Species Victoria amazonica is the largest plant of the family Nymphaeaceae. Impressive size is given by its large leaves that reach up to 3 m in diameter. These circular, colored in bright green on the upper face and knock towards purple on the underside and the edges they are 5-6 cm high, like a tray of pies, which he attached to the plant called "yrupe" - which Native American language meaning "water dish". Natives 1 May called the "Apon" - "skillet birds" because in its leaves, circular, sometimes tightens water, attracting birds that use the leaves as bathing.

Amazon lotus flowers are white the first night after they open and become pink roses since the second night. It has a diameter of about 40 cm. And are pollinated by beetles.

Legend has it that in ancient times, on the banks of the majestic Amazon River, a young and very beautiful woman belonging to an Indian tribe walks singing and dreaming of a better life. For several hours on end she admired the beauty of the moon, the stars and pondered the mysteries imagined it would become one of them. The fragrance of tropical night, the light of increasingly intense the stars and their reflection in water Naia urged her beautiful legendary, to climb into a tree to reach the moon. Failed. The next day, accompanied by his friend, a repeated attempt, climbing on the highest mound. When they reached the top they realized that the moon is so far away from them, that the tribe returned disappointed and sad. The next night, Naia left the tribe, decided to follow his dream. Full moon reflected in the waters of the Amazon, to spell it. Naia was thrown into the water, thinking thereby attainable and disappeared forever.

Tags: bird   southamerica   flying   inflight   amazon   columbia   kingfisher   cartagena   amazonkingfisher   code5   vision:outdoor=0771   vision:sky=08   
I was very fortunate to have finally found and captured this AMAZON KINGFISHER in Columbia a couple of weeks ago...I have seen a couple of fly-bys in El Salvador and Costa Rica before.

He looks like a Green Kingfisher except he is almost a foot (30cm) long with an oversized bill. (Green Kingfisher is more like a sparrow). Just like most Kingfishers, he is also very shy and would take off at the first sight of human.
.
In order to capture him, I wore full camo gears and I waited for him near (but not too close) to his favorite fishing perch; and I remain totally still for whatever time that was required, usually within half an hour. He will eventually come back to his perch and sometime even defends it against other kingfishers and smaller birds. But if you spook him, he might not come back for a few days cause he has many fishing holes just like human do. LOL
..

This species has only been added on the American checklist since Nov.2010:


....."Added: Amazon Kingfisher (Chloroceryle amazona)
Code: 5.
Placement: after Belted Kingfisher.
Comments: One female along the Rio Grande at Laredo, Webb County, Texas, from 24 January to 3 February 2010. Although the bird was stated in the documentation submitted to the TBRC to be an adult, we are not aware of the characters that were used to age the bird. Discovered and photographed by Robert Epstein and Alan Wormington, and observed by hundreds during its stay (Wormington and Epstein 2010)......ABA COMMITTEE.

The Yellow-crowned Amazon (Amazona ochrocephala), is a species of parrot, native to the tropical South America and Panama.

The Yellow-headed Parrot is found in the Amazon Basin and Guianas, with additional populations in north-western South America and Panama. It is a bird of tropical forest (both humid and dry), woodland, mangroves, savanna and may also be found on cultivated land and suburban areas. In the southern part of its range, it is rarely found far from the Amazon Rainforest. It is mainly a lowland bird, but has locally been recorded up to 800 m (2600 ft) along on the eastern slopes of the Andes.

They are normally found in pairs or small flocks up to 30, but larger groups may gather at clay licks. Their food includes fruits, nuts, seeds and berries. Foods with sugar and a large amount of salt can be dangerous for them.

A bacia do rio Amazonas envolve todo o conjunto de recursos hídricos que convergem para o rio Amazonas. Essa bacia hidrográfica faz parte da região hidrográfica do Amazonas, uma das doze regiões hidrográficas do território brasileiro.
A bacia amazônica abrange uma área de 7 milhões de km², compreendendo terras de vários países da América do Sul (Peru, Colômbia, Equador, Venezuela, Guiana, Bolívia e Brasil). É a maior bacia fluvial do mundo.
De sua área total, cerca de 3,8 milhões de km² encontram-se no Brasil, abrangendo os estados do Acre, Amazonas, Roraima.

