Found in south eastern Russia & northern China, these big cats are critically endangered.
Possibly only 100 left in the wild

With habitat being so accessible, threats from hunting & development are just a few.

My take on Philip Sue’s beautiful dtiys challenge on Instagram.

Artist: Valerie de Rozarieux

This little chick of a comb-crested Jacana really appealed- I then read that they are also known as lilytrotter- Back to the hot press paper and fun with allowing the paint to pool and create “ cauliflowers “… some people hate them but I quite like them..
Much thanks to @georgina_steytler for her very kind permission to use an image from her beautiful gallery- 🙏- do take a look 😊.

PHOENIX - Pigi Glarou

Artist: Pigi Glarou
The title says it all. Phoenix, the bird that is reborn from its own ashes, and a beautiful image found online was the perfect challenge to draw something like this. Combining the two elements, fire and water and showing the perfect balance between them. One does not have to shadow the other and both can create new life together.
