Aplomado Falcons (Falco femoralis) were once common in open grasslands and deserts from southern Texas to southern Arizona, the northernmost boundary of their range. Today they are listed as endangered and vary rare in the U.S. and northern Mexico, but efforts are underway to reintroduce them to Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.

Inhambane, also known as Terra de Boa Gente (Land of Good People), is a city located in southern Mozambique, Africa. It is known for being surrounded by a beautiful seaside and a combination of modern and rustic historic architecture, making it a popular place for tourists.
In our province (Flevoland) at this moment there are 8 land arts. I have visited 7 of them and this is my favorite one. Locally it is called the pooping man. There are wonderful sunsets by this sculpture. There is a new one coming this month.
