The heatwave we are experiencing took its toll on some birds- Never seen one of these lapwings ever do this.

Fortunately, only one Santa was slightly injured in the annual Running of the Reindeer.

if Santa or anyone else tried to run with these guys, look out

these Cape Buffalo, led a huge herd, with bulls, females and calves, along with assorted zebras and wildebeests toward a fresh water stream in the Ngorongoro Crater Tanzania.

The problem was that there was a line of vehicles in the way and more importantly:

a lion and lioness on the far side of the vehicles. The lion and lioness were resting after attempting to make little lions and lionesses if you catch my meaning.

Normally the herd animals would have flowed right around the vehicles but the lions made them nervous and they just stayed where they were moving up and down the road a bit but not leaving. It was a traffic jam of sorts.

We ran out of time and patience and moved on. It is doubtful if anything happened except the lions moving on and the herd animals finally getting to water.

A small carnivore/omnivore. These rolly-polly fellows, inevitably branded as "thieves," do very well in close association with humans. I've wondered if they are among the animals whose populations have increased over the past century.

Learned my 1st wild life lesson b/c of a "masked bandit, chased 1 with collapsed army shovel when 8, mom caught up w/mè as it went up a tree. I was then taught not to chase wild life b/c you might catch it and it might not like being caught. The "Masked Bandit" had tried to get a turtle I had collected and put into a bait can.

One of the benefits of most birds (except for vultures) having extremely poor senses of smell is that they get to eat skunk, if they can catch and kill one.

aye - we have a healthy population of owls here also, and they certainly work hard at the skunk population...

change of pace - kinda like it, I haven't shot a black and white photograph in years.

East African Crown Crane at the Topeka Zoological Park

truth time. Since it was such a nice day, 40s (F), bright and sunny, no wind to speak of, I was trying out my new to me HD PENTAX-D FA 150-450mm F4.5-5.6 ED DC AW with my K 3 and didn't realize how it was set. Somehow I came out with the Black and White photo. I was experimenting with trying to hand hold the big guy.
