Uh, oh! Who's gonna win this stand-off? Scary!

Re your comment on the cold winter: It was the worst winter we've had during 25 years in Florida...but, the weather folks say this was the warmest winter on record around the world. Go figure!

Nature is wonderful isn't it. These instincts are born in them to protect their young.

Patagonia has the most surprising combinations of creatures. I would have thought a movie director accidentally placed a penguin in Australia. This is fascinating, and a great catch!
