On the Edge

by Daniel Smith

The mountain lion was nearly annihilated at the beginning of the 20th century by ranchers and hunters. Since the 1960s, however, the mountain lion population has rebounded thanks to new protective laws. In artist Daniel Smith's home state of Montana, the growing number of cougars has created some overlap in territory between the wild and civilization. A great cat sitting at the edge of a driveway is a sight that has become all too familiar to many residents, including Daniel Smith, who recently looked up into a tree on his property to find a cougar wrapped around the upper branches like an overgrown kitten.

The mountain lion in Smith's newest painting, however, is in his glory in the wild. Smith's detailed style captures the curl of the cougar's tail and the tension in his muscles so realistically that you may feel the need to slowly back away from this cat On the Edge.

The Alphas

by Judy Larson

Truly a family unit, a wolf pack is almost always composed of an alpha male, his alpha female mate and their offspring. During mating season, both the alpha male and female will fight to prevent others from breeding with their partner. Their monogamous relationship prevails until death, illness or injury prevents them from mating, or until one is ostracized from the pack. Courtship between the pair is playful, affectionate and devoted. After the annual mating, the alpha female will select a suitable site for her den near water, which the nursing mother will need. She prefers a wooded area to aid concealment, and the same location may be used throughout her breeding life, and perhaps, by successive alpha females within the same pack. Preparations on the den begin about six weeks after conception, three weeks before her pups are born. And so, the cycle of life endures, through the alliance, friendship, bond and cooperation of The Alphas.
