Art Roundup, week of August 13th

As we continued to wander through the habitats of Mill Mountian Zoo, each of the sights and animals were wonderful to see. Head over to your favorite image and comment on its DeviantArt page. If you see any images here that aren’t available on Natural Desygns or SM Desygns reach out to me through the Etsy store and I’ll add the image to the correct store. In the meantime, click any of the images to head over to DeviantArt to get a better look.

Walking Flight

Even though I just wanted to get a close-up shot of this avian visitor when I neared, its survival instinct overrode its disregard for the world and it scampered away. Though instead of taking flight, it spun around and dashed away, its tail feathers dragging across the fallen leaves.

As I thumbed through my pictures, I realized a fair number of them just were good enough for me to publish. Thankfully, this image of a sleeping fox was one of the good ones. Whenever my eyes fall upon this image, I can’t help but think of my dogs when they curl up in a corner of the house to nap.

Sleeping Fox

Swiveling Beak

In the back of the zoo, there are a few habitats the zoo chose to isolate. Among the three isolated critters, we headed to the one featuring an American icon, a bald eagle. When the regal creature came into view, we saw it perching upon a tree branch, itemizing everything in its domain. While I wished to see this magnificent bird in flight, watching its profile sway back and forth was an amazing view.

The three animals that were separated from the rest were the bald eagle, an American black bear, and a red wolf. Unfortunately, the bear didn’t meander where we could see it. However, the wolf was front and center. In fact, when we got to his part of the zoo, he was standing on a rock examining the zoo patrons. It was as if this canine was searching for the best way to protect his home from an oncoming horde.
