Poor fella. Insects have no respect.

K-3 and DA 18-135

Bird Watcher (BW) Bear got an early start on the mushroom season this year. We've had such a cold wet June, the woods have mushrooms we usually don't see until October and November.

It's raining all day, so the pseudo macro 1:3.3 of the DA 18-135 had to fill in for the Sigma 70 macro I usually use, just for it's water resistance.





You never know what you'll find in the woods....



Someone thinks this one is good to eat... hope they didn't get sick...







If this keeps up BW will be bringing his friend Moose out for a big tour of the shrooms.

They always have so much fun together.

Supposed to be intimidating, not silly.

That was very enjoyable, Norm. A lot of fun and that is what photography is all about. We sometimes take it much too seriously.

Kengoh - Awesome as usual.

Rondec - I spent Saturday and Sunday driving from Bismarck, ND to Rochester, NY. There was evidence of way too much rain along the whole route. A lot of northwest Ohio was under water too. Too bad we can't send some of it to California.

Normhead - Cute series. I see a Shutterfly children's book in those photos.

Who knew the FA 31 doubles as a macro lens too?

90% of California's problems are self inflicted. I have no empathy for the land of "Fruits & Nuts"

In the late 90's my daughter was about to attend CalPoly at San Luis Obispo and we were attending a parent/student orientation. Many students going into agriculture, inheriting family farms, attend CPSLO. I struck up a conversation about water with a parent who owned a vege farm in the Central Valley. I observed that CA was expanding beyond what water was reasonably available. His attitude: the state will supply the water because that's what the state government is elected to do. My suggestion that there might not be any water they could get to meet the demand had no impact. His was ironclad fixed in the belief that the Ca state government WOULD supply whatever water was needed by agriculture: the state government would just go and do it because that was their job. I was flabbergasted, and moved away to talk to someone else.

Frightening numbers of people are ferociously determined to believe anything other than the truth.

Sapsan - Like this one. I really like the use of flowers to cover what could be a boring wall. Further the model and the background have a youthful and springing feeling. The skirt is okay but green might have been nicer.

Nicely done.

Thank you for comment, John - very pleasing. Wanted to clarify, what green you meant?

Not sure, just a thought.
