Welcoming the newest members of my family, two adorable Maine Coons kittens, Kanzi (L) and Kosey (R). It was hard to get a decent pic of these guys since they rarely stay still... unless they're sleeping.

A Brown Pelican preparing to do the butterfly stroke. ;-)
St. Helena Island, SC
Did you know?...
Pelicans incubate their eggs with the skin of their feet, essentially standing on the eggs to keep them warm. In the mid-twentieth century the pesticide DDT caused pelicans to lay thinner eggs that cracked under the weight of incubating parents. After nearly disappearing from North America in the 1960s and 1970s, Brown Pelicans made a full comeback thanks to pesticide regulations.

While the sun was setting in the west, its colorful reflection in the eastern skies provided a wonderful backdrop for the moonrise. And suddenly my German Shepherd, Joshua, photobombed the image at just the right time making the pic complete.

As I was out photographing the first sunrise of the new year, my German Shepherd, Joshua, stepped into the frame. I liked the way he was silhouetted and his elongated shadow. Josh loves the ocean and staring out into its beauty so I took a couple of pics with him in it to remember the day.

“The winds, the sea, and the moving tides are what they are. If there is wonder and beauty and majesty in them, science will discover these qualities... If there is poetry in my book about the sea, it is not because I deliberately put it there, but because no one could write truthfully about the sea and leave out the poetry.” ~ Rachel Carson

"Way Up High" 
One of my fav sightings in the Masai Mara. Spotted this leopard relaxing near the top of a tree and looking down on us. Had to use a 2x converter on the 300mm to try to get a decent shot. Had the lens and camera positioned on the back of one of the seats in the jeep and tilted upwards.

Handsome gemsbok
Etosha, Namibia
Did you know?... from the age of around 5-6, male gemsboks establish territories. These territories are around 25 square kilometres and may be defended for up to three years. During this time, the male rounds up herds of females and young gemsbok into his territory to gain sole mating rights with the females.

Post bath playfulness.
This little guy was so full of himself after his fun in the waterhole.

Let's hope this little guy lives a long life. Did you know that every fifteen minutes another elephant is poached for it's ivory? Yes, we lose another ele every 15 minutes. The illegally gotten "white gold" helps fund terrorist groups. It is a dire time for our eles and if drastic measures aren't taken soon, they will be extinct in the wild in another 10 years.

"Solitude"
A lone oryx among the dunes
Sossusvlei, Namibia

According to IUCN, the southern African oryx is listed as a species of least concern but in East Africa it is listed as near threatened. Populations trends are declining apart from in a few protected areas. It had already declined heavily around the margins of its range. Threats from hunting and overgrazing are continuing and it is predicted that the overall level of decline will reach at least 25% over the last 3 generations.

R.I.P. Kealy "Munsters" "Love Bug" Schepis
April 10, 2001 - May 21, 2014

How do you say goodbye to your best friend? I don't know how to. After a two and a half year battle with a chronic illness, Kealy's health deteriorated over the last few weeks. He was a valiant warrior and fought like hell to beat this thing but it eventually took its toll on him. 
The vet came over yesterday afternoon to help him cross over to the Rainbow Bridge where he will be healthy and strong again, and wait for me to join him.  He was brave until the very end. I held him in my arms as the vet helped him cross over and he took his last breath.
 I can't believe he is gone. A huge hole is in my heart. I want to see him jump up on the counter and aggravate me for his treats. He was such a wonderful companion, by my side for 13 years, always with unconditional love - actingmo... more »

The vet came over yesterday afternoon to help him cross over to the Rainbow Bridge where he will be healthy and strong again, and wait for me to join him.  He was brave until the very end. I held him in my arms as the vet helped him cross over and he took his last breath.
 I can't believe he is gone. A huge hole is in my heart. I want to see him jump up on the counter and aggravate me for his treats. He was such a wonderful companion, by my side for 13 years, always with unconditional love - acting more like a dog than a cat - and brought joy wherever the road took us. A master manipulator when it came to treats, he would look at me with those big green eyes, working me hard to get his way. 
He was such a character. This house feels so empty without him. I'm a total basket case. My heart is breaking .Oh, why do the good have to die so young?
I will always love you, Kealy, my little love bug. ___

Did you know?...
A lion’s roar can be heard from as far as 5 miles away. They can run for short distances at 50 mph and leap as far as 36 feet. A lion’s heels don’t touch the ground when it walks.

“What are you?” I said irritably.

Caught these four playfully trying to steal a wildebeest's horn from one another. The antics of babes.

Took this pic of handsome Kealy with the point & shoot as he was poised so "regally" on the couch. He's still holding his own against the liver disease that he's been sick with for the last 20 months. For what he's been through... the endless trips to the vet, syringe feeding, all the meds, he's still got a great personality. Our already close bond has strengthened.  He's having more good days sprinkled with a few bad days here and there. He's not regained all his weight and is still thin for a Maine Coon but he seems to be doing OK... for now. :-)

A very curious Grevy's zebra stallion 
Shaba National Reserve, Kenya

Grevy’s zebra is classified as Endangered (EN) on the IUCN Red List and listed on Appendix I of CITES.

Numbers of Grevy’s zebra underwent a dramatic decline in the 1970s when the coat became prized on the international fashion circuit. In the 1980s there were 15,000 Grevy’s zebra, with this numbering crashing to around 2,500 today, representing an 83 percent decline in the global population over the last three decades. Commercial poaching for skins has since declined due to effective protection measures put in place by Kenya and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). However, in some areas, Grevy’s zebra is still hunted for subsistence meat and some ethnic groups use their fat for medicinal purposes, such as treating tuberculosis.

However, in some areas, Grevy’s zebra is still hunted for subsistence meat and some ethnic groups use their fat for medicinal purposes, such as treating tuberculosis. Habitat loss presents a major threat to the long-term survival of the species as grasslands and water sources have significantly declined due to unplanned grazing by livestock. In addition, there has been a significant, very recent decline in the species in northern Kenya due to disease and drought.

“Does the giraffe know what he's for? Or care? Or even think about his place in things? A giraffe has a black tongue twenty-seven inches long and no vocal cords. A giraffe has nothing to say. He just goes on giraffing.” ~ Robert Fulghum

Notice the tongue along with the leaves. Gotta love the giraffe.

“The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see.” ~ Edward Abbey
