    Kind of art, so last tuesday, I was biking and I saw some large fish trapped in a pool of water. After calling animal control and the fish and game dept, both would do nothing, I came back on Thursday to see how they were.



    Then, I came back on Sunday and they were back to being confined to their pond.


    Back to their pond.

    George, that's beautiful. And kids, Mr. Robin is just sleeping.
    One of the best pieces of advice I've ever had from a professional photographer was to take lots of photos and be very self critical. This fellow said he might take one, two, or more rolls of film (this was back in the film days), just to get a single shot - but his single shots ended up on the cover National Geographic.

    Some photography, but nothing especially good.

    I used to draw, haven't in a long time. Don't have a scanner handy to scan any of it though.

    You got the 7, but I don't see the 8th; it wasn't intended if there is one.

    Very nice. I like the expressions, conformations, and background detail.

    Very nice, indeed.

    This one is not great in its artistic value, but it may be a bird you've never seen. Do you recognize the not-so-common one?

    Sorry. It appears blank because you are at the far left edge when it goes to zoom. This region is white. Move the scroll bars to the center for a heck of a zoom -- much more than I had expected.

    Very nice indeed! It looks professional.

    This is a model of a ship that I designed for the BSG Universe:

    Gryphon Mk.I

    It was deployed in large numbers during the first Cylon War as a ground attack craft, equipped with both heavy cannons and air to ground missiles as well as air to air missiles. To keep the weight of the ships down, some were ordered from the factory without paint, just the standard heat-resistant coating given to all colonial space vehicles was applied to the bare metal skin. This did lead to some confusion among colonial pilots, due to the fact that Cylon ships were normally shiny instead of their own. After the war, most were scrapped. A few wound in museums, one actually became a piece of playground equipment at a park on Gemenon.

    George those birds are beautiful, I don't recognise either , the red one looks like some kind of crested finch and the other looks like a bee eater or something! I just don't know, but a great pic thanks.

    Thanks Mak.

    Gemini the rocket is cool, can I ask you are you the Touched or the Untouched/ Broca divide. been meaning to ask you this ages ago from your gate address.

    The red one is a Cardinal, common in central Texas. I don't recognize the other one.

    Kaptain K and chrissy,

    Yes, it is a male Cardinal. The other is a Green Jay and they are found in northern South America, north and south Central America, and southern North America. I've never seen one in or around San Antonio -- too far north. This was taken 100 km south of town.

    The Green Jay is, reportedly, all over the southern region of Texas, we call the Valley.

    There were three of these Green Jays and they seemed to enjoy the Cardinals.

    here are some more from the series.
    the last one with the snowmen was made way back in the late 80's with my best friend and his camera on a snowy day where we only got like 3 inches of snow and we were to lazy to make big snow men. I believe it was inspired by a Calvin and Hobbs comic strip.

    I agree, this might be something rather novel and, perhaps, marketable -- not that I would know.

    maybe one was too large in kb. so it didn't upload, the most you can upload at one time is 8, try it again and see if there is a notice of it being too large or you might not have uploaded it properly!
    the pics are great the snowmen remind me of what my son and his mate did while on guard duty earlier this year, I will try and get it off him and put it on here.
