Turpentine Creek 04 by fangedfem Turpentine Creek 04 by fangedfem
This series of 5 photos I am submitting are from a shoot I did for a wildlife refuge called Turpentine Creek. They have a fund raiser called Safari Days where they auction off art from local artists, as well as holding a small competition for each category. I did this last year and took first place in the photography category, but more importantly, my photos sold and money was made for the wildlife refuge.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I live for animals - how I do as much as I can for them. Not only when I work full-time as a vet nurse or animal care coordinator for an animal shelter, but I also foster and help with any events and fundraisers I can. I have done this my whole life and will continue to do so. For they are my children and I love them.

ALL the profits will be donated to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. They are a struggling organization that do so much with so little and I want to do everything I can to help them.

I hope you enjoy these magnificent creatures as much as I do :heart:

I saw all five, and they're so vibrant. Excellent job; they all look amazing! The one showing his teeth managed to scare me, and that NEVER happens. I'm kind of late, though; did you manage to win the contest? Because you definitely deserved to!

Beautiful photo!! The leafs make a great border around the tiger :D
Great work... that is for making this photo as well as for what you do for the animals.
I was at the Zoo today (and a few times more past week) and it's sad to see so much animals which are threatened in their existence.

There should be more people like you who do al they can do for the animals. Yes, there áre people like that in the world, but still not enough.

Greetings and happy holidays. May 2007 be a great year for you :)

Nice shot. Too bad you were not able to get closer to play with dof a bit. The risks of getting munched on are probably a bit too high.
