Desert Pygmy Mouse
Photograph - Photograph, Photography
A Desert Pygmy mouse, that can be prey for black backed jackals that also live in Namib Desert near Walvis Bay, peeks out curiously through the stem succulents. I took a 4x4 sand dune tour out to Sandwich Harbor. A baby mouse was also nearby (seen in another image). One of the tour's highlights was seeing a beauty black-backed jackal. We stopped and the guide showed us stem succulents and water that could be found at the base of large dunes by digging a foot or so deep. Then we spotted these cute little mice. Meanwhile, the female jackal that was nearby found a fruit and carried it off to eat.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
