A male Southern Elephant Seal rises from a mirror-calm ocean in winter off the coast of Victoria, Australia. It’s a rare visitation, but these large mammals sometimes make their way north from the sub-antarctic islands. .

They can be notoriously grumpy and aggressive especially during the breeding season, however this male was more curious than territorial. In fact, my legs are beneath his chest and I had to use a 20mm lens to capture this frame because he was so close. .

Please join me @jasonedwardsng. .

It's springtime and fox kits of the year have emerged from their dens here in the U.S. and are exploring their worlds. Their moms and dads are out hunting for them all hours of the day and night. Many people think if they see a fox out by day, it must have rabies. But they are simply trying to find something to bring home to their kits to eat. Usually it's rodents of some kind--squirrels, mice, moles. Rabbits. Carrion. Birds. Yes, if your chickens are not secure they may make a go at them. It's part of the risk we chicken owners (we have 10 hens) have to take into account, and deal with. There are all manner of animals that want to eat chickens. How are wild animals supposed to know that this tasty landbound bird belongs to a human? It's just easy prey. We have a very secure coop and have had chickens for over 4 yrs. They roam freely during the day. We have never lost one to a predator, though one died of fright when a Cooper's hawk got ahold of another (which we saved in time). And have had worst risk from someone's dog that came on our property a couple weeks ago and got one in its mouth—but my daughter saw it happening and rescued the hen in time. So have some forgiveness for foxes trying to feed families. And please don't ever use rodenticide, that is, rat bait, in your home or business, as it poisons so much more than rats. Many foxes both adults and kits, are killed by secondary poisoning from rat bait--they eat dead or dying rodents that have eaten the bait, and then die themselves. It's awful. and it’s not just foxes. Cougars, bobcats, hawks, owls, harriers, pet dogs--many many creatures die every day across this country because of anticoagulant rat poison. What’s so ironic is that to get rid of rats we are poisoning the very creatures that control rodent populations better than anything else. Messed up, right?
This is a Red Fox dad being joyously greeted by 2 of his kits after returning to the den. I was in a blind near the den. I learned from that experience, what tremendous fathers foxes are. Many canids boast incredibly devoted fathers, particularly foxes, wolves, coyotes, African wild dogs. Many of us humans could learn a thing or two from them. --.

GELADA BABOON
The gelada sometimes called the bleeding-heart monkey or the gelada

GELADA BABOON The gelada sometimes called the bleeding-heart monkey or the gelada "baboon", is a species found only in the Ethiopian Highlands, with large populations in the Semien Mountains. Geladas are close cousins of baboons but not baboons. Based on IUCN they are not a threatened or endangered species.

"Touch the earth, love the earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your spirit in her solitary places. For the gifts of life are the earth’s and they are given to all, and they are the songs of birds at daybreak, Orion and the Bear, and the dawn seen over the ocean from the beach." ~Henry Beston Happy International Dawn Chorus Day. I couldn’t let the day go by unnoted. This time of year I am up at dawn, my ears awake before the rest of me, listening as hard as I can while I lie in bed. I’m isolating each song, thinking of the bird it belongs to, and excited to hear new species just arriving back to the area to breed. Just yesterday morning—I realized my catbird is back, as his voice mixed with the wood thrush, the winter wren, the cardinal, the robins, the rose-breasted grosbeaks. I haven’t heard a scarlet tanager yet but I am listening, all the time, for that distinctively raspy voice I love so much. Do yourself a favor and sometime in the next week or so, wake up while it’s still dark, get comfortable outside, or inside next to an open window, and just listen to the dawn chorus as it begins with one voice and then slowly swells to a choir. It’s one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever hear. -- ...
