I ran across these little slimy characters this weekend and couldn’t resist getting them in front of my camera. Here is a little bit of information about a Slug.
On top of the slug, behind the head, is the saddle-shaped mantle, and under this are the genital opening and anus. On one side (almost always the right hand side) of the mantle is a respiratory opening, which is easy to see when open, but difficult to see when closed. This opening is known as the pneumostome.

I am not sure what it is about their eyes. But when they look back at me, I am glad I have a camera to capture that look.
This weekend a few friends and I are traveling to Louisiana to tour and photograph at CHIMP HAVEN…
We will be able to share the joy of watching some of the 111 retired research chimpanzees experience new-found freedoms.
Please share this with everyone you know.

Most Lady Bugs I find are orange but this one was red so he became my best bud today… If you look closely you can see it’s cleaning it’s right antenna with it’s front leg.
I captured this image with my Nikon D800 and Tamron 60mm F2 lens. My settings were:Shutter Speed – 1/160 Aperture – 4.0 ISO – 400

If you have never heard of CHIMP HAVEN, you are in for a treat. This is a sanctuary for Chimps that are being retired from research.
Their Mission: To provide humane care for chimpanzees that have been used for biomedical research, or other purposes, and which are no longer used for those purposes. To provide large, enriched and permanent housing for these animals in accordance with all state and federal regulations pertaining to the care and housing of these nonhuman primates. To provide noninvasive research opportunities on the behavior and biology of chimpanzees and to disseminate this information to others in publicly available formats. To educate the public about these endangered nonhuman primates and the needs for conservation in the wild and protection in captivity.
On May 17th I will be heading to Louisiana to spend the night for an all day event on the 18th there at Chimp Haven. For $40, you get a full tour of the facility, lunch, a chance to see the chimps in a natural setting and of course, PHOTOS… The sanctuary is normally not open to the public with the exception of a handful of dates throughout the year.
If anyone is interested in traveling with me for this May 18th event, please let me know and I will provide you with all the details.
