Hyacinth macaw at sunrise (best larger)    The hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) is the largest of the macaws and is an endangered species.  A family of wild birds lived a short walk from my hotel in the Pantanal, but they wouldn't tolerate a close approach and flew off screeching alarm calls everytime we came within photo distance of the tree.  Early yesterday morning before sunrise I very carefully and very slowly snuck up to the tree where they were nesting and managed to get a few shots, including of this juvenile, as the sun first hit the tree.  They flew off as they usually do to feed after sunrise with no alarm calls, so I didn't disturb their natural behaviour.    18/11/14 www.allenfotowild.com

Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle

Saturday, December 27, 2014  "PURPLE FOUNTAIN GRASS"  “Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.” ~ Hal Borland  "Of all the ornamental grasses, of which there are many, purple fountain grass (aka Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’) is probably one of the most popular. The purple or burgundy-colored foliage and soft, fuzzy-like blooms (which are followed by purplish seedheads) make a bold statement in the garden—on their own or grouped with other plantings. Growing purple fountain grass is easy and requires little maintenance once established." ~ Reprinted text from here:  http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/purple-fountain-grass/grow-purple-fountain-grass.htm  Have a great weekend!

May 16, 2014  "I love to dance and perform the Argentine tango - it breathes love!" ~ Gilles Marini  Here's another shot from the tango exhibition in Argentina.  The dance is so fun to watch, and the costumes are just awesome.  No one does it better (IMHO) than the Argentinians.  Enjoy!  TGIF My friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
February 19, 2013    "Oh............ my poor, aching feet!"    Anyone that has ever worked a trade show or convention knows that it's long days and it's hard on your feet and back because you stand almost 100% of the time.  And the Safari Club International show was no different.      This lady and another stood out in front of the booth across the aisle from Bill's booth, all day every day.  They never sat down.  I could feel her pain.    For the deer hunters that are members of the Daily Community, I invite you to check out the following photo of some of the most incredible antlers I've ever seen.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Travel/Vacations/18186464_wfxNtK#!i=2371099824&k=WNx43SP    Have a red-letter day today my friends!

May 14,2014  For those of you who were around when I did my #2 daughter's pre-wedding photos several years ago in Waxahachie, TX and now Candace's  --you'll recognize this mural.  It's one of my favorite places to pose people for photos.  It's on the side of an old building in town that used to be a tattoo shop, so I guess that's why the butterfly wings were painted on the building.  Today, the building is a very popular restaurant, and many times cars are parked in front of the butterfly - but we got lucky the afternoon of her shoot that there weren't any cars there.  "I remember when I was in school, they would ask, 'What are you going to be when you grow up?' and then you'd have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride." ~ Gwen Stefani  Thank you all for your generous and thoughtful comments on my photo of the Jamaican sunset yesterday, I am greatly appreciative.

September 3, 2014  This old farm house was near to Altamont, Utah.  The area around it was fenced off, so I wasn't able to get very close.  Nevertheless, I wanted to capture it because it seemed lonely, but loved.  What I mean by loved is that someone took the time to put a fence around it to (I suppose) keep vandals away from it.  And the tattered curtains that are still in the windows. the decorative screen door and the mailbox made me imagine that perhaps this was the home of a beloved grandparent or great-grandparent, and the heirs were trying to keep it as a reminder of a happy childhood.  Who knows?  That's just what I thought of when seeing it.  "The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe."  ~ Masanobu Fukuoka  Create some memories today my friends.
