    That last pic is like a herd of friendly balloons migrating to their home, the sky.

    Greta,
    Where did you take your balloon pictures posted above? I absolutely love the mountains in the background in your second picture from the top. Is that Lake Mead? Wherever it is, it is just beautiful.

    Lake Havasu City... on the Colorado River. It was our 2nd Annual Balloon Fest. I found out at 7:30 AM that the mass ascension was at 8:00 AM so I threw on jeans and a sweatshirt, stuffed my hair under a ball cap and ran down to the beach hoping no one would recognize me looking like such a transient... LOL It was my 50th birthday so I was very pleased to have so many beautiful balloons for my birthday... Yes, the back-drop was stunning!!

    "Jim White Tunnel"
    We spent the day there last year. I do no recall the colors you have in your pictures. I took lots of pictures using a flash, most of the colors shown are shades of white to grey
    Now I can see the darkness .

    The caverns were dimly lit. I did not bring in a tripod and hand held long exposures were not possible. I am sure I drowned out the colors with the flash. Your pictures are really great....

    next time I am there - remember - bring a tripod..
    Now I can see the darkness .

    I live in San Bruno, where the big gas line explosion happened about 1/2 mile from me. Here is one I snapped from my drive way of the sun setting through the heat shimmer from the fire.

    Tarsiers. They are now endangered. Cat, eagle often mistaken them as a mouse that's why they make them as a prey. .

    Hey, nice thread.

    I have been a hobby photographer for about 10 years now. My favourite subject is nature. I'm an avid nature lover.
    These pictures below might show that:


    One of my favorite pictures of flowers.


    Big dragonfly that didn't fly off at my first movement.


    Newborn goat.


    Spring captured in a picture. Soon to be featured again in the Northern Hemisphere.


    This kangaroo was taking a nap in the spring sun.


    Sometimes people can be nice subjects too:


    Dancing African masks.


    Medieval leatherworker.


    Lady in a beautiful medieval dress.


    Staring out across the sea...

    This last picture might not be that special, but the lady is... At least to me.


    My grandmother at her 100th birthday.

    She's still healthy. Only her hearing got worse the last years, her mind is still clear.
    She still loves to take a walk in the sun.

    I'm 45 years old, and still have a grandmother.

    No offense about those ants vs. wasp pictures here, but amazement. WoW!

    I can only dream of having a macro setup like that. It's way too expensive for me...

    I am nothing but an amateur photographer with a cell phone and no money... But here is some of what I have.






















    And of course I had to put one with a flashlight...

    Thanks, I saw this while out in the garden. Couldnt believe that these ants were actually dragging this wasp around ! Trying to capture the world through the macro lens can be very frustrating at times but rewarding when it goes to plan

    This is by no means any kind of example of the quality of my photo skills... but it's still one of the coolest photos I've ever taken!

    I rescued this little guy from a co workers desk. We were trying to figure out how it got there since we are on the 5th floor and at least 150 feet from the nearest door/elevator. I brought him home and let him go in my yard, snapping a few pics while he was checking out the new digs. He was only about 1/4 inch total length.
