... and I forgot to pay tribute to the owl... and the eagle... and the timeless warrior...

I find the juxtaposition of this mirror & the previous one very interesting.
One is a safe solid tree about two hundred years old & the other a willow half that age & growing in an environment that is under threat.
One is an image of a sleepy old man & the other definitely awake & ready to pounce.
The willow to me has a very feline personality.
More tooth & claw.
I know my feelings might be affecting my photography, but when I'm creating mirrors & mandalas I'm usually just looking for interesting shapes & contrast of light & texture.
I'm not consciously trying to find a particular type of totem, or convey a particular message.
Random selection plays a big part when I'm editing these type of images yet they definitely convey their current status.

I know one thing.
I need to seek out more old trees with 'character'.
;o)
Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, a science in itself... I enjoy being part of this exploratory journey :-)
