GFDF Full English Breakfast! . I have posted before about my AlphaGal Red Meat Allergy, and here is my update. . AlphaGal antibody is detected from a simple blood test. The normal range is 0 to 0.1. When I was diagnosed 4 years ago, my number was 50X normal at 5.3. I had a follow up test two months ago, and my number was down to 1.2. My doctor thought the number was low enough to schedule a red meat food challenge. I was to eat pork sausage for breakfast an hour before arriving at the his office for observation. I truly expected that I would pass the test and celebrated early with a phenomenal Full English Breakfast. Unfortunately, I experienced itchy hives all over my body and swelling of my tongue. I failed the challenge. . My AlphaGal Red meat allergy is the result of a Lonestar tick bite, which passed the antibody to me from a deer. Unlike a peanut allergy where the response is immediate, AlphaGal reaction is delayed 4 to 6 hours, which makes it hard to diagnose. . Both of my sons are Eagle Scouts, and I camped with their troop each month for nearly six years. I believe the red meat allergy is my souvenir from the experience, as we routinely pulled ticks off of us. . Fortunately, this is an allergy that can be out grown. I’ll try the challenge again in another year or two. So until then, I will continue to avoid: beef, pork, deer, lamb, goat, bison, camel, rabbit, squirrel, kangaroo, bats, whale, and others while I try not to get another lonestar tick bite! . #alphagal #alphagalallergy #redmeatallergy #noredmeat #noredmeatforme #noredmeats #glutenfreedave #foodallergyawareness #foodallergychallenge #foodallergies

Really looking forward to getting stuck back into my Greater Horseshoe Bat photo project that finished in late September last year with the onset of the cool weather. This is a young ‘Greater’ foraging along a hedge. 📷 Olympus EX1x with 7-14mm f2.8 Pro lens. #olympusuk #breakfreewitholympus #olympusem1x #olympusmentor #cactus _image #cognisysinc #batsarecool #batconservation #batsofinstagram #savethebats #batsarecute #savethebats #ecologistuk #ukwildlifeimages #uk _widlife_images #natureTTL #bbcspringwatch #cupoty #conservation #britishmammal #thebritishwildlife #discovery _uk #bats #batlove #batphotography #batsuk #outdoorphotographymagazine #royalphotographicsociety #devonphotographyworkshop #photographyworkshopuk

Alright, bats – there’s a new house available for you in the neighborhood! I hope you move in soon. 🦇💙 [image description: Garrett stands next to a giant wooden pole that is supporting a majestic bat house in his backyard. He is wearing a teal shirt and blue sweatpants. There is a gravel seating area behind him with a fire pit in the center.] #SaveTheBats #BatHouse #Bats #ILoveBats

Some farmer just created an agave forest! Was it due to the covid economic slow down that they weren't able to harvest their agave field? Or have they joined some bat precting initiative to let them feast on their agave field... I'll ask around, meanwhile enjoy this view!

Descending into abandoned desert mines might be your idea of an adventure...or a nightmare. For our conservationists, it's an essential part of our work in Mojave National Preserve. Surveying for wildlife and collecting data, BCI provides our partners @nationalparkservice with insight that leads to the protection and preservation of this important habitat and the animals that call it home. ⁠ ⁠ 1) Jackson Bain rappels into an incline.

Don't worry, little skypupper, you can come out now: not only is it Friday, we've also just released the Australian Journal of Zoology's Bat Research Special Issue, Part 2! The special issue honours Dr Leslie Hall, described as a "gentleman of conservation and the original bat superhero", who passed away early in 2019. Research published in the issue covers conservation concerns, the impact of bushfires, citizen science efforts, diet analysis, roosting behaviour and so much more. So if you're batty for these little flying mammals, head on over to our website to read the special issue. 📷: _pavan_ on Flickr #FlyingFoxFriday #AusJZoology #FlyingFoxes #AustralianBats #SaveTheBats #BatScience
