Chewing the Bone

This big guy is practicing the strange art of osteophagy (the eating of bones). He's doing this to add minerals such as calcium and phosphorus to his diet.

How I Love the Insects

Back to Valley Forge with the Macro Lens and oh the little critters just could not stop posing!!  Here are a few from the last two days.  (Click photo to get a real look at those beautiful features.)

Cicada Killer Wasp in Staring Contest - Actually took this one with the 600mm  lens plus an 1.75 adapter.  These little guys are too shy to let me get close.

Back in Gear!!!

For those following the saga of my crashed external hard drive with all of the Namibian photographs, life has returned.  I spent most of the day yesterday with another wonderful 21 year old Indian man named Vinit Kumar who stayed on the line with me through thick and thin.  He was able to help me migrate all of the lost images onto yet another external hard drive and put all those images back in their proper storage files.    He also found that the scammer  had put some little virus type thing into my applications folder making my computer screen have a little funny light on it - like he was watching me. Mr. Kumar removed the virus and said not to talk to strangers ever again.  I am taking his advice and am so glad to be back in gear.
