Origami Sharing squirrel 2 by FoldedWilderness
Origami Sharing squirrel 2
"There is no joy in possession without sharing."
Desiderius Erasmus

These pictures took some patience because the squirrels did not seem to know (or care) what I wanted them to do.

They were at first very reluctant to even approach the origami model and when they did; they had a tendency to knock over their little friend.    They also stole his peanut a number of times.

They did provide me with a few cute pictures and they sure eat a lot of peanuts in that time too.

________________

The origami itself is an old model I had partially folded a while back and forgot about.
I think it was going to be Michel Lafosse's model but I just finished it on my own, which explains the untidiness of it.

Origami Elephant by FoldedWilderness
Origami Elephant
Elephants are a natural wonder of the world. We are proud and honoured to have these remarkable animals in our countries, but they are disappearing fast from many places and action is needed now.
-Ibrahim Lankoande : Directeur Général des Forêts et de la Faune, Burkina Faso

Elephants are in the spotlight these days for efforts in their conservation and the fight against poaching.  


This Origami was made as a gift for a friend.
It is an interpretation of Gen Hagiwaras Model.
I used a 30cm square of Mulberry paper, painted blue on one side and white of the reverse.

Wood Duck Couple
Wood duck couples are particularly affectionate this time of the year; which means we are going to see the young ones coming out in a few short weeks.

(Origami) Frog and Toad are friends by FoldedWilderness
(Origami) Frog and Toad are friends
“Frog, why do you keep looking out of the window?” asked Toad.
“Because now I am waiting for the mail,” said Frog.
“But there will not be any,” said Toad.
“Oh, yes there will,” said Frog, “because I have sent you a letter.”
“You have?” said Toad. “What did you write in the letter?”
Frog said, “I wrote ‘Dear Toad, I am glad that you are my best friend.  Your best friend, Frog.’”
“Oh,” said Toad, “that makes a very good letter.”

Then Frog and Toad went out onto the front porch to wait for the mail. They sat there, feeling happy together. 

                 From the Children's book: Frog and Toad are Friends.   Arnold Lobel 1970



The Toad did not want to be friends with my frog at first and tried to hop away.
 I put it a bit further out and it hopped towards it this time and they sat there holding hands for a short minute.
After a few pictures, the toad went back towards the woods; a little confused as to what happened but, with a good story to tell.

Question about a change in focus

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 6, 2014, 6:49 AM


I have just replied to a question by rainylake about my recent long absence from DeviantArt and this made my wonder about possibly returning soon.

The only problem is that I have not been doing Origami in some time now and while I plan to return to them in the future, right now that leaves me with only a few unpublished images from the previous years.


What I have been doing recently is trying to take wildlife photography.   I enjoy 'the hunt' and being in nature very much, so I have been spending my spare time on this a lot.


So then my question is this:

Would it be fine if I started posting my less terrible wildlife pictures?        (which are mainly birds, since they are everywhere and easier to get close to)


Or should I just start a new account for these?



Lastly, since I have been away for several months, I did not take time to thank people who commented and gave 'favorites' to my works so I would like to do so now:

Thank you very much to everyone who stopped by and showed they enjoy my works, it's always appreciated.
