A place for all things Jackalope related
They have shed their velvet! Can't wait for the Jackalope rut to kick in!
Jackalope poses in the fresh snow. Even with as much time as I spend on the plains of Colorado, you could count on one hand the number of times I have seen these rarest of creatures. Only two of those times was I able to get a picture and those were only of the animal as it fled. Last month, after a recent snowstorm, I rounded a corner and there was one, sitting and posing as perfectly as you could hope for! It was surprisingly patient, allowing me to grab quite a few pictures, this one being my favorite. The sighting was one of those truly extraordinary ones I relish as a wildlife photographer and what keeps me going out at every opportunity. I certainly hope your first day of April is just as memorable.
Extraordinarily rare jackalope bounds across the plains. A truly amazing encounter with this rarest of creatures. So rare, in fact, that I have opted to keep this sighting secret for many months rather than risk it being harassed by others trying to find it. Taken last June, I initially spotted only the jackalope’s sticking up, just barely, above the grass. I doubted it was what I hoped it was and almost kept on going however something told me to investigate. Carefully, I crept closer, hunched down to try to stay out of sight and minding my steps to make as little sound as possible. Despite my best efforts, the creature heard me and in an instant it was off to the races. Those long legs did an amazing job of propelling it as it bounded effortlessly, easily covering 4 or 5 feet with each leap. In a matter of seconds it was gone but the memories of this encounter will last a lifetime.
That awkward stage when the colors are a little “off” before I go in with layers of marker and colored pencil to shift hues. It always looks a little silly to me until all of the detail work is finally placed in 😂
Saturday warm up that just kept going. Now that I have new supplies after my bag with my art stuff got jacked from my truck, I can finally get back to making things. And while having a small break was nice, albeit not wanted, I've got a massive list of things to start getting through. We're entering spooky season so I've got art to make! I'll be down at Berkley River Front Park tomorrow with for from 11-4 (well that's when the show happens, I'll be there much, much earlier setting up lol) Anyhow, have a good Saturday all! Maybe I'll post more later.
Wow! Very rare and endangered Jackalope.
So grateful he made it through that harsh winter!
Hope your valentine isn't a myth

A new beautiful creature was born♡︎ She smells of the well-known and popular fresh natural aroma of evergreen winter pine and is certainly a fragrance to be coveted for not only the Christmas season. This fragrance initially gives off a strong and distinctive scent associated with bergamot, lemon, white mint and grapefruit, which is then enhanced by light undertones of calone, clove leaf and thyme. Incorporated into the formulation for this distinctive scent is a delightful aftertaste of precious woods, pine, cedar, sandalwood and fennel.
Her name is Nastjenka♡︎

Wendigos are often depicted as evil spirits with human-like characteristics. Wendigos are seen as embodiments of gluttony, greed, and excess: they are never satisfied after consuming a victim and are always seeking new ones. People who fall under the influence of the wendigo are said to feel insatiable greed, hunger, and the desire to cannibalize other humans.
There is a creature in Wyoming known as the jackalope. It is half antelope, half jackrabbit. They are so fast that they are nearly impossible to catch. Hunters who catch one risk being kicked, clawed, and even gored by the beast. However, the jackalope does have one weakness: whiskey. If you wish to catch a jackalope, you should leave the spirit on the ground for it to discover. 🐰
