Indeed, a baby something, judging by the careful way it's held. I'm going to guess platypus because of the protuberance which doesn't seem to be a bird beak. If so, presumably in Australia.

Re: Udawalawe National Park, Sri Lanka

Fantastic bird photography Professor and those crocodiles look like they aren't missing any meals lately. If I compute correctly, 1000 rupees is equivalent to $6.43 or 4.66 British pounds. Seems the Sri Lanka currency has weakened quite a bit since 2014, so maybe a good time to get a value vacation there.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, June 4th, 2014: Humming Birds

DrFumblefinger ·
I enjoy these birds, although like guys speeding by on motorcycles (affectionately called "organ donors" in Germany) they seem to live on the edge. Life in Fast-Forward x12! One year we discovered a hummingbird nest in one of our bushes. Its eggs were amazingly tiny! The entire nest wasn't much bigger than my thumbnail (wish I'd taken photos of it) And PHeymont, we need to get you out of the city more. I know NYC is famous for its big cockroaches, but if you can't tell a bird from an insect,...

And I'm partial to the 55 Bel Air. Probably the subdued black and white, not the peacockish "Jamaican Bay" color.

Paul, you're beginning to sound like Ben Franklin who wanted the turkey to be the USA's national bird, not the bald eagle. If he'd seen these photos, I'm sure old Ben would have been advocating for the chickens.

Hi Garry RF You are correct in assuming there are more cars. Actually, my next "Cruise Night" blog will be published tomorrow (Tuesday, August 12/14) featuring five cars from the 1930's. That blog will be followed in a few days or weeks with another "Cruise Night" blog featuring cars from the 1940's and 1950's, which will be followed in another few days or weeks with another "Cruise Night" blog or two featuring cars from the 1960's, which will be followed in another few days or weeks with...

How did I miss the pickled dodo bird when I went in 2012? One of the most beautiful libraries in the world. Great photos. Thanks for posting.

Re: Strahov Monastery, Prague. Where Gumbo Was #57

DrFumblefinger ·
The dodo bird is sitting in a glass jar in the hallway outside this great library. It's a long hallway, but it's there. I'm thinking with a little recombinant DNA technology, we should be able to pull some cells from that dodo bird and bring it back to life? (Would work if it's in formalin, but not if its in alcohol). But maybe it's best to leave well enough alone.

Thanks for the compliment GarryRF. Please feel free to come back and enjoy these photos as often as you'd like. I too have viewed them many times, and if I haven't worn them out by now, I don't think you have to worry. Stay tuned for my next blog...Cruise Night, the 1940's and 1950's (to be published Tuesday August 19/14), which will feature five cars from these two decades. I hope you will enjoy them. I gotta run. I have some "bits and bobs" that need tending to (LOL).

Re: Where Gumbo Was #11: The Arena of Arles and the World of Rome

PortMoresby ·
The remains of Rome are great to see, it cannot be denied, but it's those lovely little bridges that will be the target when I go to Arles. And I will, no doubt. The village within the walls reminds me of the "anfiteatro" in Lucca Italy. It was filled by houses until the 19th century when it was cleared, leaving the ring of buildings on the perimeter and creating the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro. I had the good fortune of renting a large apartment in the perimeter ring of buildings, overlooking...

Re: Where Gumbo Was #11: The Arena of Arles and the World of Rome

When you get to Arles, you may want to look at another bridge, this one crossing the Rhone. The clip below is from this website , which also has several other side-by-side comparisons of his paintings and today. The bridge here is modified or replaced, but the steps and the walk along the Rhone have not. And here's another image from my visit, looking down the Canal d'Arles from near the Langlois Bridge (the official name of the "Van Gogh Bridge.")

In the UK at twilight we get Starlings gathering for a dance just as the sun has set. 60 - 100 thousand gather to perform a spectacular formation dance in many locations. Then just as quick they'll dive back into the country side for another day. Usually lasts about 10 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1Q-EbX6dso
