Video by @tbfrost | This is a Grey Crowned Crane, found in Eastern and Southern Africa. I was filming it in slow motion with my phone, mesmerized by its staggering beauty, when I guess it decided the phone looked appetizing and began pecking at it! I immediately left it alone after this as it was obvious it wasn't a fan of phones , people, or thought the phone was food - and I didn't want to disturb it. Now onto more important information: It grows about 3 feet tall and is listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It is the national bird of Uganda and is one of two crane species that can roost in trees thanks to a long hind toe. My favorite thing about this crane though Is the light colored eyelid that closes as the crane pecks at my phone. Can you see it? That is called a nictating membrane , it is an inner eyelid that closes when the bird thrusts its head underwater to catch a fish or other prey items. It protects the eye and allows the crane to see underwater. Why I really like this is that it shows cranes and many other birds are closely related to crocodiles, my favorite animal and the subject of my latest work for nat geo.
This crane was in captivity as part of an important conservation breeding program.

Just stoppin' by to deliver some early CHRISTMAS joy.
And by joy, I mean the the hangry crocodile is seconds away from devouring his bite size chocolate snack named Kevin Hart. Yum.

Enon Avital (@e_known) reached for a bottle of honey, not an inkwell, when he wrote a message of good wishes for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. “At the beginning, I was doing traditional typography — just ink on paper, pencil on paper. Nothing like I’m doing now,” says the New Jersey-based designer and web developer. But eventually Enon looked to more unconventional materials — everything from kiwi to pencil shavings — and turned them into Hebrew typography. “I like the pieces I can eat at the end. That’s always fun,” he says.
Rosh Hashana begins this week and focuses on leaving the old behind and embracing the new. “We drop all negativity,” says Enon. “When the community as a whole asks for forgiveness and resets, we are all refreshed. That is what Rosh Hashana is all about.”
