PAPA-PEPPER AT @SHALOMACRES - HELPING ON THE HOMESTEAD
https://steemitimages.com/0x0/http://gifmaker.me/files/download/home/20180116/18/2LcVyQ7qJ7PuINtrzpXQ45/output_uFKRth.gif

## <center>For those of you who don't know, @papa-pepper is on an overnight trip to @shalomacres.</center>

-------------
They've got a big job on their hands today, and many hands make light work. @Mericanhomestead was already coming down, and thought that I might want to tag along and help out while I learn, so I jumped at the opportunity. What's the task at hand? Actually, they are going to butcher a cow.

For those who still eat meat, many prefer these days to be more "hands on" and are opting for raising their own. Here at @shalomacres, they haven't even needed to purchase meat from the store in over four years now. Since I am just entering this lifestyle, and since they can use some help, I've come down to learn more about the process.

Before @mericanhomestead and I took to our couches for the night, @randomstuff, the oldest son of @shalomacres, had to feed two of the baby sheep on

Amazing Animals #16 The Great White Shark
The Great White Shark, like my previously covered animal the [Hyena](https://steemit.com/animals/@amavi/amazing-animals-15-the-spotted-hyena), is an animal that has gained a bad reputation from a number of movies, the species is best known for its role as the bloodthirsty killing machine in the film Jaws, whilst I am under no illusion that they wouldn’t be capable of inflicting the damage seen in Jaws, they are far from mindless killing machines, and have earnt a wrongly deserved reputation. 

<center>![tgyuoij.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSoiywrbPvtaCfLKr93rsjw6M9NwjCPDR9jSmbPtAayM9/tgyuoij.jpg)</center><center> [Source: The Great White shark](https://3c1703fe8d.site.internapcdn.net/newman/gfx/news/hires/2014/tgyuoij.jpg)</center>

The Great White Shark is perhaps the most successful solitary predator on Earth, every part of their design is adapted for efficiency during the hunt, they are powerful, deadly and intelligent, a truly apex predator within their vast Oceanic realm.

AMAZING HORSE PHOTOS IN THE SNOW
https://i.imgur.com/okAoCvO.jpg

## <center>While I am somewhat afraid of getting kicked by a horse, I still wanted to photograph them.</center>

----------
Several of my neighbors have horses. There is something magnificent and majestic about them. I've ridden one of them, and we crashed into a light pole, so that didn't go as good as it could have. It was either the horses fault or "operator error" on that one. Anyway, when the big, fluffy snow began to fall yesterday, I decided to head out to try to photograph one of the horses. This particular one is in a field with a few cows, including our young heifer, which you can see i some of the photos. 

While a few of these shots may be somewhat similar, I decided to "keep" them all because of the slight differences despite the similarities. Take a peek and see what you think, but I think the horse did well for this spur of the moment photo shoot.

ROUGH DAYS ON THE HOMESTEAD - BUT WE ARE MAKING THE BEST OF IT
https://i.imgur.com/twNgeby.jpg

## <center>When wild animals attack your livestock, it can be hard.</center>

---------
Often, it can be difficult to even know what kind of animal is attacking your flocks or herds. However, this is just what happens in the world. Frequently, wild predators will find your farm animals to be an easy prey, which is part of the reason that proper housing and fencing is important. However, it is often not reasonable or even nice to "keep your livestock locked up" in a cage all day...

## <center>DEATH FROM ABOVE</center>

https://i.imgur.com/60yYlfF.jpg

What do you do when you come out to check on your flock and it looks like one of your chickens or roosters **exploded?** Here, a treasured homestead animal has been found "killed to death," and to make things even worse, the children are there...

http://i.imgur.com/VoOmEC0.jpg

The list of potential predators is rather large, even around here. Raccoons, Opossums, Coyotes, Owls, Hawks, Wild Dogs,

SNOW ON THE HOMESTEAD! - WHITE BUNNY IN THE SNOW
https://i.imgur.com/rN8Jgwc.jpg


## <center>With the new white blanket of snow on the ground, I wanted to try a little bit of photography with one of our whiter rabbits.</center>

-------------
I wasn't completely sure how this would work out, but I was willing to give it a try and I'm happy with the results. Check out the pics and see what you think.

The rabbit was quite content to be out on the snow. A few times it wanted to run away, but once it found grasses and twigs protruding from beneath the fresh snow, it was happy to just sit and nibble. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the photo shoot.

Last Year We Realized There Were Fluorescent Frogs, This Year We Find Fluorescent Chameleons!
It's time for me to take a step outside my comfort zone again. I prattle on about biochemistry all of the time and I am sure you are used to reading my blogs about enzymes and DNA, proteins and bacteria. Well today let's [take a walk on the wild side](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KaWSOlASWc), and talk about chameleons. More specifically [chameleons](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chameleon) that can glow under a black light.

