pencil swarf

Hi Gang! Cool detail from a single pencil sharpener. You know, the ones we used in first grade. Hold the sharpener in one hand, then twist the pencil to get a type of "flower" shaving. Interesting to see the color variations in the grain of the wood and the seam where it was glued. Mike 2023-01-25-1...

Re: Snake Shed

Hi

I am pretty sure it is the zoom 6000
I have it attached to a Nikon F mount

I set my image size to DX as it is not designed for an fx footprint

Snake Shed

Howdy Gang!!!

Picked up this shed and everything was in great condition. You can even see the eye caps!
I believe it is a Florida Black Snake.

Re: Tale of two pots

Hi there

The photos show the pots 90 degrees off. The way the photo is showing the "bottom"
that is the part that was attached to the screen, so the black mud entry and exit holes
are directly across from one another.

Sadly, I waited for them to hatch before I removed the pots.
However, I just inspected the pot without the black mud, and
there were "remains" inside, as it never hatched.

The other pot has a large exit hole opposite the black mud.

Tale of two pots

Hi Gang A potter wasp decided to create two pots for her eggs. She created them on the screen of my porch, and I decided to let them take their time and hatch. I gently removed the pots and created this shot. What is interesting is the black "patch" on the left pot. I have never seen this, as the wa...
