Yosemite Toad

The Yosemite toad (Anaxyrus canorus, formerly Bufo canorus) is a species of true toad in the family Bufonidae. Endemic to the Sierra Nevada of California, the species ranges from the Alpine County to Fresno County. They are the most sexually dichromatic anuran in North America, with males and females displaying strikingly divergent patterns and coloration at maturity. Adult toads are long-lived with upper age limit at least 15 years, likely an adaptation to their seasonal, high-elevation environment.

So I kinda wrote a Let it Go parody that comments on the recent rise in activity in the various Nerd Corps fandoms...

The screen glows bright in my bedroom tonight
Shows that no-one’s ever seen
A fandom of isolation
And it looks like I’m the queen
I might try Tumblr, see if someone feels the same
Wait a sec, they do?
Have I gone insane?

Should I let my followers see?
My obsession that’s still consuming me?
I’ll go insane if they don’t know
I’ll let them know

Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
Entertaining cartoon shows
Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
Hardly anybody knows
I don’t care what they’re going to say
Let the show play on
The quiet never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how many people
Sit down to Slugterra
And then stay there watching Storm Hawks
Don’t forget Dragon Booster!

It’s time to see what we can do
To form a fandom and break through
Even Superwholock’s going to see
We’re free!

Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
Fly our skimmers through the sky
Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
We all want to cuddle Eli!
Here we’ll stand and here we’ll stay!
Let the shows play on…

Our Tumblr posting will unite us all in kind
Fanart and fanfiction will let our artistry unwind
Why is it nobody else seems to know these shows?
They kick all kinds of ass! Let’s make sure they all know!

Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
So we’ll rise like the break of dawn
Nerd Corps, Nerd Corps
Our silent voices are gone
Here we’ll stand in the light of day!
Let the shows play on
The quiet never bothered us anyway

Time for the annual Flynn and Provenza comedy adventure and this time Captain Baird aka Dick Tracy is back. And another fun episode that’s sprinkled with a ton of references to classic television and film noirs.

I get that they just went to breakfast but seriously Provenza. Picking your teeth in the car. "Captain Baird gives us orders we follow them. Even if we can’t remember who he is at the moment.“ I love how Rusty is the voice of reason here. Both Provenza and Andy just go along with mysterious Captain Baird’s orders.

In a frozen meadow in Aosta Valley, Italy, a pair of red foxes stand up, face off, and bare their teeth - a vulpine way of greeting both friend and foe. ‘Fox-trots’ behaviour, like this one, become more common during the mating season.

Planets; Pt 3

Hurtling through space
Like i did before
Nothing to be seen
No star, no planet, 
nothing but the uncharted unknown

The sea has frozen over
The lush meadows and trees
Have crumbled to dust
And the sun shines no more

No twinkling in the sky
leads my way
Lost in the pitch black
Far away from any soul

Maybe some of us 
Deserve to be lost
And never be found
The poets
And artists
And misfits
Those who challenge
Our view
Of our little worlds

Maybe that is why
I am damned
Cursed to be lonely
An unspoken outcast
One of few

My world grows colder
The fingers turn blue
Maybe there is nothing left
Nothing left to do
But to wait

Wait for eternity to end

Looking for a home! Available here

I was out last night on a clear, star studded evening, crunching softly over frosty filigree covering the meadow. I had heard a call by the waterfall and had gone to investigate. It was a Silver kirin, and I was busy trying to tempt it over when I happened to look around to see a wonderful sight.

Slowly, over the drynach mountains behind me, the moon crept out from behind some silvery clouds. Within a cloudy breath the frozen meadow was filled with magical moonlight and I truly believed I was in another world. Completely silently I saw a white glow treading softly across the horizon, golden hooves placing themselves delicately in the frost.

It was a white and gold Frost Kirin. The rarest you can find.

I held my breath and my heart thudded as this beautiful creature walked in front of me. The Silver kirin by the waterfall called again, and the Gold kirin turned it’s head, then started to walk my way!

I managed to catch both the Silver and Gold kirins by tempting them with some fresh summer meadow hay and have tamed them down. I’m now offering them to you as an extremely rare and special offer for your home. Kirins make excellent pets, and although Frost kirins bring a slight chill to the air they are exceedingly beautiful.

Anna:”KRIIIIIIISTOOOOOFF!!!”

Kristoff & Anna:”HIGHFIVE!”

I had some fun with my telephoto lens in the spring sun. I’m still working on the Titanic flying sequence because I really need a good sunset. I’m not satisfeid with the last shot.