The reason we do this is purely because I was reading an article recently published in Nature: Scientific Reports titled "Widespread bone-based fluorescence in chameleons." This article originally caught my eye from its title alone as I said to myself "What? Fluorescent Bones? In a land animal?" So on that small mind blowing of mine, lets dive in and learn a bit about what bones fluoresce in a chameleon and think about why this might be useful for the animal.

The Wild Plain - photo's from an adventure
The photo's below are some I took this passing week on a Game farm in South Africa (in Limpopo). As I am from Cape Town, I was a tourist in my own counry enjoying a whole different natural environment. 

My friend and I sat on a wooden deck, very quietly and watched how the animals walked into an open grassland plain before us.

This Kudu heard the clicking sound of my camera.

I love this Warthog shot with the dove and the water lines reflecting on the piggy.

I took a bunch of photo's while this Impala was running and this is the best shot.

THE WILD-MAN'S WILD FRIENDS VIDEO SERIES - EPISODE 59 - WHITE-THROATED SPARROW
https://i.imgur.com/1WXpKYv.jpg

## <center>Finally, a wild feathered friend!</center>

-------------


Birds are a little different than most of my friends. These two White-Throated Sparrows were in a small building today, so I grabbed them to let them out, but not before shooting this quick video. It is a little shorter than normal, but I only had so much info I could remember in the moment with the camera rolling. 

Birds have much different bodies and respiratory systems than a lot of other animals too, so I try to never hang onto them too long. Like any other wild animal, the best place for them to be is in the wild. 

https://i.imgur.com/XbUaHzJ.jpg

These little birds find themselves in the middle of the food chain; right above berries, seeds, and insects, but below predatory birds like owls and hawks, and a lot of hungry mammals too. They spend the springtime mating in Canada and the New England area of the United States, but migrate further south in the winter, hence them being in my  area now. They

7 Day Black & White Challenge: Day 7!
Here is my seventh and final black and white photo. There's something very inviting, warm and comforting about it I find. I have enjoyed the challenge and hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Thank you all. 

I was nominated by @beulinator who's just getting started on Steemit. Why not show your support? 

Today, I'd like to nominate @cecicastor who is a regular contributor to my posts and always provides though provoking and valuable content.

![IMG_20180117_182237.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdJPXeFztfWyxdsuU2uKgVSCzcLCd6FxDTgNjdcHKQ97M/IMG_20180117_182237.jpg)

These are the rules to be taken into account:

• Seven black and white images that represent an aspect of your life.

• Present one image every day for seven days.

• No people.

• No explanation.

• Nominate someone every day, but anyone can join the fun.

• Use the tag - #sevendaybnwchallenge - as one of your five tags.

## <center>Let Week 19 begin!</center>


---------
So, @papa-pepper enjoys plants and animals from all around the world, so what better photography contest could I run than one where you get to photograph plants and animals together, in some combination photography?

Before I get into the winners of the contest last week, I’ll quickly share with you again what I am looking for by featuring some photos of mine. In the cover photo, I combined a Copperhead snake with some oak leaves, with the Copperhead snake being the animal and the oak leaves being the plant. Although the grass was just part of the background, both a plant and an animal were in the photo, hence it qualifies as a *combination*.

Please understand, by *combination photography* I mean that you should *combine* two elements; plants and animals. *At least one plant and at least one animal* should be featured in your photo to have it qual

Eyeballed By Beef Cattle While Taking Photos Of Beautiful Flowers Along The Country Road.
![20180102_112141 (2).jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmepuqzmuw9KFZmnxw8YPJGnheNFJY3nrRNr4dJZfnXkmm/20180102_112141%20(2).jpg)

**I absolutely adore driving around the country side during the early morning hours, looking for something different and beautiful to capture for s steemit post.**

![20180102_112131 (1).jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSWekFBZJSHyNGkwdZQMHcBiCwa2r8XNKdvsvBv9o6ZNf/20180102_112131%20(1).jpg)

**On our way to the coast we took a little detour through the mountains on a breathtaking but unfamiliar dirt road filled with potholes.  The road was suppose to take me about an hour to complete according to my GPS but for me it took nearly four hours as I could not resist the temptation to stop and take a photo every time I saw something beautiful.**

![20180102_112107.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmeyu4SmrYKfxcQFc7E4Ra8SpyTjr7AP6X8XeFxc6yvCSu/20180102_112107.jpg)

**This little beauty caught my eye and I saw a perfect picture in the making with the cattle and the mountains as a backdrop.

What I learnt last week 26: Life from Citrus, Beeloved bee troubles, Titanic Earth, Monkey Medicine & Bacteria Genomic Control!
<div class=text-justify>

A few throwbacks to previous weeks today. Science is an ever-evolving system, in which being *wrong* can often be as substantial as being *right*. But sometimes being corrected doesn't necessitate being wrong, either. Just outdated, or one option from many could be valid. Let's see what I'm talking about:

# Monday: The recipe for life requires lemons

<center>![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmccY1eHtZdx4S4m9PqsaupvS5eH3X1RQQR1ds1sKqJXYH/image.png)</center>

On at least two of my weekly learning posts I've put forth recent news on how life could have started, or at least what ingredients and conditions were required. Well now we have another!

