+Scott McGee captures me in awe of the fantastical forest I hope to call home one day soon.
+Crtr Grl stops on a moss covered bridge in the magical Staircase region of Olympic National Park, WA.

You couldn't tell from this photo, but CrtrGrl was very sick when I shot this. The magical scenery motivated her to get out and keep exploring, in spite of how she was feeling. We're busy planning our next adventure up to Oregon and Washington for 2018 and we're hoping to see many more magical scenes like this one!

Ever wonder how alive are the forests of our planet? Do trees & plants talk? An amazing +TED Talk video inspired our next music video that we so enjoyed creating.

+Scott McGee & I were so blown away by Suzanne Simard's (+UBC Faculty of Forestry) TED Talk, "How trees talk to each other" https://youtu.be/Un2yBgIAxYs! We all know nature is alive, but we weren't aware of the amazing way that trees & plants communicate & share resources via a network of fungi, much like a computer network. We were so much in awe of this new knowledge that it is our inspiration in creating this music video.

We used our creativity to share this important feature of nature in a whole new way. We highlight the importance of protecting our forests rather than destroying via logging & development. Each time we cut down a tree, we're damaging the mycorrhizal network that the entire forest depends upon. I may have hugged a tree or 2 the day we recorded this video.

Respect ALL life! 🌲🌳🌿🍁🍃🍂🍄

This is one of my favorite underwater photos that my man, +Scott McGee captured! It hangs so nicely on our wall where I can always stare at it. 😍

Did you know that you can purchase any of Scott's photos as metallic prints? You could either private message us here or go to http://www.underpressurephoto.com/ & check out many of his colorful shots of nature, above & underwater. Go to the "Contact Us" tab & let us know which one you'd like to see on your wall.
Nembrotha Sp. (Nembrotha purpureolineolata?) nudibranch, blue tunicates and stinging hydroids at the shark cavern dive site in Biahah, Bali, Indonesia.

The variety and color of undersea life in Bali is amazing. To me, this photo is candyland, with every square inch of real estate covered by amazing life in technicolor.

Our hearts go out to the friendly residents of Bali, fleeing the potential eruption of Mount Agung and to the island of Puerto Rico, devastated by Hurricane Maria.

Oy vey! So sorry for the delay on releasing my next Bite Size Factoid video. I have a good excuse...I've been working hard on my next Jukebox vid! Yay! I do hope my awesome CrtrRoons forgive me. 🤗

Grub, grub, it's all about grubs! One of my favorite moments of being a Crtr explorer is when I'm greeted by a Crtr I never intended to meet that day. The man, +Scott McGee (http://www.underpressurephoto.com/) & I were ready to shoot some desert spring blooms when we were pleasantly surprised by their temporary residents! Get ready for a short & grubby "Invasion of Chubby Caterpillars!" 🐛

If you like the video plz give it a thumbs up on my YouTube channel. Commenting &/or subscribing to my channel, youtube.com/c/CarolitaInesCrtrGrl, is greatly appreciated & will help expand the Crtr community!

Get Your Grub On!

CrtrRoooons! It's that time again for another Jukebox release! Brace yourselves! The "Shut Up N Luv" video message is pretty clear, but the visuals may hurt your eyes, in more ways than one. 😜 Well, below is a copy of my YouTube description...

"Let me begin with an apology for the colorful wack job that is my brain! Aside from the important message I'm trying to convey in this video & song, I understand if some of you are wiping your eyes from tears & wishing you didn't just see this insanity. Yup, that's what you get for being a CrtrRoon.

On a more serious note, the song & video's message is, clearly, that every single living being on this earth deserves to be loved. The grass, trees, plants, animals of all species & the beautiful variety of people that share this harsh planet desire love, at the very least, respect.

If you survived watching this entire video to the end, then you have witnessed what my mind concocted in my usual comical, goofy, weird ass ways with the help of my ever supportive, hasn't-left-me-yet hubby, +Scott McGee of http://www.underpressurephoto.com/ & music provided by Do Ra Za La Boom."

If you dare, please give this video a thumbs up, leave a comment, share &/or subscribe to my channel: youtube.com/c/CarolitaInesCrtrGrl

Any of the above helps in big ways to expand the Crtr community!

Much luv & respect to all you CrtrRoons & of course all Crtrs!
Go ahead, Get Your Crtr Luv On! 🐾❤️🌿🌳

Hola CrtrRoons! The blog that some of you have been patiently waiting for is finally on my website. Please click this link to view: http://www.crtrgrl.com/cruelty-free-lifestyle/

Some CrtrRoons have been curious on how myself & +Scott McGee of http://www.underpressurephoto.com/ view veganism & what kind of lifestyle we lead today. I hope you enjoy the read & the great shots of some of the precious Crtrs that either live in farms or were rescued by reputable & loving sanctuaries.

Thank you always for your support!

CrtrRooooons! Myself, the man, +Scott McGee of http://www.underpressurephoto.com/, & the musical talent of Do Ra Za La Boom created my 2nd music video, "Why You Do It?"!!

This video is a little darker than the last one, but it is one of the topics that I'm passionate about & continue to fight for. I hope, at the very least, it makes you think a little about how you view & treat animals of all sizes & species, domestic & wild.

Lyrics & detailed description is written underneath the video if you pull down the "Show More" tab on my channel.

Check out my other Crtr videos on my YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/c/CarolitaInesCrtrGrl

Subscribing, Commenting, Giving my videos a thumbs up deserves big Crtr hugs!!! 🐒🐶🐷🐴🐮🦗🦋🐳🐬🐬 I have another 5 new followers since the last time I posted! Woot! Thank you in advance!

It's all about sweet luvn for these Pacific Banana Slugs (Ariolimax Columbianus) that +Scott McGee (http://www.underpressurephoto.com) & I found during our hike in the Hoh Rainforest. Alright, alright! Let's give them some privacy. Jeez ;P

Bite Size Factoid: Let's talk about sex! These hermaphrodites' penises can reach the same length as their body measuring 6-8" long. Guess where it comes out of....their head! Photographed here are 2 slugs both inserting their penises into each other in yin-yang position. Copulation can last several hours. In some cases, apophallation can occur, where once finished they will chew off the other's penis. It's not known why they do this. It could be a competitive fight where one slug wants to be the only one spreading its sperm, but in most cases it's a lose-lose situation because once one starts munching away on the other well, that courageous Crtr will gladly reciprocrate the gesture. Gives a whole new meaning to "give & take". Yikes!

There are more fun factoids, pics & video clips in my latest Bite Size Factoid video featuring these slimy Crtrs via YouTube! https://youtu.be/5597XvabPyE