Marajó

Situada no Pará, entre a foz do rio Amazonas e a do Tocantins, Marajó, com 48 000 km², é a maior ilha marítimo - fluvial do mundo. Ao sul da ilha fica o rio Pará, que desemboca no Tocantins e é alcançado por grande braços ("furos") do rio Amazonas. Na parte oeste, esses "furos" formam uma infinidade de ilhas menores, A principal cidade de Marajó é Soure, que fica a seis horas de barco do porto de Belém e é procurada por turistas que querem conhecer a ilha e tomar banho nas magníficas praias fluviais das vizinhanças, como a do Pesqueiro. A ilha é recoberta por vegetação baixa, e grande parte de seu território é constituída por várzeas inundadas por rios, lagos e igarapés (pequenos braços de rio). Os rios e os lagos fornecem cerca de 1 500 espécies de peixes - como o pirarucu (o "bacalhau do norte", que chega a medir 2,5 m e pesar 80 kg), o tambaqui, o tucunaré e o curimatã - que, além de serem consumidos pela população marajoara, são exportados para o resto do Pará e para outros Estados. Nos rios há também jacarés, e nas matas vivem espécies de animais, como onças, capivaras e antas. No céu da ilha, as revoadas de incontáveis pássaros embelezam a paisagem.


The Amazon Basin is the part of South America drained by the Amazon River and its tributaries that drains an area of about 6,915,000 square kilometres (2,670,000 sq mi), or roughly 40 percent of South America. The basin is located in the countries of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, and Venezuela [1]. The Amazon rain forest is the largest in the world, covering about 8,235,430 km2 (3,179,720 sq mi) with dense tropical forest,

Parrot – I know that but if it is Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot – not 100% sure – looks like one . I looked up some information about them … and they are one of the most popular – my kind of a bird .
We found them in Guatemala on the way back from Tikal close to the lake Peten Itza in El Remate.
I always made fun of avian photographers and not to worry – I'm not going to turn into one anytime soon :-). Still it was fun.

The relentless climb out of the BR exchange sidings at Lowca is exemplified by this show of 'Austerity' power as 0-6-0 saddle tank 'Amazon' (Vulcan Foundry works No.5297 built in 1945) gets its the four loaded 21-ton hoppers on the move up towards the National Coal Board Harrington Coal Preparation Plant, Lowca, Cumbria on 12th March 1973. Even my wife-to-be couldn't help but be impressed with this spectacle, the noise of the sharp exhaust echoing from across the valley from Howgate and beyond.

Gussied up in a 60’s era lowrider panels paint job in yellow and several shades of green, this truck is sure to be the darling of any hot rod show. The cylinder looking thing out the passenger window is an oldschool air conditioning unit. Just add ice!

We each have to use the light grey Scala 5x5 dish so this build uses four...crammed neatly into the tire rims and inlaid with green gems. Hope you like it, Rod!

During our excursion into the Amazon jungle, we encountered a few indigenous kids who were as curious about us as we were of them. This shy little girl was maybe 5 yrs old. She is holding her pet, a 3 toed sloth, which she said she captured by herself. At 40C one needs no shirts: the shorts were for the benefit of the tourists. Her earrings are pure Emerald, about 4 carats each, which her mother found in the jungle. The jungle canopy creates dark shade, and I did not have fast film with me. The images are slightly blurred by camera shake. Very sadly, her environment and civilisation are now almost gone (but that story is for a different set).

I think I have a weird relationship with my stash. I often want to use up a whole lot of it -- not to make room for more, but just to "free up space" or something. When I'm done the project, I'm often a little disappointed that I still have fabric left over. But the truth is, I know I'd be sad if I used up all of a print I really liked and had no more left. Isn't that absolutely bonkers? (And ha, this must be the closest to a diary entry I've written in years!)

Okay, so Dylan got an Amazon Kindle and wants some sort of sleeve/cozy for it. He wanted this artisan leather cover from Restoration Hardware, but we didn't realize that it was a web-only item 'til we got to the store and couldn't find it. I'm not sure if it was the web-only factor or the $70 price tag that caused him to sheepishly ask me to make one for him, but I don't mind being the runner-up:)

He then mused about Liberty fabric, my patchwork wallet, and a patchwork lunch bag I made for him (both basically composed of tiny scrap rectangles sewn together). By the time we got in the car, I basically knew I was going to use Liberty and Lecien Memoire a Paris scraps to make these HSTs.

