Man Does Not Live by Bread Alone

There are also carrots. This plump muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) was begging for snacks at a riverside cafe along the Vltava, near the center of Prague. I hope he's watching his triglycerides!

Tomorrow, October 4, is World Animal Day #WorldAnimalDay . I've been photographing wildlife all over the world for decades, always some of my favorite travels and subjects! Here's a quick summary of my wildlife photo collections on G+:

This collection, The Wild in Wildlife at https://plus.google.com/collection/Q4meDB is now the main active collection for all current wildlife images.

Wild Brazil at https://plus.google.com/collection/URScAB is an archive of mostly wildlife photos from the Brazilian Amazon and Pantanal. I am no longer adding new images to that collection.

Lemurs of Madagascar at https://plus.google.com/collection/QV-wR is a special archive of lemur photos from the wild, including some extremely rare and beautiful species. I am no longer adding new images to that collection.

My Antarctica collection at https://plus.google.com/collection/I_-BX contains many photos of the adorable penguins, plus seals, whales and other wildlife, along with the magnificent ice and landscapes of the seventh continent. While I haven't added many images recently, I may again post to that collection in the future.

Feathered Friend

Just above Moraine Lake, in Banff National Park, we discovered this beautiful Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus). This is its summer plumage; a couple of months later, it will be completely white for winter.

River Abstract, with Muskrat

We were down by the Vltava River, in the heart of Prague, and delighted to discover a family of muskrats (Ondatra zibethicus) playing in and around the water.

Poise

A graceful Verreaux's sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi) dances her way across the red dirt of Madagascar. Photographed in the Berenty Reserve; pretty much all of the lemurs are considered endangered due to habitat loss, though there are a few spots like this one where they are reasonably well protected locally.
