    Thanks,
    Mary,

    The eagle (sorry, I forgot the species) was captive bird that was displayed to us tourists while visiting the Colca Canyon area near Arequipa, Peru. The bird was just displaying it's wingspan and I zoomed in for a closer look at the gorgeous eyes.

    Photo #12335 is a female leopard lounging after a meal of fresh Impala antelope. With her belly full she allowed to get very close, but after 20 minutes of our gawking she got up and walked away. I hoped the photo would show how well their camouflage works. The shot was taken on the Simbavadi tract in South Africa. The remainder of the Impala carcass was less than 20 yards from the big cat.

    Marcelo,

    The structures are "coke ovens". This particular group is located near Redstone, Colorado.

    I new it, Coke ovens. These babies are in excellent shape like they have been used recently. The ones I've seen look like holes in the side of a cliff.

    Voni's pictures

    Voni, I'm really enjoying your pictures. Some one said you liked the color red?

    Voni, the colour red.... Pfttt! How did you ever make that association? Don't believe the rumors, it's all a facade, everyone knows Voni's favorite colour is black, no blue! Let's just say, in Monty Pythons, search for the Holy Grail Voni would have no trouble crossing a bridge, and wouldn't need to know the aerodynamic factors of a coconut laden swallow, African or European.

    Thanks! I've had a secret chuckle as I associated each of the last few pictures.

    Memories are made of this.

    And, yes, RED is my color. When I started riding in the 70's I wanted to be visible.
    It's worked for me. Quite well.
    And my students loved quizing me as to where my RED was that day!