Along the way, I thought about a couple of other projects I've really admired over the years: Karyn's patchwork skateboard, Celine's quilt, and Alexia's two amazing doll quilts for Amy. The lining is a vintage Liberty print I received in a swap with Kaye (thanks!).

Oh, and while I did get to bust some scraps, I really should remember that this finished size is only 6.25 x 9" on both sides:)

Amazon Poison Dartfrog or Reticulated Poison Frog (Ranitomeya ventrimaculata, formerly Dendrobates ventrimaculata, originally Dendrobates minutus ventrimaculata), Bauchflecken-Baumsteiger, Explornapo Canopy Walkway, Rio Napo rainforest area, Loreto, Peru

Very complicated and sometimes conflicting taxonomy of this very little beauty (15-20 mm!!!). They were found at the inflows of the Amazon River in Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Brasil and another occurence would be in French Guyana.

They are one of the species that live not on the ground of the rainforest but high up in the trees. In this case it was about 30 m above the ground. Usually and most of the time they live in and around a bromeliad.

Unfortunately poor quality shot. However, I took this with my big lense (400 mm) and hand-held. There was no time to fumble around with a tripod, the frogs were running quickly up the tree. That's best I could manage with PS.

Please, look through the whole comment section, there are some other images...

Interesting facts:
Let's talk about the reproduction and developement of the little dartfrogs in the rainforest. The adult frogs will check if the bromelia is already occupied by another tadpole, own one or different ones. Usually there is not enough food for more than one tadpole in this miniature pond within the bromelia. It will feed the little algae from the walls of the funnel. So the parents will put their eggs in different tank bromeliads to ensure there will be enough food for one. Astonishingly, if there is already a tadpole in the bromeliad, this tadpole can "alert" the frog: Already occupied. The developement will last quite a longtime under these "unfavorable" conditions. Remember: There are no other nutrition nor minerales in this environment. From time to time, the female may lay some other eggs in the funnel to feed the tadpole with its "own" eggs. These very intensive and resource consuming parental care under difficult conditions will succeed in survival of the individuum. But a few questions arise: Why is it specially in the neotropics around the Amazon River often the case that many of these species will avoid the water for breeding. I will focus on these question later in other posts.

Another interesting story is diversity and variability versus frequency of these species. Let's make some comparison with the amphibians in Central Europe. In the eastern Peruvian rainforest scientists had found about 40 different species per 1 qkm. In Europe there were about 12 different species found on 1 million (!) qkm, meaning about 10% of the species amount in the rainforest of Peru. But the weight of one Marsh Frog (Pelophylax ridibundus), which is the largest frog in Central Europe, is about 100 times the weight of a little dartfrog. So compared to the rainforest wildlife around a garden or forest pond is much more abundant than the wildlife in the rainforest. However, there is only 1 or 3 different species around where as in the rainforest you will find on the same area up to 20 to 30 different species. But you will never see such an extremely mass of frogs and toads in the rainforest as you may see in the outer tropic regions. Enemy pressure and food resources are all the time key issues for survival of a species. In the outer tropics nature will do this by masses of spawn in the rainforest it is a sophisticated and intense parental care. Nature will not have any other choice: There are unfavorable conditions and low availabilty of food resources in the rainforest.

One of the two Mealy Amazon Parrots perched in the walk-through-aviary at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, Dalton In Furness, Cumbria.

The Mealy Amazon (Amazona farinosa) is among the largest of the Amazon parrots. It is mainly green with a total length of 38–41 cm (15–16 in). It is endemic to tropical Central and South America. It frequents humid to semi-humid forest and plantations.
The Mealy Amazon is social and can be found in pairs or in large flocks. They are even known to interact with other parrots, such as macaws.

Their diet is mostly fruits, seeds, berries, nuts, blossoms, and leaf buds. It is fairly common in most of its range, but has declined locally due to habitat loss and trapping for wild parrot trade. Trafficking of the birds (as for exotic pets) is illegal in many nations, but the species are still smuggled into the United States from Mexico. In some areas Mealy Amazons are hunted as food. They sometimes feed on human crops (especially corn) and may be considered a crop pest.

During the rainy season, the level of the river Amazon and its tributaries rises up to an amazing 15 meters. As a result, the florest floor is flooded resulting in what the natives know as "igapos", flooded forests. It is one of the most beautiful and magic landscapes you can find in the region. In the photo above there are approximately 4 meters of water below the surface.

