Trustom Pond is a closed lagoon in South Kingston, Washington County, Rhode Island, United States. It is one of nine coastal lagoons (referred to as "salt ponds" by locals) in Southern Rhode Island. It is inhabited by over 300 species of birds, 40 species of mammals, and 20 species of reptiles and amphibians. As such, it is a popular bird-watching destination. (Wikipedia)

A dainty female Black-tailed Gnatcatcher pausing for a decisive moment.

 

Uncommon and local in dry desert scrub. A very small bird about the size of a tennis ball, usually found in pairs. I only saw one. WOW... does it fly fast !

  

These wasps will feed on Honey Bees by paralysing them and flying off to their nests by carrying the bee upside down. When in the nest the female will cover the dead bee in a special chemical that she secretes which will help any harmful bacteria and fungi from growing that can kill the larva. These wasps were formally rare in the UK but are now expanding their range and can now be found local in southern England and have now been recorded in Wales. These wasps can be seen from July to mid September.

  

We saw both Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs at Merritt Island National Wildlife Reserve. When they stand next to each other, there is no question about which is which, but seen at different locals in non-breeding plumage, things are a little more difficult.

 

The Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca) is considerably larger, more robust and with a thicker bill that is both larger than the Lesser's, and relatively longer (compared to head size). In addition, the Greater's bill usually has a slight upturn as shown in this picture.

 

The Lesser Yellowlegs (Triga flavipes) will shown in another post.

Of all the experiences I had while in Madagascar, going out at night to photograph these curious animals was the best.

 

Wikipedia - Although the aye-aye weighs a mere 4 pounds in the wild, this tiny animal is viewed as the harbinger of death by locals in Madagascar, the only place on Earth where you'll find these creatures in nature.

 

According to legend, the aye-aye, with its dark eyes, long fingers and ghoulish appearance, is thought to sneak into the dwellings of nearby villagers and use its middle finger — considerably longer than its other fingers — to pierce the hearts of sleeping humans.

 

In fact, the animal uses its middle finger to find and harvest insect larvae in trees. It prowls at night, tapping its finger rapidly against tree branches to listen for hollowed-out pockets in the wood that hold grubs. The aye-aye then chews an opening in the wood and claws out the grub with its long middle finger.

 

Superstitions around the aye-aye may have developed because it is apparently unafraid of humans. It will even walk right up to human passersby to take a closer look. The aye-aye's reputation is, of course, entirely unfounded. However, because of the way the aye-aye is perceived, this perfectly harmless creature is often killed on sight.

 

The combination of these attacks and the fact that its habitat is dwindling has taken a toll on the animal. The aye-aye is now listed as "near threatened" by IUCN Red List.

The last post of the locals in a speed boat is really not the norm. Most people who live on the lake go about their daily lives by slowly and silently rowing their boats.

Eyeshine is a visible effect of the tapetum lucidum. When light shines into the eye of an animal having a tapetum lucidum, the pupil appears to glow.

It is 1688 and William III of England is the new ruler who has to juggle the Scottish revolts of the Jacobites. In fact, the Jacobites, mostly Catholics, find it very difficult to swear allegiance to an anti-Catholic, anti-Stuart and anti-French ruler and instead want the return to the throne of James who was exiled to France.

The Jacobite riots are numerous but always see the victory of the English army: Killiencrankie, Dunkeld and finally Cromdale.

William, however, knowing that he had to attempt a pacification in the Highland territory, offered the Scots a chance to be forgiven for their riots.

By January 1, 1692, the clans were due to make an oath of allegiance before a magistrate. Anyone who refused would pay the consequences.

Some clans agreed to swear allegiance while others took time and thought about it to the last. One of these was Alexander MacDonald of Glencoe who arrived at Fort William last to take the oath in front of Colonel Hill who, however, did not have the title to accept the Oath. The highlander therefore had to go to Inverness to swear by arriving on January 6, beyond the deadline which was January 1.

At this point, under the pretext of having to give an example to those who had not sworn allegiance to the new regent, a real conspiracy set in motion against the MacDonalds.

 

At the end of January 120 men belonging to the Argylle infantry led by Robert Campbell- with the excuse of having to collect a contribution, were hosted in the MacDonald's estate in Glencoe. Although the Campbells were historically enemies of the MacDonalds, the latter hosted them for 2 weeks according to Highland traditions. On February 12, however, a clear order arrived:

Sir, you are ordered with the following to capture the Rebels, the MacDonalds of Glencoe, and to pass all those under the age of 70 to the sword. You will have particular attention so that the old Fox and her Sons do not manage to escape and make sure to cut every escape route. This order will have to be done by five in the morning when I come to you with reinforcements. If I have not arrived for that hour, carry out the orders without me. This is a Special Order of the King for the good and salvation of the country, so that roots and branches are cut from these unbelievers.

