A garden has many facets and voices, but when creating a new one, a first step is to decide on the overriding feeling you want to convey through it and experience in it. When we first saw our house we fell in love with the forest in front of it and all its wildlife.  But we soon felt the house was an island in a sea of grass,  cut off from the forest as you can see in this first photo taken in 2006. No animals ventured out, there were surprisingly few birds and no flowers. So our first task was to start growing a hedgerow up one side of our property connecting the forest to the side of the house. Not a hedge,which ususally entails just one species,  but a border with different plants and habitats, creating visual diversity and protection to animals as they are lured out of the forest. Photo 2 shows progress in 2012 and photo 3 in 2015. Today we have a hedgerow of over 50 metres long and 2 wide with 58 plant species most of which are native to South and Central America.

Aside from the Komodo Dragon and Orangutan, not a lot of South East Asian species get love from people, so the animals I’ll be drawing are the lesser known species from the region in question. here’s one of them, the Malayan Civet

Oh, right, I do have an Instagram account. The place for selfies! One day I’ll get better at posting more regularly. Here I am with a new acquaintance in the Masai Mara in Kenya. On assignment with WWF UK 🇬🇧 #masaimara #kenya #africa #eastafrica #documentary #photovideo #lifeisbeautiful #wildlifeconservation #ilovemyjob but I miss my #family
The Lappet-Faced Vulture (Torgos tracheliotus) is a solitary species of vulture, until it comes to feeding where it feeds singularly, in pairs or large flocks. 
It weighs around 4.5-8.5kg, is about 98-115cm tall and has a wingspan of 2.6-2.8m long! 
The adults have black feathers and white leggings with an obvious white bar across the inner wing coverts. It’s this feature which can distinguish them from other vultures in flight. They have a wrinkled bare skinned head with a large hooked bill that they use to open carcasses. 
They are a quiet bird but have a high-pitched whistle when displaying. 
They can be found in semi-arid savannah and desert and have been known to travel over 1,000km for food. 
The Lappet-Faced Vulture is rated as #endangered by the iucn redlist.
Camera used was a #lumixmcfz72d and the photos were taken at @selatiresearch

Good Morning from Magnolia Fawn Rescue! My birthday is this week and all I wanted this year was a barn for the non releasable deer.. Yesterday my husband finished clearing the area and today we can start picking up building materials! Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed to this much needed project. If any one would like to help us with the cost of materials, donations can be made through my rescue’s PayPal. Also we still need some fencing for the blind deer and his companion. If you could please help with that,:

A little late but still relevant! This is the Monarch Butterfly and this illustration is a part of my Beautiful Creatures series 🦋

I've had this done for a while and was supposed to post for the first day of spring but I got a little distracted with other things thus this post being a few days late 😅
