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 canvas tote bag features a garden snail emerging from his shell. He is a terrestrial gastropod mollusk with a brown and beige shell in the classic spiral pattern. His tentacles each have an eye at the end and are pointing ahead as he figures out where to go, pushed along by his strong muscular foot.
A grumpy looking American Toad (Bufo americanus) is looking out at you from this t-shirt. This small amphibian is brown with black, gold olive green and orange coloration. His warts distinguish him from his frog neighbors.
This animal t-shirt features a lively katydid. Katydids are medium-sized to large insects. They are usually green, sometimes with brown markings, and are camouflaged to blend with the leaves they feed on. Their very long antennae distinguish them from grasshoppers. Seen up close, they seem to be aliens from outer space!
This animal t-shirt features a brilliant crimson red Northern Cardinal. He is truly the king of backyard birds! Here he is perched on a snowy rail eating black oil sunflower seeds while the winter snow swirls around him.