Iquitos is the largest city in the Peruvian rainforest, with a population of 370,962. It is generally considered the most populous city in the world that cannot be reached by road.
Located on the Amazon River, it is a mere 106 m above sea level even though it is more than 3,000 km from the mouth of the Amazon at Belém in Brazil, on the Atlantic Ocean. Iquitos has long been a major port in the Amazon Basin. It is surrounded by three rivers: the Nanay, the Itaya, and the Amazon.
The city can be reached only by airplane or boat, with the exception of a road to Nauta, a small town roughly 100 km (62 mi) south.

The climate is hot and humid, with an average relative humidity of 85%. The wet season lasts from around November to May, with the river reaching its highest point in May. The river is at its lowest in October.

A boat tour of Belén is a common tourist attraction. Belén is an area east of Iquitos that can be accessed by foot and moto-carro both in the dry and wet seasons. However, many of the homes in this area are tethered to large poles and float upon the rising waters every year, and some homes float year-round. Where the waters begin there are often a few men with their boats who transport locals and tourists for a small fee.

Die Venezuela-Amazone
(Amazona amazonica) ist die mit Abstand häufigste Art aus der Gattung der Amazonenpapageien (Amazona). Sie kommt in einem 7,4 Mio. km² großen Gebiet im nördlichen und zentralen Südamerika vor. Schätzungsweise leben dort noch rund 10 Mio. Exemplare.
-
In der Heimtierhaltung ist die Venezuela-Amazone verhältnismäßig beliebt, sie gehört zu den am häufigsten gehaltenen Amazonenarten. Sie gelten als robuste Pfegelinge, die schnell zutraulich gegenüber ihrem Pfleger werden. Die Zucht der Venezuela-Amazone gelingt mittlerweile regelmäßig.
Sie liebt Geselligkeit und sucht sich einen alpha Partner unter den Menschen aus!
Und laut kreischen - über 100 db - kann sie sein, diese Amazone !



The Orange-winged Amazon
(Amazona amazonica), also known locally as Orange-winged Parrot and Loro Guaro,
is a large Amazon parrot.
It is a resident breeding bird in tropical South America, from Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago south to Peru and central Brazil. Its habitat is forest and semi-open country. Although common, it is persecuted as an agricultural pest and by capture for the pet trade (over 66,000 captured in the years 1981-1985). It is also hunted as a food source.
The Orange-winged Amazon is a very affectionate and popular pet with a fairly good talking ability!
Known for being quite friendly, they are easy to tame and quite clever. They make a wonderful companion and will quickly form a strong bond with their owner, they can however be rather noisy. Mature birds are about 12 1/2 inches (31 cm) long from the head to the tip of the tail.
Amazons enjoy human interaction as well as interaction with other birds. In the wild they are very social birds living in groups. They are seen in flocks, from small groups to groups of more than six hundred birds. They also form permanent pairs when they are sexually mature.