So apparently, all aerobic life - life that requires oxygen - need something called the *citric acid cycle* which releases the stored energy in cells. Given that everything we know in this are requires it, it's not too hard to trace such a vital mechanism back to the beginning of life, but the ingredients required weren't around in the first bil

Surviving the Extremes: The Dead Sea is very much Alive

<div class=text-justify>

You know when scheming corporations find subtle loopholes in the system to avoid tax and maximize their existence? I feel like they got that idea from evolution.

It seems that whenever the Earth decides *No Life Must Enter Here*, life just kinda finds a tiny little loophole to slip through and does it anyway, with a usually microscopic little finger sticking it to the man (or woman, nobody knows what gender evolution is). 

# The Dead Sea

Perhaps one of the most famous seas in the world for its somewhat unique property of being very, very salty. So salty that tourists can float on top without any effort of  breath control. The salt also makes it very, very dangerous, and contact with your eyes could cau

JAILED!!! For A Moment
![DSC_0041 (2).JPG](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdKuAQu8W7EJTL7yomhaq6Rp5gJ6M4bUpRHfLefUjr3zt/DSC_0041%20(2).JPG)

That one time we went to jail. It sucked really really bad, we were in a cell for almost 10 hours, you guys, unbelievable. 
Luckily they fed us some food. But that food was cheap, nasty, tasted like shit and it was a terrible experience, seriously, don't ever go to jail, you will eat very poorly.

I am pretty sure Foofa almost pooped her pants there, if she did do it though, I swear to jesus, we would never make it outta there alive, her stuff is poisonous, like you will die . . .

At that horrible time, all I could think about was fresh fish, you know, just something to get distracted for a minute, it's what kept me going, what gave me strength to keep breathing and believing in a better tomorrow and a bright future full of fresh fish.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD... IN A WINTER WONDERLAND SORT OF WAY
https://i.imgur.com/ZMLkiZY.jpg


## <center>Now this reminds me of my homeland!</center>

------------
Back in Wisconsin, snowfalls like this are the norm. Here in the Ozarks, though, they are few and far between. In the two years that we've been down here, this is the most that we've ever seen. It sure puts a different look on everything.

When I woke up this morning, I wasn't expecting this. One reason is that I don't pay much attention to the weather, unless I am outside. Up north, this was pretty much a daily event, and I sure did not enjoy the half hour drive to work in extremely snowy and icy conditions on a road where the posted speed limit was 65 mph. A lot of accidents happened almost daily up there and a lot of people slid into the ditch without any help from other drivers. Thankfully, this is the first time this season that my truck has looked like this!

Terrarium report - we have a new wet hiding place:)
<html>
<p>Hi, guys!</p>
<p>Today I again updated my terrarium a bit, to be more specific - I made a new wet hiding place for my girls.</p>
<p>For reptiles as geckos it's very important to have a wet cave. It makes molting process easy, and they can cool their skin there if needed. Earlier I used a plastic container, but today I found a nice ceramic pumpkin, so they will have an instant Halloween:)</p>

A Wood Stork
<html>
<p>Look at this video I got of a Wood Stork at The Celery Fields in Sarasota, Florida. The Wood Stork is a funny looking bird. It's head doesn't have any feathers and gives it an old man sort of look. In this video you can see it's feeding habits. It uses it's feet to stir up the mud to flush the small fish, it then grabs them with it's large bill. These birds are very common around The Celery Fields and are here year round.</p>
<p>https://youtu.be/FVrhFfCpfdo</p>
<p>They are funny looking, don't you think? They look like old men. When they are juveniles, they do have some feathers on their head and some yellow in their bill.</p>
<p>https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-QzJkJS8/0/7a7b5785/X2/i-QzJkJS8-X2.jpg</p>
<p>You can see when they stretch out their wings, they have black on the edges.</p>

7 Day Black & White Challenge: Day 6
I haven't been able to do my last 2 black n white photos for the last few days but here I am again, on the way to completing it. I don't like abandoning something that I undertake and so after this on there's one more left to go now.

I'm not permitted to annotate the photos so I'll just say that this one represents my life; members of our small family.

I was nominated by @beulinator who's just getting started on Steemit. Why not show your support? Today I have no particular nomination,  however who ever wants to join in and start this challenge,  I encourage you to do so. 

![IMG_20180116_173154.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmYsYkGPgs98H9VgeaKfzANyCLijx8kY3Rx7TJwoiM7Th7/IMG_20180116_173154.jpg)

These are the rules to be taken into account:

• Seven black and white images that represent an aspect of your life.

• Present one image every day for seven days.

• No people.

• No explanation.

• Nominate someone every day, but anyone can join the fun.

• Use the tag - #sevendaybnwchallenge - as o
