Buzzard on the Lookout - Postcard from Brazil

     I came across this Black Vulture as he was perched on his lookout just at the edge of our suburb.  He didn't seem to be at all afraid of me, but this was the closest I wanted to get to take his photo.

Diane - Faces of Brazil

       We enjoyed getting to talk to Diane again at Family Camp this year.  Her sweet, quiet spirit made it a joy to be around her.

Praying Mantis - Postcard from Brazil

     This is actually a tiny baby Praying Mantis that we found here.  It's entire body was hardly half-an-inch in length and so I it was a challenge to get a macro portrait of him, but he finally looked into the camera - not sure if he's smiling or not, though!

The Jacaré

Here in the center of South America, we have plenty of Jacaré, a type of Caiman of the Crocodile family. (Wiki)  Although we don't necessarily have them here in our suburb of Cuiabá, you don't have to go far out of town to start seeing them!  They supposedly do not harm or interfere with humans, but I prefer to keep my distance just in case!
