Out of the Void Posters
Out of the Void Poster by Bebops

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.

This iPhone 5 case features the Great Blue Heron, a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae, common near the shores of open water and in wetlands. He is the largest North American heron. Notable features include slaty flight feathers, red-brown thighs, and a paired red-brown and black stripe up the flanks; the neck is rusty-gray, with black and white streaking down the front; the head is paler, with a nearly white face, and a pair of black plumes running from just above the eye to the back of the head. The feathers on the lower neck are long and plume-like. Because this is the breeding season, he also has plumes on the lower back and an orange bill. His feathers are backlit by the luminous sunlight.

The Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, has iridescent copper colored elytra and a green thorax and head. Despite its colorful beauty, it is a serious pest of many plants, including roses, grapes, hops, canna and crape myrtles. Here it is on display with legs spread on a field of white wildflowers and greenery.

This pillow is embellished with an illustrated portrait of a Dalmatian dog set against a soft blue, gold and gray argyle pattern on a light green background.

A group of common terns, collectively known as a "committee of terns" is the focus of this fractal design. Within each group of terns there is one large tern followed by progressive waves of smaller terns in greater numbers radiating from a center point outside the image. It gives the impression of terns in a symmetrical flight pattern similar to waves breaking on a shore. Each group of terns alternates between facing left and right and the pattern progressively increases in size further down the tie. The images show the Common Tern (Sterna Hirundo) whose head and head feathers are distinctively black, breast white, tinged with gray and swallow-like forked tail. The background color of the tie is dark blue but this may be changed before ordering. Fully customizable and easy to personalize, add text, different colors and styles. An ideal unique gift to a bird lover as a "Thank You" or Congratulations present, or just an unusual talking point for your committee meetings and business lunches.
