We thought this was a kid's toy in the yard until I started to pick it up. Turns out it was a Tersa Sphinx moth larvae:

Yeah, I deleted it from imageshack.
It was kinda out of place - I don't really have any real nice nature pictures like most have posted.

That Tersa Sphinx moth really does look like a toy - it's cute. I don't think we have them here.

Awesome close up of the dragonfly!!

Oh come on. Those quadruplets were adorable. This thread is for posting photos, not impressing anyone.

I'd like to try and get some nature ones.
Nature photos always look good. I'll try to get a kangaroo this afternoon!

I'm not seeing a black line around the fireworks. I did black out the lights on the cop cars that were on the street, as we were a few blocks from the show, and there were cops and cars on the street and it ruined the look of the dark black background of the fireworks. This was on the bottom of the photo. You may be seeing the remnants of my blacking out all other lights in the area. I'm not sure.

A raindrop among pondcypress needles (much easier to see than in my avatar). Hopefully Kindred and Darling Jen will be able to see this one.

I've been wondering what exactly your avatar was. I have a few neat raindrop pictures floating around somewhere I think. Yours looks a lot better than mine, but still, lol.

All the pictures are great! I'm really enjoying this. I used to do black and white photography in college. It was fun. I'd do it now if I had a darkroom.

Very nice, Shellz. As much as I love living where I do, sometimes I do wish I could live where birds of paradise can grow outside. Do you ever get kookaburras where you live?

Thanks.
Ahhh, it gets too cold there to have them outside?
I would have liked to get a picture of the Kangaroo Paw but unfortunately it's not in flower at the moment.

Yes we get Kookaburras. Don't know if he is the same one each time, but ocassionally one will be sitting on my clothes line pole.
They aren't as good at telling the weather as people think. They often lie....lol.

Actually, part of it is that it gets too cold for the birds of paradise, but I'm not sure it gets warm enough either (our average highs during summer are about 25 C and the average lows are about 12 C).

I love kookaburras- - all kingfishers, actually. I'd love it if I could see them more often. I hope you aren't inundated by galahs too frequently.

Ahhhh, we on average get around 32 C but can go up to 38 C in a hot spell. That's bad enough .... there has been 40 C in the past but that's killer temps.
And we get down to -2 C here over night in winter. But we have the Bird of Paradise up against the verandar so it's protected from frosts.

We actually get a lot of Cockatoos here at certain times of year and they get bored so to amuse themselves, they pluck the avocados off the trees.
We ocassionally get the rare black Cockatoos around this area too. We get some Galahs but they don't flock in mass groups like those distructive Cockatoos. Lol.

Is that a long exposure? The water looks strange.

And yes, it's beautiful.

I just love long exposures where everything is crisp and clear and water has a really soft fluffy look to it!

Thank you to each of you.

Yes, Kindred, that is a long exposure. I took this photo probably five years ago, so I can't tell you exactly how long it was, but probably on the order of 2-3 seconds. I personally like the lace veil effect on running water, so most of the photos I take of water is a long exposure. I do, on occasion, use an extremely short shutter speed (1/8000 sec. or so) to freeze breaking waves or the splash of running water.

dwtim, IIRC, you live in the UP of Michigan. There are some beautiful waterfalls there as well. I'm quite certain you could get some nice photos of them, if that's your thing.

This photo actually has a special meaning to be, albeit not for the best of reasons. Minutes before this was taken, I set down an expensive lens to switch to another and forgot to put it in my vest. When I finally realized it and went back, the lens was gone (suffice it to say, that will never happen to me again). To make matters worse, I broke my tripod scaling into this ravine to get this photo. I actually had to perch my camera on a log to get the photo you see. At least I got a nice photo out of it.

Yup, your right, I am a Upper. I grew up in Colorado though, nothing up here comes close to what I could find back there.

I have a few nice waterfall pic's, but they are on film. I have not taken any film pictures for about 10 years. I only have a digital camera now (somewhat cheap), and while it does have different settings it is hard to remember which is better for certain types of pictures.
