black leopard

Just in via Karl Shuker…

“Fifty shades of black …” – here is a leopard with a rare form of incomplete melanisnm at Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve.

Incredible Tadoba

August 8

Tired from handling the camera all day for all the safaris, here I was on my last one and in the last hours. All drained from the shuttering of the cameras, capturing the stripped killer in the scorching heat. Moving on to the spot for something I was sure we won’t see. With the sun being gone hours beyond our heads, the wait was on, hoping for atleast a quick glance. Eyes running through every movement in the woods and ears all fixed on the barks of the deers. Couple of hours passed and I am still hoping for a miracle before the dream run ends. And suddenly it all went quiet with all the deer heads focusing in the woods like they were guides. And there he was, an unnoticeable black figure moving uninterested in his prey. I rooted for the camera and positioned quickly on that spot, my mind and body all fired up forgetting . The melanistic leopard was there, just strolling unaware of his beauty. I zoomed at him and saw the bright eyes staring back with fading rossetes into blackness on his body. A sighting less than half an hour made the best moment of the safaris.

Goodness how exciting it must be…

Mean Mary – Thunder Song

Mean Mary
Oct 29, 2019

THUNDER SONG
by Mary James and Jean James

I wandered far from hurt but found no place to go
Like a river in the desert, like a flower in the snow
I heard a sound from somewhere, unexplained, unreconciled
Not of earth, not of air, something more, something wild

Something longing, something lost, something wounded, something sad
Like a fool who paid the cost and lost all that she had
I heard the sound grow strange, and strong, so very strong
And it began to shift and change into a song

CHORUS:
Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This pain in me, this hurt will be – will be my song

I wandered far to nowhere, I left my world behind
Just so I could go where days are not unkind
But the storm tried to follow me, stronger than before
The night tried to swallow me and the wind it waged a war

Colder, colder, blows this gale, colder grows the night
But more than trails are known to fail and more than wolves can bite
More than horses break their halters, more than birds take wing
If a voice wavers or falters sometimes the heart must sing

CHORUS:
Some were made to sigh and cry but some will look up higher
Instead of always asking why they’ll set the world on fire
Sometimes we only lose to win to find where we belong
This cold, this wind, this storm has been – has been my song

Sometimes we only lose to win
To find where we belong
I had to learn to sing again
With thunder in my song

So sweet!

Mary is simply stunning.

Very interesting. Very strange. Very cool.
