I will be entering cat hell again from for the next week. House sitting my cousin’s seven cats. Hope the following can entertained you until my return. Unless my next stop is an asylum.

A man is a method, a progressive arrangement; a selecting principle, gathering his like to him; wherever he goes.

A long exposure picture shows Japanese red-crowned cranes sleeping in their winter roost on a river lightened under the nearly full moon at Kushiro, an eastern city in Hokkaido, a northern island in Japan as temperatures lie at around -20C. The cranes overwinter on a river that does not freeze to protect themselves from their natural enemies like foxes, weasels, crows, Steller’s sea eagles, white-tailed eagles and others. The estimated population of the red-crowned crane lies between 2,000 and 2,500 birds, with habitats in northern Japan, north-eastern China, Mongolia, Korean Peninsula and eastern Russia. The population on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido is estimated at about 1,200 cranes. So far it appears that the Japan disaster has not had any adverse effects on the animals’ habitat on Hokkaiko (Kimimasa Mayama/EPA)
