About Me

Jack Rabbits and Skunks

Something other than politics to enjoy. Captures from my trail cameras:

Blocked... Why?

So much for freedom of speech and expressing one's opinion on DU. "Meta-discussion" or not, what a bunch of B.S. Apparently I was blocked:

"You have been blocked from posting in the Hillary Clinton group by sheshe2. If you believe this is an error, you may contact sheshe2 for more information."

I said nothing inflammatory, just my opinion. Is this what D.U. is about?

What's the Point?

Bernie's Bird

I just donated to Bernie's campaign. First time I've ever donated to a presidential candidate. He's is on-message and authentic.

Any of the GOP 'candidates' would have arrested the bird and waterboarded it in case it was an undercover Muslim bird. Or, they would have shot it and mounted its head and stuck it on their office wall.

Not really sure what Hillary would have done.

Bernie and his bird inspired me!

F#@K politics, nature rules...

I discovered paradise in a desert canyon near Tucson. A perfect spring welcome (F#@K the politics, nature rules...). Looking forward to your interpretations:

aerial documentation

What do you do when the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) has money to spend... Has to spend... Must spend on a project that will do more harm than good?

Write letters, make calls, plug your ears, rub jalapenos in your eyes...

This beautiful canyon, running with a watercourse that makes endangered species happy, is doomed under a proposed BOR project (http://www.usbr.gov/lc/phoenix/biology/azfish/odonnellcreek.html). Their proposed damming project is unnecessary and harmful!

Picture the following, but with backhoes, trackhoes, dynamite, concrete and excess fill-dirt dumped on rattlesnake dens and native wildflower communities. What you see here will be changed for the worse forever simply because they are required to spend the money allocated for this project, despite the obvious negative consequences:

Coyote Attacks Trail Camera

I check the trail cameras every 3 to 4 weeks. When I checked the Finley Tank camera at Audubon's Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch last week I saw that it had been displaced from its normal position. The video revealed why:

Coyote with Mange

Poor thing looks terrible! He must feel so miserable ...

Rocks and Clouds

I know this is a "photography" forum (Perhaps there can be an off-topic video forum?), but since this video was not done as part of my ecology surveys and was more focused on the beauty of the circumstance, I thought I'd post it here rather than in Environment & Energy:


Do you know what a Vaquita is? Did you know its the rarest of the Harbor Porpoises? Did you know that there are less than 100 individuals left? Did you know that their rarity has been caused by the damming of the Colorado River and illegal gill-net-fishing for the endangered totoaba bass?

They are endemic to the Delta region in the northern Sea of Cortez where the Colorado River (used to) empty into the Sea of Cortez.

Despite designation of a new Biosphere Reserve, Vaquita continue to be drowned in gill nets set by desperate local fishermen hoping to catch yet another endangered species, the totoaba?

Yeah, the argument over which democratic candidate matters in the short-term, but, as they say, extinction is forever.