And so during the night between 12 and 13 February, housing was burned and about 40 people were brutally killed, violating the traditional Highland hospitality code. Many died from the cold of a winter valley which certainly did not help the fugitives. Only 12 escaped the massacre which is still remembered today as one of the most cowardly in the history of Scotland.

Today, a plaque at the entrance to a historic local in the valley, the Clacaigh Inn, recalls the event with a sharp phrase:

"Entry to street vendors and Campbells is forbidden."

Another shot fo this gorgeous female leopard named Kazuri by the locals in the Maasai Mara Kenya.

Fairly common but local in extensive reed beds. Not easy to see well but sometimes feeds at edges, often very low or on adjacent muddy ground.

Flight typically low over reeds with whirring wingbeats. Often in small groups. No other species looks very similar, particularly given habitat and behaviour: note bright cinnamon-brown plumage, long tail, and yellowish bill; male has blue-grey head and broad black moustaches.

BNSF 1462 West completes its set out for the CTRR on a Saturday afternoon back on Sept. 14, 2014.

 

Back in the Fall of 2014, BNSF's Grand Rapids Local was running most days with SD60Ms. The Rapids had an earlier afternoon call time and you could chase the whole westbound trip in daylight. I probably should have done that chase more when they were running with these 60Ms. Maybe I was scared off by their second patch job, but looking back I'm got at least a few shots of them on the Rapids.

 

The Grand Rapids Local no longer runs on Saturdays and is now a M-F job out of Superior, usually with SD40-2s and a later 1800 call time. Would be nice if they went back to an earlier afternoon call as it's tough to get shots of them west of Cloquet now, even on the longest days of summer.

"It is difficult to characterize the migration of this widespread species, because of its extreme geographic variability (there are seven migratory subspecies in North America). The first Yellow Warblers to arrive in the United States are those that reach southern California in mid-March. These birds, representing two subspecies, pass up the Pacific coast and reach southern Alaska by mid-May. The other five subspecies arrive in the United States in early April. This wave of birds passes through the southern states along a broad front stretching from Arizona to Florida. Their movement is rapid; some of these birds will reach the Great Lakes region before the end of April, and others may arrive in interior Alaska by mid-May.

 

Breeds from Alaska east across Canada to Newfoundland and south to southern California, northern Oklahoma, and northern Georgia; local in southern Florida. Winters in tropics."

Benagil’s beautiful sea cave is listed in the world’s “Top 10 Coolest Caves” published this week by American online newspaper The Huffington Post.

Describing the natural rock formation, the website wrote: “You've probably seen pictures of Benagil’s sea cave before. To get to the iconic cave in the Algarve, you'll have to charter a local fishing boat, but we think the trip is well worth it.”

Benagil’s cave is actually one of many caves along Lagoa’s coastline but certainly the most stunning attracting hundreds of visitors each summer.

Benagil caves were also on a list of the “50 Most Breathtaking Places to Visit Before You Die” by Singaporean website The Smart Local in February.

A number of boat trips to visit the caves are offered by local companies based at Benagil beach.

The American website has already praised Ponta da Piedade in Lagos describing it as “possibly the most beautiful beach on Earth” and Lisbon as one of the “nine best European cities to visit with friends”.

NS train D70 is en route from NS's Voltz Yard to BNSF's Argentine Yard as it approaches 25th St. at Santa Fe JCT on the KCT North-South Corridor. On this day, the train was led by an Ex-ATSF B40-8 now wearing the Heritage I paint scheme and an Ex-BN SD60M still in Cascade Green. Over to the left, a southbound BNSF manifest can be seen approaching North Chicago JCT.

 

The searchlight signal in the picture still stands today along with several others and all are safe at least for now.

 

What you likely won't ever see here again is a former Santa Fe 4-axle Dash 8 leading a transfer or anything else for that matter. The BNSF B40-8 No. 580 was a part of the Kansas City Transfer Pool for several years and was seen frequently roaming around town. In the summer of 2017, it was bad ordered and sent to Topeka where it was then stored. Currently, this engine is still residing at Topeka, but it is now LUFS (Laid Up For Sale).

