I'm Here in the Pantanal in Brazil with a very slow Internet

Well we have been here for about four days and it is beyond the beyond.  Macaws, anteaters, caimans, Buff Necked Ibis.  My vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds.  Here are a few photographs if they will upload:

K E N Y A

Finally after a year I've put together a book of photographs taken by Yumiko and me while we were in Kenya last August.  Here's a link. Go ahead, be brave,  click on that link, pull up a chair, and relax and enjoy. http://www.blurb.com/books/8151470-k-e-n-y-a

Big Boy or Girl in Valley Forge today

I had a mission to find a Praying Mantis in Valley Forge today.   Lots of egg sacks were laid last year  at Paulings Farm.  I drove there today, walked down into the lower field and searched the tall grasses and voila -  There he or she was.  Just magnificent.

Osprey at Eastern College Pond!!

I couldn't believe it, but I guess I could because Eastern College Pond never ceases to amaze.  Yesterday as I was looking for something to photograph, there in the sky was an Osprey!!  First time ever to see one at Eastern.  He circled for a bit and then landed high in a tree overlooking the pond.  I waited and waited for him to descend down and pick up one of the huge carp, but he just said "Not this time."
