Female Red-winged Blackbird by FoldedWilderness
Female Red-winged Blackbird

 "Whatever good things we build end up building us."

                                                                                                                                                                                                                             -Emanuel James Rohn

This picture is from mid-May, where Red-winged Blackbirds are either building their nests, or looking after their eggs, depending on how quickly the couple paired.
The females build the nests and incubate the eggs, while the males chase away the threats from around the area; they can be quite aggressive and fearless about it.
Coyote Hungry by FoldedWilderness
Coyote Hungry

 "Coyote is always out there waiting, and Coyote is always hungry."

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 -Native American Navajo Proverb

This coyote was actually eating when I took this picture, which explains the look; he was not angry at, nor menacing anything.
Taken at the Montreal EcoMuseum in March.
Eastern Screech-Owl by FoldedWilderness
Eastern Screech-Owl

“A wise old owl sat on an oak.

The more he saw the less he spoke.

The less he spoke the more he heard.

Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

                                                                     -Old English nursery rhyme

         Seen in a small wooded area near where we live, early in the morning.
home-building Chickadees by FoldedWilderness
home-building Chickadees

It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home. 

A black-capped chickadee couple building their nest to start a family.

They both take turns going in the small cavity and chipping away at the inside to give them enough room for the eggs and eventual offsprings to grow in.
When one has enough loose material, it will fly out to a nearby branch and drop its cargo, while the other goes in for their turn.

On the first image, you can see the tail of one chickadee sticking out from the nest, while it's partner waits to go in.
The other three images show how they typically dispose of the loose material they excavate.
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. 

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.

I hope you are doing alright! Haven't heard from you in awhile :noes:
FoldedWilderness Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015   Artisan Crafter
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.  :)
