Random from Dragons

Come look at mighty dragons in all shapes and sizes!

A very special dragoness called Silkara Lanyxania is surely to be in there.

Random from Photos- Squirrels and Friends

Squirrels are my favorite animals. Look inside the folder to learn why they are so endearing to me. :meow:

Random Favourites

From dragons to photos to cartoons, you'll find it all here. ;) I love to favorite things not just because I like it, but also because I want to promote the artist! Some are sorely in need of recognition so wonderful are their talents!

Artworks I'd really like to buy someday. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees, wouldn't it be nice if it did? :XD:


SilkenWinds's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
Photography is a passion of mine and someday I hope to have all pro lenses. Right now, I do the best I can with what I have. I have learned a LOT over the years, and my skills have vastly improved. However, much improvement is still needed. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my gallery, and I give a lot of heartfelt thanks to everyone on deviantart who supports me with comments and/or favorites.

The deviantart community is awesome! :dalove:

About that girl in the photo:

Hi there! Call me Ami online. In "real" life, Evie will do.
I'm 35 currently.
I have Fibro, and sometimes life is VERY challenging.
I love God, believe in Him, and consider myself a Christian.

I love all of God's creatures. :heart:

Well OK...maybe not mosquitoes.

Current tools of the trade:

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lenses: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM , Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD

About my photography: I only use natural light and never use flash. I do not use Photoshop and only do minor editing with either Windows Photo Gallery or Photofiltre (highly recommended). My style is extremely challenging because of this but I feel it is the best way to learn. My biggest tip to other photographers would be to get out there and photograph everything. Look above you and below you. The more you look around, the more wonders you will see.

Well yesterday reminded me why DA is one of the best internet communities out there.  I really have not regretted joining this site and will never look back.  So many awesome artists and photographers, yes, but in general the PEOPLE here are, for the most part, absolute winners and I have to find any other website like deviantart! :dalove:

So a big thanks to all who wished me a Happy Birthday on my profile page: :iconiytj: :iconadriandunk: :iconlucyranelle: :iconblack--paws: :iconha-rat-kiri: :iconmouselemur: :iconsylverface: :iconjackie-chaos-bunny: :iconmorningirbis: :iconagent36496: :iconmagicbirdie: :iconjettereitsma: :icons-kmp: !!  :huggle: :heart: :hug: :blush:

And for my admin of :iconanimalsoftheworld:, next to our awesome members, nothing has made the group so successful as the lovely people who have helped me keep it running.  Everything helps me out immensely, even just voting.  But some have gone far above and beyond the "call of duty" and made the group shine.

This journal made my birthday extra special: animalsoftheworld.deviantart.c…

And so in return I'd like to do little features for my admin who posted it for me.  :huggle:  :iconlittleheartsplz:
