Wonderful nature??? This is one thing that got me thinking. What do I think is wonderful about nature. The trees that come to life again in spring? The way nature can restore itself after a horrific fire? Then I thought about animals. Most of us would take in an abandon wild animal if we found one. Or at least take it to a sanctuary that we know would give it good care. But it is amazing to me that on rear occasions, a wild animal come across an abandoned human child, they will return the favour. Though some say many of these stories are myth and legion. There are many true stories of wolves becoming adoptive parents of feral children, but not just wolves, dogs, chimpanzees, monkeys, goats, bears, leopards, jackals, ostriches, pigs and other animals have had the maternal instinct to look after the child and bring it into their family.

So this is what I decided to do as my latest piece. A mother wolf who has taken a young abandoned baby as her own, and is very much part of the family. This I did set at night, so the only light would be reflected from the moon on them as they sleep in the entrance to their den. The mother forever watchful awake. And the other young cub just stirring, snugly cuddled up to the baby, maybe in attempt to keep him warm or maybe just because it's comfy.

Hope you like it.
