:pointr: Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest: AUTUMN...:iconzubatlaplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest :iconzubatlaplz:
:iconpumpkinborderplz: Autumn THEME 2014: "AWESOME ABSTRACTS of AUTUMN!" :iconpumpkinborderplz:
Let's Get ABSTRACT, and Let's BE AWESOME about it!
Unframed-Nature would like to try something a little different, as a group, for this Contest.
Using themes, colours, scenes, and feelings of the Season of Autumn, as we experience the season wherever we live around the globe, we would like to see artistic depictions and expression of Autumn as ABSTRACT ART.
This works well for media such as:
:bulletgreen: Photography, Traditional, Digital, Fractals, Collage, Mixed Media, Literature, and more, including some of their sub-categories.
If genre is new or semi-new to you, my most basic way to think about Abstract work, is in using these three together:
1. COLOUR- usually brighter than not, and how the colours work together.
2. CURVES, oft

...or we will HAUNT YOU....

Nearly 1,000 :points: for 1st place! :faint:

:bulletorange: What WE STILL NEED...
:bulletblack: PRIZES, in general!
:bulletblack: Individuals and Groups to offer FEATURES,
OR to PROMOTE our Contest, or BOTH!
:bulletpurple: Please comment on the ABOVE Contest Article if you are able to do any of the above, and I will add you to the list/s and I thank you tons in advance!
:thanks: :iconpumpkinplz: :thanks:

:bulletgreen:Most importantly, have TONS of FUN!

Endangered Animals Feature II: African Wild Dog

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 15, 2014, 1:07 PM

This is the second part of the Endangered Animals feature series for Unframed-Nature.
Previous part: Snow Leopard 

Endangered animal: African Wild Dog

Recognized by their distinct, colorful fur, the African Wild Dogs have disappeared from many parts of Africa. They used to be seen largely over the continent, but are now only found in its southern parts as well as the south of East Africa.

The population of these canines is continuously declining because of conflict with human activities, which causes both accidental and targeted killings, as well as habitat fragmentation and infectious diseases amongst their packs.

African Wild Dog info:

Lycaon pictus

Also known as: Painted Dog, Cape Hunting Dog
