Little Prince by FoldedWilderness
Little Prince
 "Goodbye," said the fox.
      "And now here is my secret, a very simple secret:
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."

    "What is essential is invisible to the eye,"  the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
                                                           - The little prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry         


This is an Arctic fox from the Montreal Ecomuseum.  He was born with a degenerative eye disease that slowly brought him to become blind.

Sunny Snowy Owl by FoldedWilderness
Sunny Snowy Owl
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
                                     -Great Expectations by Charles Dickens



This Snowy owl is blissfully welcoming the warm spring sun.

A Reflecting Duckling
 “Did you ever wonder if the person in the puddle is real, and you're just a reflection of him?”

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Origami in some time now and while I plan to return to them in the future, right now that leaves me with only a few unpublished images from the previous years.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.

August Unicorn (origami) by FoldedWilderness
August Unicorn (origami)
From Merriam-Webster:

   august:  Marked by majestic dignity or grandeur 
  August:   the eighth month of the Gregorian calendar


When trying to find a title for this Unicorn, I realized that august is a very fitting word to describe such a fantasy animal.
Being the right month for it is an awesome coincidence, even though I barely made it in time.


This unicorn is folded from a single square sheet of mulberry paper, painted white on both sides with acrylic paint beforehand.
Yes, I painted an already white paper because this type of paper is so soft that it would not hold its shape without the paint layers to harden it a little.
The design is from Roman Diaz, it is his oldest (as far as I can tell) of several Unicorn models.

Yes, I am doing ok.

I have been mostly offline since August, visiting DA once in a while and sometimes thinking about coming back.

I have not made origami in a long time, though and shifted my attention since late summer to wildlife but, I don't have good equipment to take great shots (nor the expertise, either.) so I am not sure about posting my stuff.

Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by and ask if I was alright.  :)
