Vario-Elmar R 105-280.  It was hard to get these shots as it was raining tropical style at 30ºC so the sensor kept misting up. Horror for sensor cleaning sceptics: I had to keep wiping it with tissues... (and, I must confess, the tail of my T-shirt :( )

Prairie Dock in our backyard tall grass prairie. TL 35mm 1.4

Morphology of the plant[edit]

The typical height of S. perfoliatum plant ranges from 1–2.5 m (3–8 ft). The stem is stout, smooth, slightly hairy (glabrous) strongly 4-angled square, like mint plants.[7] The leaves are opposite, toothed and ovate.[11] The petioles are widely winged and fused around the stem, forming a cup. The first flower develops on the tip of the main stem, then more flowers develop on side branches.[6]

I knew these were seen and captured by Louis before I saw his name.  Iconic and delightful.

These are superb, and so full of menace.

The Sun has finally decided to come up at a reasonable hour ..  Now, with my usual 5 AM wake up,  I get to see it rise.

  I feel blessed to live in Maine!

Modest, but just what we had been looking for eight years ago. Our goal was to find what we termed as a Swedish Box. All on one floor and first class construction. The home was built in 1986, and two older women have lived here before us.  Just perfect for a couple of mid-septuagenarians. Got Lucky.

Not much menace - they are harmless to humans.

A great set, though; and your pain was paid off. These are my less favorite animals, but you made them look really good! :)

Thank you for your kind words but I wonder what makes you negative about these charismatic animals

Maybe I sounded too negative, indeed, but that wasn’t my intention!. I love documentaries on  wild life and animals in  wilderness. Although it is always great to see them in freedom, I haven't always found wild dogs and hyenas very attractive! These dogs also  have a great sense of  working together and strategy for hunting. Unfortunately, their natural environment is getting smaller day by day!
