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

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.

Diane passed away last night. It snows today.  She owned a small farmhouse and nature was her backyard. Blue jays, ducks, geese, squirrels , chipmunks, and a fox family were safe near the barn and sheds. Many photos of her little critters will remain with me.  He was on the sidewalk in our yard awhile ago.

Thursday, November 20, 2014  "FALL STREAM AHEAD" (Asconopsis Irene Dobkin 'Elmhurst' Orchids)  "I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy and you're set. Promise." ~ Unknown Author  Orchids are among my favorite flowers. These were adorning a table in "The Highlander" home - one of five  homes that we toured during the VESTA Home Show last month. The colors are so perfect for autumn/fall. I applied PicMonkey's "Frost" effect to achieve the look. Your comments on my "His and Hers Throne Chairs" photo yesterday are appreciated. Participation in the DPC has significantly declined.

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.
