Giant anteater  The giant anteater or ant bear (Myrmecophaga tridactyla) is the largest member of the anteater family, weighing up to 90 lbs.  They are very primitive looking creatures that evolved around 25 million years ago. They are an endangered species that is insectivorous and nocturnal.  Its tiny head contains a tongue up to 1.5 ft long, and it spends its days foraging for ants and termites. It tears the termite mounds apart with its razor sharp claws. The giant anteater has no teeth and mashes the ants against the roof of its mouth. It sometimes uses its gigantic tail as a blanket.  The giant anteater has poor eyesight but a very keen sense of smell, and we were fortunate to find 4 of them yesterday early in the morning in the country south of Campo Grande in fields off a dirt road....this individual and a family of 3 consisting of an adult and two juveniles.  We were able to get close enough to photograph them by stalking them very quietly downwind so they didn't catch our scent.  20/11/14 www.allenfotowild.com

11/20/14 -  Skulls and chile peppers!  Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the Mexican bird of paradise flower and thanks to everyone who identified the flower!  I had no idea so many of you would know it by name.
For some reason the cracks between the bricks in our front walk are always cooler than the bricks themselves, even though the cracks (dirt filled) are darker than the bricks.  If the temperature of the surface is near the freezing level, there can be a preferential build-up of snow in the cracks.  The loop and miscellaneous blobs may have been from snow dropping off of overhanging limbs.  DP324-2014  Posted Thursday, November 20; processed ditto We have a little more snow on the ground now, but nothing like what got dumped on parts of western New York state.  Nor will our temperatures rebound into the 50s and 60s as it is expected to do there.  We got lucky.  It helps to live upwind rather than downwind of one of the Great Lakes.

19.11.14 - Ripples  It was another of those subtle pastel sunsets yesterday as I walked the dog along the river. I was just getting ready to shoot a perfectly still reflection in the glassy water when I startled a duck, and as he swam away he left these ripples. I actually prefer the rippled water to when it was totally still.
Colorful Serenity  Nov 20  I've photographed this view of Jordan lake during the summer many times, featuring lush green trees and boats zooming through the waterway.  However, I love  this calm view with the colorful trees ushering in the fall season.

Permanent Residents19 November 2014 -- 323/365East Providence, Rhode IslandI stopped at Bold Point on my way home from work today.  This flock of Canada Geese were hanging out off-shore, just floating in place.  They provided an interesting foreground for a late afternoon photo of the river and bridge.  What struck me, though, was the fact that they were still here despite temperatures that dropped into the 20s today.  You see, Canada Geese are allegedly migratory.  At least, they were migratory when I was a kid.  We'd see huge flocks of them flying south throughout September and October, and those flocks would return north in April.  Not so much anymore, though.  As people started feeding the geese in the ponds and rivers around the state, and as their numbers grew dramatically, their migratory behavior changed.  Now, large flocks of the geese are permanent residents and they've turned into a major nuisance, polluting ponds and lakes, and turning most open fields (like golf courses) into fertilizer mine fields.  Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, and boost white.  A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
