This tote bag features a female Red-Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). One of the most widespread and commonly observed birds of prey in North America, this fierce hunter is perched on a branch high up in some evergreen spruce trees, patiently waiting for a meal to appear. Her head is brown and the creamy white breast has brown spots. The red tail only is seen from the back.
This terrific image of dogs reading, writing and attending school is by the well known vintage pets artist, Louis Wain. Known primarily for his anthropomorphic images of cats, Louis Wain also made a large number of dog images, mainly in his earlier years. He illustrated about one hundred children's books, and his work appeared in papers, journals, magazines. He also created a large number of greeting cards and postcards featuring dogs and cats in human situations. This image is from a 1910 postcard

I am constantly astonished and entranced by the myriad forms of life on this planet. To quote one of my very favorite authors, Annie Dillard, in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "the creator has pizzazz".
I hope to display a variety of animal images on this blog to delight us all. I have created many products featuring wildlife and pets for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous animal products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.
