2018-Week 120


February 2014 , Victoria was fairly well alight for several weeks.
While the worst fires were nowhere near us…

fouled our atmosphere for a few days

until the wind decided we had had enough 

and turned the other way.

One Word Photo Challenge-Manatee






manatee is…

a sea cow of tropical Atlantic coasts and estuaries, 

Not living anywhere near the tropics

let alone tropical Atlantic coastline,

I thought this one would had stumped me for posting.

However, a little more research and I discovered

that I had plenty of photos of one of

the Manatee’s nearest living relatives.

Yep!   The closest living relatives to a mantee are

the Proboscidea (elephants) and

Hyracoidea (hyraxes).

This little relative of the manatee was telling us

where to go and how quickly to get there

in no uncertain manner.

I don’t have a photo of a hyrax.
