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 animal water bottle features a Sharp Shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) perched on the top of a bird feeder hoping to catch a meal. He has a hunter's stare. His yellow talons and orange eyes are prominent. He has lovely rust and cream bands on his breast, white and black striped tail feathers, and a gray back. This hawk's prey is mostly small birds. Although the "Sharpie" is the smallest hawk in North America, he is a very fierce predator. A wonderful idea for bird lovers!
This animal water bottle 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 a tree, patiently waiting for a meal to appear. Her head is brown and the creamy white breast has brown spots. A wonderful idea for bird lovers!
