Description STALKING TIGERSlowly through the grass The tiger stalked his prey His movement long and languid In the middle of the day The sun was high and bright As a vivid burning orb His body moving slowly Less heat there to absorb Gazelles were moving fitfully Around the waterhole Nervous eyes were flitting wildly As the world they did behold A movement in the distance And the animals did jump The nerve ends all a jangling Each one with quivering rump Then like avenging angels The tiger now does pounce Gazelles are scattering wildly With a death like spinning dance And one of them is slower No longer held at bay The tiger now triumphant As it finishes its preyPhil Sanders (aka Brummieboy)5/4/07Thanks for the wonderful poem Phil!
Mundy Hackett, Lanexa, Virginia Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I am a wildlife ecologist, and I have been serious about wildlife photography for 10+ years. I love to photograph all aspects of the natural world, but my favorite subjects are the felines (wild and domesticated). I have begun to branch out in my nature work, incorporating more involvement of the digital darkroom in creating the types of evocative scenes that sometines only the brush can capture. If you like my work I hope you will spend some time travelling through my diverse gallery offerings, and please by all means feel free to share my work with your family and friends. The more the merrier. I shoot with professional Nikon bodies and lenses and use Photoshop CS. If you would like to see something specific feel free to drop me a line, I love requests. Thank you for taking the time to view my work, it is my pleasure to share the natural wonders of our world with you all, and hopefully I can show it to you in a unique and artistic way that makes you feel closer to it and cherish it more with every passing day!
