antelope

Question of the day:
Do antelopes eat canteloupes?

I’m on an African theme lately. Appropriately so, because it is quite hot and humid like the Congo, right now, in the Northeast. Here is my sketch of an antelope. Canteloupe not included.

My elephant is on the way to the closest body of water it can find.

The long Memorial Day weekend is here. Time to jump into the water and have some fun!

everglades wildlife

I spent some time in the Florida, documenting various wildlife with photography and drawing. I was most anxious to see an alligator in the flesh… err, in the scales, rather. It would have been a shame to go all the way to Florida and not see gators. Well, the Everglades has an abundance of these smiling massive reptiles, basking in the sun. They are practically posing for you.

Still, alligators are not the only exotic animals to see. Visitors from everywhere come here to experience world-class bird watching. I come here more to fish watch and reptile watch. My next priority after seeing gators was to spot turtles. Again, this National Park did not disappoint. I saw dinosaur-sized turtles.

Here is my sketch (a work in progress) which is a snapshot of an Everglades scene. It includes mangroves, a soft-shelled turtle and of course, a gator. The proximity of this many animals in one area is really not unheard of, in the Glades.
