Ahh, now that's what I call cute (and of course technically well exposed, sharp etc, etc)! Who are the doggies in the last photo?

Thanks. I am still a cat-person, but she is just too cute resist, and it is not possible to take bad pictures of her Tongue

Not knowing anything about the place, I guess birds are a rare occurance there? What's the altitude?

A few images from the weekend... a quite impressive display of Capoeira on Sydney's Pitt St Mall:



And, of course, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Blondgecko, what is "Capoeira"? A martial art or dance? Looks very acrobatic.

Pico23, that walking stick is way cool. We don't have those in California (maybe we do, and I just haven't seen them!). How long is that specimen?

he was probably almost 6inches long.

i've only seen about two in my life, one on the Caney Creek backpacking trip, and one I don't remember where.

They are rare, or at least so well camoflaouged that they aren't often seen.

What is more rare these days, something I used to see all the time as a kid, are Praying Mantis. I used to keep them as pets. Now I've went maybe 8 years without seeing one. Same with grasshoppers, although I see them frequently, they are not in the same quantity as even 10 years ago.

Balanophyllia elegans, one of the few corals on the California coast. It's a solitary coral that doesn't form reefs. This specimen is about 1/2 inch wide.

This is a beautiful little 1 inch long sea slug from the California coast. It feeds on animals related to sea anemones which have stinging cells for defense. For some reason the stinging cells don't explode when Hermissenda feeds on them. Instead the stinging cells migrate to those colorful plumes which you see on the back of the sea slug. There, the stinging cells become part of Hermissenda's arsenal of defense.

Your science oddity of the day!

 mntlhuricane,
Those B&W's are beautiful. Are you going to post some climbing shots also?

A few from my 12 week post op visit to Manhattan. Monday March 5th. Exactly a year after I took a 600ft fall in under 15 seconds.

Not the best weather. Actually typical March in the Northeast.

Rain, snow, sleet, gusty winds, some warm sun, dreary, nice sunset from the express bus, then brutally cold at night. When I got off the train in PoK it was below 0F.

pico23,
Thanks!
I used a Nikonos I with extension tubes on a 35mm lens and a wire frame for focus and composition. I think the magnification was 1:1 or perhaps greater.

The film used was Kodachrome.

It was lit with a handheld Honeywell Stobonar 600 (one of the original potato masher strobes) in a cast aluminum flash housing. The housing was made by the Anchor Shack, which later grew into Oceanic Products.

I'll post another one in a bit which I just recently found in a shoe box (as were these!)

Thanks Paul. My camera is a Panasonic FZ50 and I used a Raynox DCR 150 macro lens with the zoom at the max telephoto setting. The light is a desk lamp nothing special. I found the ladybug at night so I went outside and plucked a leaf off of the tree to give a more "natural environment".
