Vegan Taxidermy constructs critters out of crepe paper, wire, styrofoam and papier mache and they're almost as convincing as the real thing.
An odd couple :) This is Burt. he has been feeding and friends with the muted swans in Stanley park for many many years. There is only one other person I have ever seen that they allow to touch without retaliating or biting. It is amazing to see how all of them look forward to his visits. Burt is in his late 70's and goes to the lagoon almost every day.
Ardent Singer by Erik Mandre, national geographic: Estonoia, Harju County where the European Starling is a harbinger of spring. This bird's singing was so ardent that it left breath fumes in the air for a second or two. #European_NStarling #Estonia #Erik_Mandre #nationalgeographic
