Snow Leopards by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper


Well now I've got a one legged snow leopard! I've spotted a glaring mistake that I will need to go back to rectify, I looked and looked but something just didn't seem right and now I can see I made the bib on the second leopard way too low so I will have to try to change that, luckily as the colours are very muted I'm sure I can sort it out.
And here is the Willow pic of the day, she had a close encounter with Pickle the guinea pig, but all she was interested in was chewing my solar lights, I have about 20 all around the pens and shed which glow at night, so far I think Willow has dug up 6 so I chase around after her putting them all back in place, typical puppy wanting to chew everything, luckily she hasn't started on the furniture yet!
I suddenly felt a pang of guilt at not photographing my other pets, I spend all my time chasing around after Willow taking as many pics as I can before she grows too big (she grows on a daily basis) and Treacle quite politely decided to pose for me (she did think food was on offer)
It was such a nice sunny day yesterday, the furry pets stayed out all day until the light went so they enjoyed themselves no end, instead of just an hour when I get home from work or not at all when it rains.
And these are the muscovy ducklings, they are now as big as Mum and Dad, these are just a few of them, we seem to be good at hatching these!
I'm not sure if I've ever introduced the guinea fowl, we have four led by Bob, Bob is at least 7 years old, they are just mad and spend all day chasing each other around. They really are good at guarding the house though, they make an enormous racket if something comes into the garden they don't recognise, a strange dog, a fox, buzzard and people all get a chorus of noise so we know when something is awry.

If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower (see bottom of page). If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition. It costs nothing to enter, all you require is internet access.

Thanks Bill, my guinea pig is a bit spoilt, she gets a special breakfast of carrot everyday! Finished the snow leopards now but trying to work out a background, I gues it will be full of snow though.
