Ive posted this in TV, but I’d hate for any nature lovers to miss this wonderful documentary on Netflix.

Well, that was a hoot! Seriously.

The way that owl behaved so passively when they were treating its foot injury makes me think it was aware that the man was helping it. That man sure was lucky though that the owl didn't suddenly swivel its head around and bite him in the hand/arm.

A racoon has moved to the neighborhood. We've had a couple of close encounters. It's fat and healthy, so that's a plus. It's not going to attack me, but making eye contact with it three feet away at 5 AM took my by surprise.

This is me feeding pigeons.

I put the camera down and put food right in front of it so I could get a closeup of the pigeons eating.

Tell me what you all think?

Default Wolves in Upstate NY and Maine?

Officially, NY state and Maine don't have wolves. But, wolves have been shot there on rare occasions in recent decades, and certainly, there is no shortage of wolves in Canada. "Some canine researchers say it’s not clear if there are sustained populations in the Northeast, but it appears likely wolves are wandering into the region."

https://www.wmtw.com/article/wolves-...maine/41000099

I have seen a wolf myself in Maine, 21 years ago, driving back from Acadia to mid-coast Maine at dusk - this XL canine ran through my headlights as I came around a corner with dark woods on both sides. This thing didn't move like any dog I have ever seen, not even close. In general appearance, it was kind of like a grey German Shepherd, but I had one at the time - in the car, and this was not any kind of German Shepherd - it was taller, with longer legs, also slimmer proportioned for its great size, and the way it moved - it ran quickly all the way from the woods on one side of the road to the woods on the other side (>= 80 feet) in just a few huge leaps - no dog can do that.

I don't think the authorities really want there to be wolves in either state, and so they dampen any wolf talk... and I am not saying they are common, but I have zero doubt that they are there - having seen one with my own eyes.

What bored out of their mind two men created during Covid lockdown? - they created Color Gradient Collection of Dung Beetles!

A Japanese man spent a whole month catching dung beetles and creating a mesmerizing color gradient collection.
Bored out of his mind, the man started hunting dung beetles and then arranging them neatly in this gradient style for a stunning visual effect. Bochimushi’s collection consists of a whopping 450 dung beetles.

Another man, also Japanese, put his together also during the pandemic, only a year earlier, in August 2021.

Both charts are amazing!! Great use of idle time!

(I didn't know that beetles come in so many different colors).

Enjoy it here:
