Lessons from Mom

According to Safari Channel, this is Mixo (one of their "regular" leopards) not sharing his kill with his brother. Now, you know his mom taught him to share with his brothers & sisters! Would you just look at those teeth!

Wild Earth TV

One of my latest favorite sites on the net is Wild Earth TV ( Some of the channels on the site are stationary live webcams at various locations around the globe, such as cams that broadcast 24/7 views of eagle nests. My favorite channel is the Safari Channel. It broadcasts from Djuma Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands in South Africa. Drivers & camera crews go out and you get to watch live feed every day. Plus they put together diaries of the highlights, complete with narration. There is amazing video on a regular basis. It's a good way to start my day, and until I can afford to go there in person it's a nice way to sight-see.

This was a great bird be-bopping along:
Saw several broods of chicks:
...and lovely moss-covered bridges:
We didn't make it up in the Tower of the Americas, but it dominated the skyline. Maybe next trip!
