Going to Xtremes....

Sometimes if you want to see nature you need to immerse yourself in high speed......from a height of 45 feet. This is a picture of your correspondent taken 2 minutes before I took this dragonfly photo. You can see my camera clipped off to my butt.


fig. 1: Tai Haku on location.
This is Canyoning and its awesome. A day of extremely hard work and adrenalin-pumping jumps and rapeils. Best of all for me was the way we got to work our way through wonderfully unspoilt habitat. I was convinced I was going to find a hispaniolan boa the whole day but kind of had to focus on not killing myself.
PS - I shamelessly stole the fig. label idea from Dr Isis who hilariously illustrates all her posts thusly. Her blog is awesome as is her recipe showdown with the foulmouthed but equally brilliant Physioprof.

Tai Haku, imitation is the sincerest for of flattery. Or some crap like that.

These are amazing pictures. I am very much enjoying the blog.

why thank you Dr I. I'm very much enjoying your blog (though was sad to hear of the loss of your child-free sanctuary).
