"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."
Typical one is "Stop Ahead".
If it was spelled:
You would see stop after you drove over "Ahead".
I received this one in an Email. I therefore do not know who the author is (most likely editor), but being distributed widely there should be no copyright issues.
If a person is doing something very dangerous we have a saying in South-Africa: "Jy speel met die leeu se bal" (You are playing with the nuts of a lion). Original pic reduced to comply with CPF size restriction.
Took a short hike today locally. Was down along a creek away from the trails and bike paths and flushed a big bird who landed still in sight. Scoped it out and found an owl. Racked out the camera as far as I could. I'm pretty sure it's a Barred Owl. It's a rare sighting for me, though I hear them at night regularly.
Here's a little chameleon that was hanging around our yard. The neat part is it used to get on my vehicles and he'd be hard to get off. So one time I decided to leave him on as I needed to get to the hardware store. I drove all the way there watching him on the front of the vehicle. When I got there I went in to buy some lumber and then drove into the inside yard where you pick up lumber and he was still on but had now moved onto the roof. I carefully placed some long lumber on the roof rack so as not to squish him and when I got back home he was still there! Unfortunately one time he took a trip to the Post Office with me on another vehicle but decided to get off in some bushes there and I haven't seen him since.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have
Yeah, but you shoulda' told him to "Smile", also !
Good eye! Yes, it sure is. He was leisurely tearing off bits of it and eating during the time I stood there. The keeper stated that the owl would eat 8-10 mice per day. One interesting fact was when the keeper lifted the owl on his gloved hand and caused it to flap it's wings. There was absolutely now sound at all...not even the sound of feathers touching one another. It was strange to stand 4 feet away and not to hear anything from beating wings. Amazing!
Here is a pic of him eating but because of the motion it's blurred slightly.
That's a Coopers Hawk behind the owl. It had its left shoulder amputated due to an injury in the wild. Sad to think that it can't fly anymore but as least it was rescued by a kind person. There was also a Peregrine Falcon there too but the picture was also blurred so I didn't post it.
As we're showing off birds, I'll play