The Orange-winged Amazon is a robust and hardy bird that can do well indoors or outdoors. As is true with all Amazons, they are very social and enjoy the company of people as well as other birds.


~~~~~
As a pet, the Venezuela-Amazone relatively popular, it is among the most widely held Amazon species. They are regarded as robust animals, which quickly trusting to their carers are. The breeding of the Venezuela-Amazone succeed now regularly.

(Thanks so much once again! esp when i do not have any new photos to share with everyone :) | Thanks to Lynnie too for the explore link :D)


I would say this is more of a recent shot .. perhaps about 1 month ago :D for once i managed to wake up fairly early for this! Another angle of the glasshouse with a symmetrical view this time. The thing i find about glasshouse is that it can look really complicating cos u get to see everything in & out.. almost drive me nuts & dizzy. Hope you don't freak out & faint in front of your desk now LOL! Wish you all a non-complicating start to the weekend!

Thank you so much for your time for popping by with your views, comments or faves! Always appreciate them!

X Thanks for your patience and interest in my set of Amazon shots, I apologise there were rather a lot. The first shot I posted was of these kids in their boat so it seems appropriate to end with them saying goodbye. Seeing those kids, being in the Amazon still seems like a dream. I feel lucky and very privileged to have spent a little time there. I hope the photos give a small sense of the wonder of the area and why we need to preserve it

I have taken this subject twice before. The first time was when i just gotten my xti in April this year ;) & the second one was just 2 weeks ago. I've always like this first shot (see below) however it seems that there is a top but no bottom haha! a bit incomplete! That's why i returned to capture a full shot with my wide angle this time. The obvious difference between the 2 was that the 1st was shot in summer (steel blue sky) & 2nd in winter (clouds!) i believe that's the first thing u will notice straight away ;)

Nonetheless, i'm hoping the latest one doesn't look worse than the 1st one else i will be so heart broken LOL! Just be gentle with me pls :P

... Victoria amazonica is the largest of the Nymphaeaceae family of water lilies... the species has very large leaves, up to 3m in diameter, that float on the water's surface ... the flowers, upto 40cm in diameter, are white the first night they are open and become pink the second night ... they are pollinated by beetles.
photographed at the Amazon Waterlily Pavillion, Adelaide Botanic Garden, South Australia.
footnote: the flower was white when photographed ... a tint was added in post editing.

Comments are fascinating related to this device, though in my opinion the interesting story here is the direction the functionality is taking. That is something to note and watch carefully. Amazons stake in the content/functionality ground is also likely significant.

Those nice people, are members of an Amazon Indian tribe - Yagua
As our guide said - They asked a nearby lodge for a land in which they live together - as a tribe, speak their own language, and preserve their traditions - craft, music, clothes and so on, if asked they preformed happily for the tourists in those traditional outfits- as a way to make little money and to share their old way of living.
Here they are teaching us how to use a blowgun.
This image is a tribute to them - to their joy of life, and to old traditons.

Seen in Madidi National Park, in the Bolivian Amazon.

This was one of the most thrilling moments of our trip- we saw this jaguarundi swimming and then running through the shallows of the Tuichi River. At first our guides thought that it was a wet Ocelot but once it got out of the water we were able to more accurately identify it. It was a very brief sighting- the animal sprinted straight into the jungle and I only got this one shot, but it was an incredibly thrilling sighting.

Jaguarundi exist all through the Americas (as far north as the American Southwest), but are very rare and difficult to see in this part of the Amazon. It was the first time anyone on the boat (including the four guides who have lived their whole lives in the Bolivian Amazon) had ever seen one of these in the wild.

The Giant Amazon Water Lily, Victoria amazonica (Nymphaeaceae), is found growing naturally in the region of central Brazil in the forest tributaries of the Amazon River. One leaf is up to 3 m (9.8 ft) in diameter, on it stalk 7–8 m (22.9-26.2 ft) in length. "The leaf of Victoria is able to support quite a large weight due to the plant's structure, although the leaf itself is quite delicate: so much so that a straw held 6 inches above and dropped perpendicularly upon it would readily pass through it. To counter the fragile nature of the leaf, the weight needs to be distributed across the surface through mechanical means, such as a sheet of plywood. This allows the leaf to support up to 70 pounds. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_(waterlily)

This young Shuar man, who lives by himself in this house on a hilltop overlooking a scenic vista of the Amazon Basin, honored us by inviting us in for some music. Living with few material possessions, he sleeps with a spear by his bed and says that he is so comfortable in his surroundings that if an animal enters his home at night, he can slip into the jungle, never to be found. His uncle, who lives in a tiny village below, checks in on him from time to time.

He left home as a youth to learn about the other cultures in the region, and told us he speaks four languages (the native tongues of the indigenous people of his area, as well as Spanish). Sadly, many of the indigenous cultures of the Amazon rain forests are being eradicated -- along with the traditions, medicines, and ways of life that have sustained them for over 3000 years -- by oil companies, commercial farming, and other large corporations who seek to exploit the plentiful natural resources of the area for financial gain.

While there is no way of knowing the impact on future generations of what we have already done, it is not too late to save what is left of our natural wonders. There is still hope if we are able to learn from our mistakes....

Although not technically "wild," this flower, which unfortunately I cannot identify at the moment, was found in a magnificent botanical garden on the edge of an Amazon rain forest in Ecuador.

An extremely insightful Shuar woman (the Shuar are one of several indigenous cultures in the region), fearing the loss of the medicinal and other plants used by her people for the past 3000 years, purchased 75 acres of land on which she and her US-born biologist husband have created this oasis of indigenous species.

The nameplate from Amazon was originally fitted to one of the Haydock Foundry built well tanks. It was totally different to all the other nameplates in it's lettering style. This 'Amazon' was also a Haydock system loco for much of its working life.
