During my last 7 years traveling throughout the Amazon, I have found no more than a couple of Amazon Horned Frogs (Ceratophrys cornuta). Despite being a common frog, they are very hard to find for two reasons. They have great camouflage, blending perfectly with the leaf-litter, and they spend most of their life with half of their body buried in the ground, ready to ambush their prey with only their eyes and marked eyebrows showing. That's why when I saw this tiny hidden juvenile among old bark at the foot of a tree, I almost had a heart attack! Slowly, I put my tripod in front of it and I thought to photograph it, mixed in that perfect substrate while the shadows were gaining ground and the day was fading.

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.

Flickr (N.Am Species # 529) Male Amazon Kingfisher
Tags: bird   southamerica   flying   inflight   amazon   columbia   kingfisher   cartagena   amazonkingfisher   code5   
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.

The Amazon Kingfisher ranges from southern Mexico, through Central America down to northern Argentina.
It resembles the Green Kingfisher which shares its range, but it is much larger and is three to four times as heavy. It is approximately 12 inches long, the Green more typically 8 inches long.
Here is one perched on a branch just above the water, ready to plunge head first.

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.

Shot from a River boat tour on the Tarcoles river on the Pacific side. The family made a trip to Costa Rica for the holidays and I only have about 4000 shots to get through - I will be posting more from the trip - but wanted to get something going. Will be catching up!

For my first entry I’m hittin’ him with a pretty little custom 1955 Ford F-100 called Amazon Jade. 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!

Tags: amazon   minolta   
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).

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.

Portuguese
Teatro Amazonas é um teatro brasileiro localizado no largo de São Sebastião, no centro de Manaus, capital do Amazonas. O teatro, inaugurado em 1896, é a expressão mais significativa da riqueza de Manaus durante o Ciclo da Borracha. A orquestra Amazonas Filarmônica regularmente ensaia e se apresenta em seu interior.
Destaca-se também pelo estilo eclético de sua estrutura e os detalhes únicos de sua cúpula, o que o torna um dos monumentos mais conhecidos do Brasil e consequentemente o símbolo mais proeminente de Manaus.

English
The Amazon Theatre (Teatro Amazonas) is an opera house located in the heart of Manaus, inside the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. It is the location of the annual Festival Amazonas de Ópera (Amazonas Opera Festival) held in April.
It was built during the Belle Époque at a time when fortunes were made in the rubber boom. Construction of the Amazon Theater was first proposed in 1881 by a member of the House of Representatives, Antonio Jose Fernandes Júnior, the idea being to construct a jewel in the heart of the Amazonian forest and to make Manaus one of the great centers of civilization.
In the following year the State legislature approved some limited financing, but this was considered insufficient. In 1882, the president of the Province, Jose Lustosa Paranaguá, approved a larger budget and initiated a competition for the presentation of plans. By 1884, construction was ready to begin under the Italian architect Celestial Sacardim who planned for the theatre in the Renaissance style to be state of the art and to include electric lighting.
Work proceeded slowly over the following fifteen years with some stops and re-starts from 1885 to 1892. Roofing tiles came from Alsace while, from Paris, came furniture and furnishings in the style of Louis XV, much from the Koch Fréres company. From Italy came Carrarra marble for the stairs, statues, and columns. Steel walls were ordered from England. The theatre has 198 chandeliers, including 32 of Murano glass. The curtain, with its painting the "Meeting of the Waters" was originally created in Paris by Crispim do Amaral, depicts the junction of the Rio Negro and the Solimões to form the Amazon. On the outside of the building, the dome is covered with 36,000 decorated ceramic tiles painted in the colors of the national flag.
Work recommenced in 1893. By 1895, when the masonry work and external was completed, the decoration of the interior, and the installation of electric lighting, could begin more rapidly. The Italian Domenico de Angelis painted the beautiful panels that decorate the ceilings of the auditorium and of the audience chamber. However, even after its inauguration and first public presentations, two more years would pass before the building was finally completed, a project taking seventeen years in all.
The theatre was inaugurated on 31 December 1896, with the first performance occurring on 7 January 1897 with the Italian opera, La Gioconda, by Amilcare Ponchielli.
It has been restored four times, most recently in 1929, 1974 and between 1988 and 1990, and it currently has 701 seats covered with red velvet.
At night
It has been noted that, as of 2001, opera is once again flourishing at the theatre:
"Until four years ago, there had been no opera here for almost 90 years. Then a new governor of Amazonas was elected, a populist called Amazonino Mendes, who decided that his city should have a top-quality professional orchestra, choir and corps de ballet. He set aside about 1.5 million pounds a year, an enormous amount in a state where half the population is illiterate and living on about 60 pounds a month.
As a result Manaus has become the focus of a most unlikely musical migration. Some of Eastern Europe's best musicians have been tempted from such orchestras as the Kirov to Manaus with the lure of much higher wages. In fact, 39 of the 54-member Amazon Philharmonic orchestra are from Bulgaria, Belarus and Russia. Even the archivist hails from Belarus".
Today, the theatre is also the location for an annual film festival.

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

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.

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.

This picture was taken just outside of Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon. This parrot lived at the lodge where we stayed for a few days. He did not like to get his picture taken and kept flying around from tree to tree. I just kept following because I am hard headed. He finally gave up and decided to give me a little glance.

The pursuit of a great photo is half the fun for me in photography. In a 1000 images, I hope to get one good one. So I just try to enjoy the moment and hope I get lucky.

Hunslet 18" cylinder 'Austerity' 0-6-0ST 'Amazon', built by the Vulcan Foundry (works No.5297) in 1945, stands outside the running shed at Harrington Coal Preparation Plant, Lowca, on 25th August 1971. 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.
