I like creating images of the close-up details of the world around me. I don’t think many people see these details in the world. To me, they have a beauty that is often unnoticed, sometimes even by me.
One of the fun parts of the Zoo is watching all the none zoo animals eating the zoo animals food. The birds are everywhere. Sparrows, ducks, geese, crows and magpies find a free meal. Crows and Magpies like eating with the bears. Where ever there is food there will also be field mice and voles. Lots to watch if you just look past the zoo animals.
This is the fur of the Red River Hogs at the Calgary Zoo. Sometimes I find the close-up details more interesting than the larger picture. I like the red fur and the white stripe down the spine of the hog. The colour and texture were what attracted me to this image.
