Thought I would share this video.  Ralph Resnik is a wild like artist from Boksburg, South Africa.  Thought Dennis and Nolan might get a kick out of watching this too:)

 :thankyou:  Jill for sharing. I found it very interesting and would have liked to hear more of his life's journey, such as how he ended up in Israel, which question was asked in the interview but wasn't addressed. I went onto You Tube to see if I could find out more about him but there wasn't much.  His art is beautiful, thanks once again.

Thank you for sharing this video, Jill. I did not know animals see only in monochrome colours!
I copied an interesting text about the red colour and bull fighting.

Bullfighting conjures a common image: An angry bull charging at a matador’s small red cape, the muleta. But, why does the beast charge at the sight of red?

Actually, it doesn’t. Bulls, along with all other cattle, are color-blind to red. Thus, the bull is likely irritated not by the muleta’s color, but by the cape’s movement as the matador whips it around. In support of this is the fact that a bull charges the matador’s other cape — the larger capote — with equal fury. Yet this cape is magenta on one side and gold or blue on the other.

Still don’t believe it? In 2007, the Discovery Channel’s MythBusters tested a live bull on color versus movement in three separate experiments. First, they put three stationary flags, which were red, blue and white, in the bull’s enclosure. The bull charged all three flags regardless of color. Next, they put three dummies dressed in red, blue and white in the ring, and again the bull charged all three without discrimination (and actually charged the red dummy last).
