Friday Ark #57

Cats, Dogs, Spiders and ? every Friday.

We'll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and....?

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Visit each border and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders. And do link to the Friday Ark whether you use trackbacks or not.

Dog folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 83rd edition will be hosted this week by Mind of Mog. There are more weekly cats at eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants.

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. Send your links for the 9th edition to Hedwig the Owl. The 8th edition is up and hosted by the Science and Sarcasm.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The first edition is up at Milk River Blog.

Arkive editions of the Friday Ark.

Alert: There will be no updates today between 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM EDT.

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

Hello dear modulator and friends,

This week's issue Birds in the News (#32), features an award-winning photograph of a peregrine falcon pursuing a large flock of Starlings. This photo, titled Sky Chase, was selected from more than 17,000 international wildlife photos to win the photographer, Italian Manuel Presti, the coveted title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The story is near the bottom of the page. Another intersting story provided by several readers discusses the Bald Eagle, Old Abe, who helped win the Civil War in the USA (includes actual news paper photo of Old Abe!). As usual, there are lots of international news stories and photos presented on this weekly link harvest that focuses on birds.

Soon after I posted the picture of Church and Snowball to the Ark, I got a call from the vet. Snowball has fallen to whatever evil virus had befallen her. She was a cute kitten. So, if possible, Snowball is in the In Memoriam category. :(
