Even wild predator animals have emotions,

The photo above was taken by a forum member Richard also knows as “rbsandor”.

He said:

These brothers exhibited a bit of familial love upon greeting each other. D700 and 200-400 lens.

….

it was a  treat to actually see the adult lions doing something. The vast majority of their time seems to be spent lying around. This greeting lasted only a few seconds. The male who walked up to his brother, walked away, and layed down with his back to us.

Art With Driftwood – Driftwood Horses

June 23rd, 2010 2 comments


4xDriftwood is wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea or river by the action of winds, tides or waves. It is a form of marine debris or tidewrack. Some may consider driftwood a nuisance. However, this driftwood provides shelter and food for birds, fish and other aquatic species as it floats in the ocean. To some of us, who value nature as it is and find beauty everywhere, driftwood can be pretty to look at. Some use this wood to make natural-looking furniture.

If you want to be creative, you could do as Heather Jansch did, get some driftwood and re-use it to make wooden horses!

Not  only are they beautiful, but they are made from what mother nature has put on the shores to tease our imagination and creativity. For her nature-based art and creativity, I list Jansch’s horses in the “best of” category.
