World Tiger

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.

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.

Double Big Horn Sheep

I really like the way the two Big Horn Sheep are pretty much camouflaged with the brown background. They are stoic even as they sit eloquently on the ground. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest.

Licking

Licking

As all cats do, this tiger is licking and cleaning himself. They have a built in system for it. Cats clean and lubricate themselves in this manner.

I love the pink tongue and reminds me of my cat as he cleans himself. It is something beautiful to watch and soothing too. They seem to get much enjoyment out of it. Cleaning themselves is a way of also calming themselves down.

Green and Yellow Striped

Green And Yellow Striped

This is a green and yellow striped snake wound up and twisted onto itself. It was taken at the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona, USA. It is interesting how most of its body is coiled onto itself but that its tail dangles below.

Freedom Eagles

Freedom Eagles

I took the photo of the Bald Eagle near Teulon, Manitoba. Some say, it looks like a Robert Bateman. I have added my abstract image of a colourful eagle on the right-hand side. It was in mixed media of coloured ink wells with traditional pens and also coloured pens. I combined both of my elements in the computer.

The eagle is a symbol of freedom and indpendence for many nations including the USA, Russia and Poland, among others.

As a note, I uploaded this image many years ago but accidentally deleted it.

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.

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!

Keen Sense

Keen Sense

This beautiful and incredible mammal is reposing and relaxing on the green grass along some boulders. It was taken at the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

According to the Internet,”Polar bears have a keen sense of smell, which they use to find prey. A polar bear can sniff out a seal on the ice 20 miles (32 kilometers) away, and can smell a seal’s breathing hole in the ice more than half a mile away, according to the National Zoo.”

Are You There?

Mikawoz Are You There

Are You There?

Are you there? I can sense you but are you really there? You have your back to me and I don’t see you.

These two ostriches are busy ignoring each other while eating. It is kind of like modern society where entire families or groups of people are ignoring each other at a meal while being on their cell phones. They are present but are they really “present?”

Hide and Seek

Hide And Seek

Yes, these pink flamingos are playing “hide and seek.” It is nice to see that animals and birds play games just like humans. Ok, I am kidding. It does look like one could be counting with the help of the duck and the others are hiding. Seriously though, they are amazing how they can crank their necks like that. Plus, did you know they process their foods in their mouths upside-down? Interesting! Love their rose colouring against the dark background.
