🗻 Just got back from the nearby forests of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range where I went to choose my field site for my thesis work, and where I will hopefully (definitely) find more of these guys! If you could do outdoor work anywhere in the world, where would you want to work?? 🌲

From the May 24, 1943 photo essay by Alfred Eisenstaedt, "SPRING ON THE FARM IN PENNSYLVANIA." The essay showed the readers of LIFE what spring looked like in Lancaster County, PA in the spring of 1943. According to LIFE, "the richest farming county east of the Rocky Mountains." This image ran with the following caption: "Five o'clock milking is a family chore on the Aaron H. Weaver farm in East Drumore township, near Quarryville. The Weavers are Mennonites whose Swiss ancestors came to Pennsylvania seven generations ago. (l. to r.) are Harold, 12; Anna Mary, 10; Ruth, 9; Miriam, 14; Mother Mary; and Father Aaron.

Cats of Africa #6 : The Lion King
Practice makes perfect! If you want to become the next king of the savannah you have to start practicing early! With all those lion cubs being so absolutely sweet and adorable it's hard to imagine that this same cub will be a fearsome mighty grown lion in a few years.
Cats of Africa #5 : The Leopard
We had been travelling for almost 2 months through southern Africa before we spotted the first leopard. All those weeks over weeks of looking into trees, stopping for a slight shadow between the leafs or branches suspiciously moving without spotting anything finally paid out when we saw our first leopard on an evening game drive in northern Tanzania. Lucky enough we would be seeing even more of them the following weeks, to the point were one of them even visited us at our campsite in the middle of the night...
