“Filandia is a town and municipality in the northern part of the department of Quindío, Colombia. It is located on the west side of Cordillera Central of the Andes mountain range running through central Colombia, 26 km north of the departmental capital Armeniaa. It is the northernmost of twelve municipalities that form Quindío, the second smallest department of Colombia. It houses a small community economically supported by agriculture and tourism. Although coffee is the major agricultural product, the municipality’s diverse ecosystem makes it perfect for the production of numerous fruits and vegetables. The population is evenly split between the urban and rural areas, with an urban population in the town of Filandia itself of nearly 7000 inhabitants and a population of around 6500 in the rest of the municipality. Most of the population is classified as mestizo and the most common religion is Roman Catholicc. The town’s architecture, landscapes and the sociability of the locals makes Filandia one of the most beautiful and attractive towns in the department of Quindio and the nation. The town’s best-known tourist attractions are its “mirador” with its extensive views over the Cauca River valley to the west and the Parque Nacional Natural los Nevadoss to the east (it is also possible to see both Armenia and Pereira from the top of the tower), and the cafe in the main square where scenes from the popular Colombian telenovela Cafe, con aroma de mujer were filmed.”
I saw this sign graphic that use his bicycle doing advertising around the city.

The Golden Retriever is a breed of dog, historically developed as a gundog to retrieve shot waterfowl and upland game during hunting. As such they were bred to have a soft mouth to retrieve game undamaged and an instinctive love of water. Their intelligence and versatility sees them employed in a variety of roles including illegal drug detection, search and rescue, as hunting dogs and as guide dogs. Its friendly, eager-to-please nature and patient demeanor has also made it one of the most popular family dogs in the world today.
Colleen Sanclemente took this pic, haha yes that me. I’m Melba’s daughter. I dont feel like ive formally introduced myself to you guys on word press. My mom and I have been taking pictures to share pictures that we consider beautiful. Pictures are moments that can never be captured again. This picture was taken out of the 50 other pictures i took of these dogs. There was a strange thing i saw in this picture though. If you look closely at their tails, you see that they almost form a heart. I never would have imagined myself being able to take a picture like this. Other than that, i just really love animals. I could take pictures of them for hours and not get tired. I hope you enjoyed this little memory of mine.
Caique Pionites Rating: Psittaciformes, Psittacidae Pionites Geographic area: Northern South America All or Pionites caiques are native to South America and occupy a large area of distribution that includes most of the swamps of the Amazon River from the west coast of Bolivia to areas of eastern Peru and Bolivia. Although the ranges of both species are adjacent are clearly separated. The black-headed caiques (Pionites melanocephala) live in the north of the Amazon River while white-breasted caiques (Pionites leucogaster) do so in the south of this river. Thus both species are inexorably separated by the Amazon River when we consider their limited ability to fly them from crossing the huge gap between both sides. Some authors say they can not fly more than a few hundred yards before falling to the ground exhausted. This lack of ability to fly is in part a very heavy body have some wings too short. . the caique (Pionites) is friendly and easily established bond with humans without showing fear or nervousness. It is confident, calm and very intelligent. All qualities that have captivated, in recent years, many ornitófilos passionate.

Zona geográfica: América del Sur Septentrional
Todos los caiques o pionites son nativos de Sudamérica y ocupan una amplia zona de distribución que comprende la mayor parte de las zonas pantanosas del río Amazonas, desde la costa oeste de Bolivia a las zonas del este de Perú y Bolivia. Aunque las zonas de distribución de ambas especies son adyacentes se encuentran claramente separadas. Los caiques de cabeza negra (Pionites melanocephala) viven en la zona norte del río Amazonas mientras los caiques de pecho blanco (Pionites leucogaster) lo hacen en la zona sur de este río. Así pues ambas especies se encuentran inexorablemente separadas por el río Amazonas si tenemos en cuenta su limitada capacidad de vuelo que les impide cruzar la enorme distancia que separa ambas orillas. Algunos autores afirman que no pueden volar más de unos centenares de yardas antes de caer al suelo exhaustos. Esta falta de habilidad para el vuelo se debe en parte poseen un cuerpo muy pesado unas las alas excesivamente cortas. . El caique
(Pionites) es simpático y establece fácilmente lazos afectivos con los humanos sin mostrar miedo ni nerviosismo. Es confiado, tranquilo y muy inteligente. Cualidades todas ellas que han cautivado, desde hace algunos años, a muchos ornitófilos apasionados.

I was on my way to visit my sister when my mom saw this motorcycle right next to us. I immediatly took advantage of the oppertunity and took this picture. I had to take more than 10 of them to finally get it right because it kept looking blurred, but I am happy with my final product. I hope you like it as much as I do.
