Wood Duck Couple by FoldedWilderness
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.

This is an origami sitting cat, as designed by Fumiaki Kawahata.

I folded it from a square of paper, painted on both sides with acrylics.
Summer Arctic Fox by FoldedWilderness
Summer Arctic Fox

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        - Anton Chekhov

When we think of an arctic fox, the first image that comes to mind is of their wintry snow-white coat they are famous for.
They however spend all Summer in a much shorter and darker coat that suits them for the warmer days without snow.

This is an origami version of a Summer Arctic fox.
It was folded from a single square of paper (roughly 14 inches) painted of a different color each side before folding.

I used the model of a Coyote by Richard Odeja Soto as a base and made my way from there.
Golden Eagle by FoldedWilderness

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.
