(He certainly isn't at a loss for some good winter body fat!)

November 8, 2012: New bridge, Annapurna sanctuary trek, Nepal. During the trek I've learned that one thing is more special and amazing than the beautiful snowy mountains, the green fields, and the clear air: the people on the way that live their lives.

March 21, 2012: Shot from the window of my bedroom, two floors up as the sun was coming up very early in the morning. My first view of a wild fox, and he was stunning. Was so quiet but he responded to the noise of the camera and glanced up.
(I agree with the photographer that this pic is stunning! Not often do we get to look a fox right in the eyes like this.)

July 30, 2012: My daughter petting a beluga whale at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The animal kept coming to her and playfully maneuvered on the other side of the thick glass window, enjoying the visit of its guest.
(These two certainly have their own special communication!)

July 25, 2012: This 6.5 year-old sow had been waiting for the salmon to run up the Brooks River for two days. She kept probing the water and sniffing the air, expecting the fish to arrive any day. On the morning of this shot, the salmon started running up the Brooks River and up the famed Brooks Falls. The sow assumed this unusual posture over the rock and observed the fish below. When the opportunity presented itself, the bear pounced and caught the first fish of the season.
This was sent to me and others from friend Dianne C. It is not listed under National Geographic but it should be.
On behalf of Orangutan Outreach. A moment captured between an orphaned orangutan and a forest school instructor/caretaker. Over 600 orphaned and displaced orangutans are staying at the sanctuary. Many brought in via confiscation through the illegal pet trade or via palm oil plantations that continue to rob these great creatures of their forest. Orangutan Outreach and Nyaru Menteng work together to help conserve this species and educate the world about the critical plight of this great ape species. We call this photo "The Standoff."
You're welcome sis! I thought it such a beautiful picture with that fuzzy little baby that seems to wander around with her. From the background it looks like such a beautiful place to live. It must be a lot of work making the scarves but I bet they are gorgeous and I would certainly buy one.
What a beautiful little girl with a cute little alpaca. I wouldn't be surprised if her mothr made that beautiful outfit. I too, hopes she continues with her schooling. Thanks for the lovely story, Cheryl.

April 13, 2012: Francisca, six years old, in Chivay, Peru. Everyday, with her mother, she sells scarves and local products. But Francisca, with her baby alpaca, demands a tip, in general one sol, or 35 cents U.S. She said to me with a little voice, "I’m going once a week to school. The rest of the week I help my mother make scarves and sweaters, and I try to sell these with my charm and with Pablito, my baby alpaca."
(I'm glad she asks for the tip and I hope she keeps on with her schooling. Her clothing is so beautiful!)
Isn't he beautiful?!!

July 18, 2012: After going through 2 days of game, we were rather disappointed of not spotting any wild animal in Kabini forests in Karnataka, India. It was Prem who was driving our vehicle spotted this magnificent Leopard, who was lazing after feasting on a spotted deer. When the animal moved to change positions I shot this frame.
Glad you like them Mary. I love the way the wild and free stallion takes care of his lady!
OH Cheryl what beautiful pictures. Beautiful horses and an adorable bird. His eyes are gorgeous! Yes I wonder what he is thinking.

June 8, 2012: Taken in the Shackleford Banks area of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the wild horses are free to roam among the tidal islands that comprise Shackleford Banks. This stallion swam over to his mare to guide her away from us as we watched from close by in the water.
