Once upon a time in the Gardens of Fitzroy, the dainty princess Sleeping Beauty slumbered with the possums in the long grass. He had fallen into a deep sleep after biting an apple, which was poisoned with ethanol and amphetamines.
Thankfully, his loyal friend Edmundo was there to keep watch over him. Edmundo covered the Beauty with branches and leaves and flowers, hiding him from the vicious creatures that lurked in the shadows of the Building of Exhibitions.
Shhh... if you listen carefully, you can hear him in the video below, talking in his deep slumber...

There are many species of birds living around the Iguazu Falls, but when you're on the Argentinian side, standing in "La Garganta del Diablo" lookout ("the Devil's Throat"), you'll see hundreds of little dark-coloured birds flying in and out of the monstrous waterfall. They are Great Dusky Swifts.
