It all started with one special follower….
To celebrate 100,000 followers I am going to be giving away 3 small, signed Petit Prints. This Friday, Jan 18 sometime between 7pm and 9pm EST, I will randomly choose one person who has “liked” this post. I will message them and arrange to mail them a print. (As long as they are on my followers list.)
Then, I will randomly choose one person who has “reblogged” this post. That person will also win a print. PLUS, they can pick one of their followers to receive a print. (Both must be on my follower list.)
So, “like” this post or “reblog” this post if you would like a chance to get a little gift in the mail from Canada.
And thank you again for all the support, encouragement, questions and comments. They float my boat.
Born in Africa to French wildlife photographer parents, Tippi Degré had a most unusual childhood. The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals including a 28-year old African elephant named Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, lion cubs, giraffes, an Ostrich, a mongoose, crocodiles, a baby zebra, a cheetah, giant bullfrogs, and even a snake. Africa was her home for many years and Tippi became friends with the ferocious animals and tribespeople of Namibia. As a young child, the French girl said, “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends.”
