A commentary piece I created concerning my favorite endangered animal
rhino, endangered, extinction, laughing bones
I am proud of my Native American Heritage and am making it a goal to return to a lot of the old ways.
Photography is my friend and outlet, making a statement concerning injustice and the need for equality amongst every soul that walks this Earth is my passion.
I create art to be controversial, and make you think.
The truth has never damaged the righteous cause
Really cool work and effects!
Thank you Darlene, you’re always good to so many

Very cleverly done, Jeff. The symbolism is subtle but unmistakable – disappearing at an expanding rate. It’s a great pity that, even with his head up, the rhino doesn’t see what is happening to his psecies.
Thank you Jan and true they have such poor eyesight it’s easy for a poacher to get within feet for a kill shot, really breaks my heart to think inside of 5 years there will no wild Rhinos roaming the African Plains if something is not done more drastically
sad pretty soon there will be no large animals left people will have to pay money to ever see them again hate to say it but zoos are the future nursing homes for these animals and i wonder when the poachers run out of stuff to poach who will they poach next. theres a new show on tv whale wars drives me nuts that people do this knowing that once they are gone they are gone
It is a sad dichotomy and one our children may never know the beauty of these animals roaming free and wild. Thank you very much for taking the time to look and comment LoreLeft

Thank you so very much Margaret, appreciate you poppin in
….and mine too. South Africa is currently obsessed with trying to protect them poaching (already nearly 200 killed this year only). This image is powerful, the textures in the small squares reminds one of their skin. Bravo!
It is so sad that there are some people in these days of Viagra, that still kill these beautiful creatures for their horns because of some witch doctor mumbo jumbo claiming it’s an aphrodisiac. It sounds bad but almost wish there were poacher of poachers.
thank you for your very kind words and observance Jolante
Fantastic piece Jeff!! It’s happening to too many of our animal species!! :)
Thank you with buckets of thanx Keith.
Man is the most dangerous and not nearly as smart as our furry, scaley or feathered breathen
