picture of the day

found @ some guy's birdwatching blog
he says "...To end the trip we walked along part of the river where a surprise highlight for me was a very well fed Porcupine literally out on a limb eating twigs about 25ft up in the air."

melt my heart

all of these pictures were taken from who i know got them from, who i think got them from somebody else. this is a happy mamma tamandua and newborn baby.
(tamanduas are also known as lesser anteaters b/c they are smaller than giant anteaters). thought these were some great pictures.

click the image to see much larger. found at one of my favorite sites: BibliOdyssey
intriguing collection of prints, illustrations/books & history. ♥

image above: "Martin Luther’s first translation of the entire New Testament ['Das Newe Testament Deutzsch'] from the Greek original was published by Melchior Lotter the Younger in September 1522, with woodcut illustrations by Lucas Cranach." can anybody tell me what story this is illustrating? it didn't have it marked where i found it. fascinating imagery.

october 1st, 1995: Robert Overcracker rides a jet-ski over the brink of the Horseshoe Falls to help promote awareness for the homeless. His parachute did not open and Robert ended up promoting better parachutes. He plugned to his death and his body was never recovered. An egyptian tourist captured this amazing image.