 

NS train D70 also no longer delievers automotive traffic across town from NS's Voltz Yard near Birmingham, MO to BNSF's Argentine Yard in Kansas City, KS. After NS began implementing Precision Scheduled Railroading, this operating ceased and anything at Voltz bound for the BNSF is picked up by NS train 112. When this job did run, it almost always ran with BNSF power, whether it be from transfers to NS's Avondale Yard or just any road power that needed to be returned. 2/8/15.

At this historic pier an estimated 1 million Irish emigrants bade farewell to loved ones as they left for America and Canada.

 

Heartbreak Pier, as it was dubbed by locals in Cobh, her last port of call, was the departure point for generations of Irish emigrants from the then Queenstown, including the 123 people who boarded the SS Titanic on April 11th, 1912.

 

The Titanic passengers departed from the White Star Line Pier on board the tenders PS Ireland and PS America to join the ship, which had moored off Roche’s Point before departing for New York.

 

Of those 123 passengers, just 44 were to survive when, on April 14th, the SS Titanic hit an iceberg some 600km south of Newfoundland and went down with the loss of 1,517 lives.

Once a very common bird in eastern North America, the Red-headed Woodpecker is now uncommon and local in many regions.

 

The Red-headed Woodpecker is also referred to as: half-a-shirt, shirt tail bird, jellycoat, flag bird, or flying checker-board.

 

“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”

― John Muir

The lonely road or the path less taken is usually where I head in most situations there are enough lemmings in the world to take up my slack of non-conformity and I am comfortable being on the outside looking in as an individual, that being said I have no problem falling in line where needed societally when it make sense.

 

Kinderdijk after the park closes becomes this hauntingly beautiful landscape photographers dream and if you are lucky enough you are rewarded with magnificent skies to go with the scenery if you are not you will have to create what you need.

 

In the 13th century the locals in this low lying area tried to make a go of it between two rivers, coming from a flood plain area in my home province I know that these areas are sometimes the most fertile due to the flood waters depositing nutrient rich silt onto the crop land but you need a strategy to keep yourself dry.

 

The locals flood strategy was to create a series of dikes, channels and sluices to protect their houses but still flood the farmlands with fertilizer and this sufficed until the 18th century when the earth works were failing rather than rebuild the labor intensive dike system new technology was applied, the windmill, thus Kinderdijk the park was born

One more for this run at the Erie Lackawanna. An RS3 has local in tow by the yard in Akron in June 1973. The 1036 was built for the Erie. We were fortunate that the EL stationed RS3's in Ohio for local duty during the last years. I hardly never saw a GP7 or GP9. I forget the story but it was unusual to see road power over by the engine house. I think there was an unplanned repair.

CP Train 281 with an all EMD lash-up, is rolling along just west of Reeseville, WI.

My day started chasing a KBS train toward Lafayette, IN. I made it to Raub, IN. and gave up, since it only had one unit on the front, and 2 on the rear. Then shot a UP local in Watseka, and a CSX train in Milford, IL. Then news came across the wire! CP 281 was getting ready to leave Bensenville yard, to head west toward St. Paul, MN., with the SD60M Beaver leading the rest of the killer lash-up! A quick google map search showed it was 4hrs (259 miles) to the shot I wanted. So off I went!! Here is the first shot of the chase, which would end in Lyndon Station, WI.

A lot of miles put on the truck this day, but I couldn't pass this train up.

Another view from a productive chase of the KCS Sulphur Springs based local in 1984. There are 4 other views from that day's chase in my KCS folder.

This striking and unmistakable bird was a favorite of early ornithologists such as Alexander Wilson and Audubon. Often conspicuous because of its strong pattern, harsh calls, and active behavior in semi-open country, it tends to occur in small colonies. Although it migrates only short distances, little groups of migrants may be noticeable in early fall and late spring. Once a very common bird in eastern North America, the Red-headed Woodpecker is now uncommon and local in many regions.

Audubon Guide to North American Birds

The Crocodiles of the Okavango Delta have suffered from over-hunting in the past and it was only intervention of few conservation-minded individuals - and an intricate under water system of tunnels - that saved the species.

 

For many years guides and locals in the upper reaches of the Okavango Delta wondered where Crocodiles disappeared to when they moved from view into the vast papyrus beds that dominated this part of the Delta.

Recent discoveries have shown a vast network of tunnels under the papyrus that enable the animals to navigate from one side of a papyrus float to the other in a matter of seconds. The underground lairs also allow the Crocodiles to stay hidden for extended lengths of time.
