Strange one Ax, I assume some sort of caterpillar but the tail or is it the head looks like a snakes head. Would probably scare some of the birds away.

Morning Ax.

Mornin, Jeff

Didn't get the companion pic resized till this A.M.Will post today.
You are so close, and I'm not surprised, you'd win the blue ribbon.
It trips off , in my mind,as an aquaintance of mine, from Louisiana, used to say--"How 'dey do 'dat?"

Chuckle--Hope you have a good work day, and "Keep 'Em Flyin!"

Ax I will do my part to keep them from running into each other anyhow. I work on ground to air Comms mostly, also airfield lighting and landing aids. If my radios work then the Air traffic controllers can talk to everyone.

Jeff--If you look at my first pic on this thread , you will see a pic ( on the left side, of my best Friend(in Navy Dress), now gone--who did the same job as you.

I will as soon as the gardening season is over. I will get my digital out and really learn to use it. I can take ok pics but need to learn the finer points. I have a pretty nice Cannon the kids got me for Christmas. I haven't even sat down and read the book on it yet. It seems like there is always 20 other things that need to be done. This winter I will make myself concentrate on my pic taking. Maybe hitting you guys up for some advice.

Canon is good.
After reading your manual, you can, teach me some things--and happen upon an "Old"--35mm at a yard sale--then I am sure, someone here has an answer.:)

Morning Ax: My bats were out flying around this morning when I went out to leave for work. I always like watching them fascinating creatures. I need to look into bat houses.

I remember finding a fruit bat in my grandparents Apricot tree growing up, and getting to check one out fairly close up, while being careful not to disturb him too much.


Just checking in I need to go back and get to work have maintenance on FLOLS carts (fresnel lens optical landing system), a visual landing aide that tells the pilots if they are on the correct glidepath.

Jeff:)

Re: AX'S CORNER
 
Mornin ,Jeff

There are a few around here I love to watch them also.I wonder sometimes if some of our higher order radar hasn't incorporated bat radar, after all the Sidewinder AA missle.

There is a Fresnel lens out of a lighthouse at the Ft Morgan Museum, absolutely a marvel--very old also.

I flew an Su-27 simulator for a long time, the programs were written by ex-Russian pilots, and as close to reality as one can get.Take-offs etc were a piece of cake, on landing approach following the beam in and auto pilot a cake walk, till you got about 50ft off the deck, and then it disengages.

Bet I burned up a trillion Rubles before I finally got the knack---:)

Have a good work day, to post some items on Photo Thread.

Your offer to lend the Horseman looks better evey day.---Ax.

Ax: One of O's airplanes was down here a week or two ago. Dont know if Airforce 1 or 2. Doing testing at the EMP site here. The setup is supposed to simulate the electromagnetic pulse that is produced by a nuclear blast. Check to see effect on aircraft electronics.

On a similiar note I have a true story.

When Bill Clinton was in office he came down here to release a bald eagle back into the wild. Big PR deal with media coverage from local and DC stations.

Well Bill along with the DNR people opened the cage and let the eagle out. He had only been airborne for a few minutes when he was spotted by a pair of nesting Osprey's. The two Osprey dive-bombed the eagle and forced it to land.

At that moment someone came over the radio net that the secret service and base security personnel were on and annouinced "the eagle is down, the eagle is down."

As you can imagine the secret service about pissed themselves right then and there. The term eagle is often used as the codeword for the president.

Funny and true story.

Cool pics. I have a friend who gets pumpkins every fall and does some really creative stuff with them for Halloween. He calls them punk Heads. One year he had a bunch sitting out by the road with a for sale sign on them. I kept driving past them every day on my way to and from work and one day I got this funny idea. I stole two of them and then with the help of his girlfriend and another friend we came up with a hostage plot. We took pics of the pumpkins being held at gun point and typed up a real funny ransom note and I put it on his door. This went on for several weeks and many pics and notes. We even had to kill one of the punk heads so he knew we meant business and take a pic of the poor thing being sliced in half with a sword. The ransom was paid at the local bar and we dressed up in terrorist outfits and had chains wrapped around the remaining punk head. We had the whole bar in on it. The ransom was 2 cents. We all had a lot of fun with our kidnapping adventure. Amazing what one finds to amuse oneself when you live in a small town.

I think I have a pretty good excuse. I found 2 ransom notes in my microsoft works and when I went to open them they aren't there. I had my computer crash about 6 months ago and lost a whole bunch of stuff. There is a slight chance my husband put them on a disk. I will ask him when he gets home.

Ax: Hope you are having a good day Earl left some beautiful weather in its wake here, low 70's this morning with a nice breeze and low humidity. Feels like heaven after all of the hot humid stuff. I am taking a short break from grass cutting and general yard work catch-up. A great day to be outside today no matter what you do.

And if you want to give the horseman a try just PM me a shipping address and I will send it out to you. It came with a nice hard case so shipping is easy I just have to add a little padding box it up and send.

Thanks Ajla: I believe I have seen the whole thing at some time.

Makes you ponder the meaning a picture within the picture.

Perhaps one of the many little moments which make up ones life?

There are many vanitas paintings, or maybe they're known under another name?

It's just the vain artist I think, but I prefer the idea of the little moments which we should treasure if we can!

Do you use any filters when you take B&W?

I rarely use filters--maybe a polarizer every so often.
The film has a higher silver content in it than most--actually it's still made the way it was back in the 40's -50's.I'm running out of it--:(

On the Horseman, I did some footwork and $2.00 a pop from the looks of it.
I appreciate the offer of the loan, and would like to take a rain check--I feel bad about not taking you up on it.
About got my hat set for an Olympus EP-600--haven't bought myself a toy in a while--Left a couple more pics on Photo thread, and my results for the Jung test on Fritz's thread.--

Is this a test Ax.

It appears the metatarsals are fused toghether on the little toe and the next one over.

Or the fourth and fifth metatarsals are not seperate but joined

And yes good lenses are pricey especially the fast ones.

Not a test--chuckle-on the contrary-

Ax's Axiom:--

"Some gain cognizance of "I am here", others want to know --why-- am I here, and me--I rather tend to figure out where from and "For Out".

I missed the six toes but noticed the last two were connected. Two sets of eyes are better than one and two heads as long as they arent attached to the same body.:D

Thought about you, it began to rain about noon, had that fall chill in it--got a hot cup of soup and sat on the front porch--and watched it come down--then I nodded off---Chin Up--Ax.

Ax/Chick: You might like this.

Look, and it can't be seen.
Listen, and it can't be heard.
Reach, and it can't be grasped.

Above, it isn't bright.
Below, it isn't dark.
Seamless, unnamable,
it returns to the realm of nothing.
Form that includes all forms,
image without an image,
subtle, beyond all conception.

Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.
You can't know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Just realize where you come from;
this is the essence of wisdom.

From a translation of the words of Lao-tzu

Here is another one Quite riddle-like

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it liveable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.


Something to ponder Lao-tzu was the founder of Taoism, his writings are very similiar to those of Confuscious and some say one was a student of the other.
Translated from Chinese circa 500 B.C.

I love it too, glad i found the book.

The second one reminds me of a similisr concept in music and in art.

In music we soon realize that the silence between the notes or sounds is as important to the compisition as the sound is.

In art or photography we realize that the empty space is as important as the subject.

One compliments the other.

You need to get reading Chickie, you wont regret it.
