Japanese Artist Creates Botanical Arrangements Inspired by Nature

Raku Inoue is a Japanese artist and a photographer who presently lives in Montreal, Canada. He creates botanical arrangements into shapes of various animals and insects. The delicate portraits of owl, tiger, whale, flamingos and more are created using flowers, twigs, leaves, and seeds from his backyard. He also gets flowers such as roses and baby's breath from his nearby florists, and people from all over the world send him plants to help him along his creative adventure. 

Recently, he hosted a giveaway to raise awareness about endangered species and to raise fund for an organization that helps animals. You can view more of his work from the past and get updates on his new creations on Instagram.

Wow, you are still here, after all these years. For some reasons, I fell off the blog wagon and now I clicked serendipitously on an old history link and here you are, oh my, what a wonderful surprise. Just followed you on insta, too. Just wow, you have no idea how happy I am to have found you again
