    You're absolutely right, usually I'm the most concerned about gun safety in the group, but in that particular public event we were carrying unloaded toy guns and pulling the trigger during the photos looked more bad ass

    I think I saw that shot in the background on a recent episode of Prototype This on the Discovery Channel. Is there an old factory located on the left bank there?

    Aha, thanks. I caught a promo last night where they mentioned Treasure Island, so that must be the place.

    Wonder why this reads
    {arrow}
    LANE
    BIKE

    instead of

    {arrow}
    BIKE
    LANE

    I know this isn't a simple mistake by the city worker who painted this, because I've seen this multiple times in multiple cities.

    Makes sense to me....read the words as you approach them.

    Around here they just paint a picture of a bicycle in the bike lanes.

    One of the wonders of living in the tropics... hummingbirds!

    This little fellow got inside our house and couldn't get out. We tried to coax him towards open doors and windows but nothing worked.

    He finally dropped on the floor and wouldn't move. He wouldn't even open his eyes and I could barely see him breathing. Hummingbirds need amazing amounts of energy to survive, so I suspected this poor guy must've exhausted most (if not all) of his reserves.

    Remembering a tip from an ornithologist friend of mine, I quickly prepared an oversaturated solution of sugar water and started "force-feeding" it to the hummingbird. At first, the poor thing wouldn't even open its beak, but slowly it started sipping from the syringe. Slooooowly but surely it started opening its eyes, and then, in the blink of an eye, it flew away! He was sipping sugar water for a good 5-10 minutes before flying away.

    I leave you with a pic of this beautiful bird:

    The picture's pretty lousy, but the subject, a Pileated Woodpecker, is a rare sight around here. At least I haven't seen many. I took this handheld at full zoom (5x optical x 5x digital), so sharpness wasn't really expected.



    I hadn't seen this bird before I heard it hammering on a tree. The sound is characteristically louder and deeper than that of other woodpeckers in this area. Hope it sticks around.

    The same "punkin patch" (pumpkin patch) I photographed just prior to Halloween 2008 and again on the morning of 11-18-08.
    Guess somebody went "pumpkin smashing" (a popular Halloween prank) almost a month too late. .
    This photograph was taken on the morning of 11-28-08.
