MARCH Fur/Feathers/Scales Challenge!

Hello and Welcome to the March Fur, Feathers, & Scales Challenge!
I am so please to to feature the work of photographers I know from other forums, all used with their permission. I'll send each of them get a link to this site to see our interpretations of their work at the end of the month.

REMINDER - REVEAL DAY IS THE 20TH,
PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ARTWORK BEFORE THAT!

Any size, any medium, and any crop is acceptable.... just keep it to yourself till the 20th!

Feathers:
This beautiful swan and cygnet was photographed by Kirsten Scheffel:


A magnificent shot of a pelican in flight photographed by Karen Z. Krystal:


and another feathered friend of Karen Z. Krystal's:


Fur:
Great capture of a Bobcat walking through the snow by Tim Torrell, noted wildlife photographer.


This adorable bear cub was photographed by Kyna B. Bear.
She lives in the Rockies and posts many wonderful captures from her trail cameras and her photo adventures.


This is Boltz, a 2-yr old wolf at the International Wolf Center in Ely MN, he was photographed by my friend Jill Renner Armentrout:


Scales:
I'm not sure if this fits fins or scales or whatever, but its another cool picture by Jill!


From Kiersten Rowland, a delicate Iberian Marbled White butterfly



and lastly, I took a pic of this scaly resident of the Everglades on a trip to FL:

I hope you find something that captures your imagination!

Really wonderful selection of references, Pat. It will be hard to choose, but I've saved a few to try.

Re: MARCH Fur/Feathers/Scales Challenge!

Hi everyone

You are all invited to visit our Chat Room "The Animal Inn".
If you are new to the Animal & Wildlife Forum, or if you regularly poster, do call in and say Hi. Here's the link to the page; http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1400070

We talk about all subjects in our Chat Room - doesn't have to be just about animals, but for those who have been following the Pippa saga (my 10month old Jack Russell/Fox Terrier puppy) I've just posted an update in Pippa's progress, as she hurtles towards her first birthday in May.

Re: MARCH Fur/Feathers/Scales Challenge!

Should we select one of the references and work with it or one from each of the categories?

You can do as many as you want to or you can just do one if you would sooner.

Re: MARCH Fur/Feathers/Scales Challenge!

Beautiful photos! Thanks Pat.

I love the bear. I've seen some brilliant pictures from trail cameras, it's as if the animals are posing for the picture sometimes. I am torn between at least three of the refs.
