Peter, what I prefer is just one random shot in this thread

See page 1:

Just to recap what this thread is about: there are only three simple rules that must be fulfilled to post a photo in here:

  • The photo you post must be selected from your gallery in a random way (or pseudo-random - if there are some computing purists around ). Use your calculator, or computer to generate some pseudo-random number. Or use dice or results of your national lottery, or whatever ...
  • The first shot selected must be posted, i.e. no cheating is allowed because e.g. "that first photos was so awful"
  • No more than one photo per day is allowed.


Of course all are encouraged to comment others work and discuss various aspects of posted photos.


To answer your questions:
- Leave out the cigarettes in the first and you're close to mine
- For the second the fruits are healthier, but the sweets are more to my liking
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

@pauljg - I believe that is a wasp instead of a bee. The skinny legs, leaner body, and wings laid back as opposed to spread out all indicate wasp. The hairs are restricted to the back, instead of the whole body. My guess is that it is the european wasp.
Thank you for the kind comment on my geese picture. We are getting ready for the geese to start their new broods for this year.

Here's my one random photo for today, from May 2011:

Off they go by p_man random, on Flickr
Sony A200 | 1/60 | f/5.6 | 70 mm on 18-70 kit | ISO 200
My wife at the start of the Buffalo Half Marathon. Can you guess which one she is? I tried to bring her out in post-processing without being too obvious.

Is she the one with her hand up in the air, looks like she's waving, wearing pink shorts and a white tank top?

Got it in one. I made it pretty easy. Besides her wave, I also brightened her slightly and applied some selective sharpening.

pauljg, nice shot, a pity the dof is quite small but still worthwhile.
p_man, the attention worked well there.

Well seen and caught Pegelli! Sheep, like dolphins and some breeds of dogs, have a natural "smile" to their faces. Your contrary sheep has more of a knowing smirk.

From November, 2011:

raise the bridge by p_man random, on Flickr
Sony A200 | 1/320 | f/9.0 | 40 mm on 18-70 kit | ISO 400
The bottleneck of Buffalo for railroads. There are only two crossings over the Buffalo River in it's navigable reaches. There used to be three, but one of the two bridges you see is out of service and is always in the up position. There is one more behind us in this view. The bridge is up to let the dredging barge through. It is approaching us from the other side of the bridge.

Thanks for looking.

You are certainly right, my knowledge of insects is even more rudimentary than their larvae
