifice is often required in order to protect who and what we love.”

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.

White Arctic Wolf

White Arctic Wolf

I took this photo of this beautiful White Arctic Wolf at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

According to the City of Edmonton website, “Arctic wolves are well adapted to survive subzero temperatures, up to five months of darkness and weeks without food. To blend in with their surroundings, they are usually white with grey or brown undertones.”

Wild West

Here is an image of free range buffalo or bison in the Wild West of Canada. They are roaming freely across the grassy foothills of the mountains. It is part of the Bison Paddock Road in Waterton Lakes National Park. I like the way the scenery is composed by nature.
