Perching Owls

These are some of the owls I made for last week's fair. The blue and pink one is sad because he didn't get adopted. But he's doing okay, thanks for asking.

Onto the business at hand: What makes these guys so cute? Well, there are many cute forces at work here. But in this case I'd like to focus on the main feature of this picture: Location Location Location! Where a critter is sitting, or in this case perching, has everything to do with its apparent cuteness. The juxtaposition of the whimsical against the realistic is what makes a photo like this pop. It might not work so well for, say, a knitted fish, but you get the idea.

Great picture!

Actually a fish would be very cute in a tree because it's an opposite environment that you'd expect.

Even though my jewelry isn't really cute I like to pose my Budding vine bracelets in natural habitats that the real thing would live in like putting one near a real branch or on a bed of leaves.
