Ghost of the forest, A wild Lynx in the wilderness of the Retezat Mountains, Unesco Biosphere Reserve of Romania

Ghost of the forest
A wild Lynx in the wilderness of the Retezat Mountains, Unesco Biosphere Reserve of Romania. Photographed with a camera trap, and without the help of flashes - as I was after an 'as if I was there' look, and I know I wouldn't have used one in that case. I find the camouflage of these big cats fascinating, especially because I used to wonder how an 'orange' predator could hide so well in a 'green' forest when I was a child. It turns out forests aren't really that green after all.
I am incredibly honoured that this picture has won the 'Animal In the Environment' category in the Hungarian Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, and has been chosen as the opening feature of the December issue of the Hungarian National Geographic Magazine. For a better view, have a look at my new site in the comments below. I have been working on the wildlife the Retezat Mountains over the last few years and soon I will share a lot more of that work!
Season's greetings to all of you!

Láthatatlan ragadozó
Kárpáti hiúz a romániai Retyezát-hegységben. A hiúz rejtőzködő életmódot folytató állat, rendkívül óvatosan mozog az erdőben, ráadásul a mintázatával tökéletesen beleolvad a környezetébe. A Retyezát Nemzeti Park vadonjáról és érintetlen erdőiről szóló sorozatom részeként készült ez a felvétel, egy mozgásérzékelő segítségével. A kint hagyott fényképezőgépet nappali körülményeknek megfelelően állítottam be; a vaku mellőzésével minél inkább olyan képet szerettem volna készíteni, mintha észrevétlenül én is jelen lehettem volna azon a keskeny gerincen, amikor megjelent a hiúz.
Idén az a megtiszteltetés ért, hogy ez a kép nyerte az Állatok a Környezetükben kategóriát az Év Természetfotósa pályázaton, és a Magyarországi National Geographic a Decemberi hónap 'Tabló' képének választotta. Jobb minőségben az új weboldalamon tekinthető meg a felvétel.
Jó szórakozást és áldott békés ünnepeket kívánok!

Fantoma Pădurii
Un Râs fotografiat în Munții Retezat cu ajutorul unui sensor de mișcare. Ca sa obțin o imagine - cât mai apropiată de una pe care aș fi facută dacă eram și eu prezent când a apărut râsul - am decis să nu folosesc blițuri. Mă fascinează camuflajul acestui animal, în copilărie nu am putut să-mi deau seama cum poate să se camufleze un prădător 'portocaliu' într-o pădure 'verde'. Până la urmă pădurea nu este de departe atât de 'verde'...
Am avut onoarea deosebită să câștig categoria 'Animale în peisajul lor natural' la competiția 'Fotograful de natură al anului' din Ungaria, și să am această imagine selectată pentru sectiunea 'Viziuni' în revista National Geographic din Ungaria. Pentru o vizualizare mai bună, vă recomand să vizitați noul meu site.
Vă doresc sărbători fericite și un an nou plin de împliniri!

Vietnam Folk Musics

 Ca tru is a traditional Vietnamese singing style. Ca tru singing is a traditional art in northern Vietnam, incorporating singing along with some ethnic instruments.
 
Ca tru dating from the 15th century, was a kind of court in the royal court and was liked by the nobles and intellectuals. Ca tru is a fine combination of the peak of poetry and music.
 
Ca tru's name has been documented by ancient records. On the Sino-Vietnamese documents "trù" in "ca tru" use the word "trù". Accordingly, the card is made of bamboo, on the card with the amount (or regulation implicitly for each card corresponding to a sum of money), to reward digging and double right in the performance instead of the reward. cash; At the end of the song will be based on the number of cards that pay for digging and double or ward.
 
The decider for this award is the official (guest listens to the song), using the drum (to hold the wedding). That is the origin of the name ca trù; is also the term used in this article.

 
Ca tru is recognized as intangible heritage in 2009.
Ca tru is recognized as intangible heritage in 2009.
 
However, ca tru, meaning a singing style with the card to reward as mentioned above, only in ca tru singing temple worship, ie worship. Ca tru singing in the restaurant or in the home later do not see the reward card anymore.
 
Ca Tru has been in existence since the Le dynasty (15th century) after the bonsai tree was built by Dinh Le (or Dinh Du in some churches). Ca tru is a form of performing arts that uses many forms of literature, such as the rich, the story, the immersion, but the most popular form is singing.
 
Singing appeared early, but it was not until the early 19th century that there were such works as Nguyen Cong Tru, Cao Ba Quat ... The origin of the singing style in Vietnamese literature is explained. By the following causes and things: Singing is the veneration of the hymns.
 
Before Sing said, in Vietnam there were oval songs, singing the temple door, the temple, the song screams. The cymbals on the occasion of that festival gradually shifted to use and be organized by the guests, wearing guests right in their own entertainment.
 
The a dao songs started from there; Singing is the concretization of the influence of Lao-Trang's thought. In the past, Vietnamese literature on content had to be restrained in Confucian ideals, in the form of strict rules, expressions.
 
At the end of the 18th century, due to the confusing situation in society, the thought of Lao-Trang had the opportunity to expand and to sing. It was the creativity of the liberal liberal, where they could send a brocade. thoughts and emotions are beyond the scope of the word, with a broader, more open expression; Singing is a variation of the song.
 
Old writers say that Singing is a form of transformation of the immersion in the Song of the Green: In the song say there is the sound of the poem, many verses with rhymes, rhymes, love. But when it was developed, Sing said is a mixture of poetry, rich, green, song, quartet, speech ...

Although Vietnam has made great efforts and supports from some international organizations in protecting Vietnam Folk Musics, the vitality of Ca tru is not high and still needs to be protected. to develop viability. The constant maintenance and quality of art is a matter for the protection of Ca Tru.
 
It is necessary to raise awareness about Ca Tru to have more public and social status because it has been forgotten since the 1950s.
 
It is necessary to support older artisans to teach and encourage young women and children to learn and participate in teaching ... so in the future, the art of ca tru - this intangible cultural heritage. hope for survival and development.
