Photo of a cute Spotted Thick-knee also known as Cape Thick-knee @ Desert Dome, Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo Nebraska (2012 Photo)

This cute but with-attitude bird was lying on the sand on Desert Dome in Omaha’s famous zoo – Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo in Nebraska. Since it is a desert bird, it’s color easily camouflages with the sand to hide itself from the enemy. And look at those long tender legs !!

Info From Wikipedia (Creative Commons):
The spotted thick-knee, which can reach up to 18 inches in height, has long legs and a brown-and-white speckled coat. It ranges widely through sub-Saharan Africa, where it occupies dry grasslands and savannas. The spotted dikkop’s brown, spotted feathers provide camouflage, making it difficult to spot in the grasslands where it lives. The species hunts exclusively on the ground, feeding on insects, small mammals and lizards. It also nests on the ground, lining a scrape with grasses, feathers, pebbles and twigs. The female typically lays two eggs, and males and females rear offspring together, with both bringing food back to the nest. The birds will even fake injuries to lead predators away from the nest.

Man Falling From The Sky – The Best Jumping Shot Photo # 1

Did the man fall from the Sky? Well he did not, but it is a great example of low angle shot in photography. The friend of mine jumped from that wood and was like four or five feet high. But I took this photo lying from the ground giving an effect of him falling down from the sky.

I have been to the Sears Towers in Chicago quite a few times. Now, it’s called Willis Tower. Normally I get onto the top and gaze around other sky scrappers, but on this particular day it was cold and cloudy. So we just walked by this tower. If you visit this place, make sure to eat the Pizza at Giordino’s. Absolutely awesome pizzas they serve. It’s just around the corner there.
