Tree And Me

This is a blue-grey bird balancing on a log in the water. This photograph was taken in the Honolulu Zoo in Hawaii, USA. I love the matching blues and greys in the bird and the water.

I can’t say much about this bird because I have not been able to identify it. Sorry, if anyone knows, please add a comment and I will update this post.

“Are you going my way?” says the Mandrill. He is headed on a journey.

According to National Geographic,”Mandrills are the largest of all monkeys. They are shy and reclusive primates that live only in the rain forests of equatorial Africa. Mandrills are extremely colorful, perhaps more so than any other mammal. They are easily identifiable by the blue and red skin on their faces and their brightly hued rumps.”

There are actually two tortoises. There is another one behind the front one. This picture was taken at the Honolulu Zoo in Hawaii.

According to the SoftSchools.com, “Turtles and tortoises are closely related. They are both reptiles from the same family (Testudines or Chelonian). The main difference between the two is that turtle is the name given to water-dwellers and tortoise is the name given to land-dwellers.”

Further they say, “Their life span is longer than that of the turtle with an average of 80-150 years and a maximum of 188 years.”

Coiled

Coiled

I do not particularly like snakes but I do find them interesting and so that is why I took its photograph. This one is coiled up onto itself.

I do not know even what kind of snake it is. It was taken at the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona.

According to National Geographic, “There are more than 3,000 species of snakes on the planet and they’re found everywhere except in Antarctica, Iceland, Ireland, Greenland, and New Zealand. About 600 species are venomous, and only about 200—seven percent—are able to kill or significantly wound a human.”

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

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

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.”
