    What's the trick to posting a photo here? My images don't have urls

    Select the option Hotlink for forums

    Sometimes the link adds an advertisement. If this happens, just delete the url for the advertisement.

    The upload page looks like this...

    Thanks, but it's more effort than I really want to put forth to share pics,

    Beautiful!
    I am able to click on the image and it enlarges it and one can really hone in on those details.

    I have been playing with use of extension tubes between the Nikon zoom lens and Nikon body to increase effective magnification for close-ups. Easy to use/seem to work well, but they change the effective depth of field so I have to relearn what F-stop settings get me good depth of focus without killing my required shutter speed. In this case I was about 4 inches from the insect, as I recall.

    I recall someone mentioned in one of the forums that the strip is still being produced but is only available online. It may be on this website: https://www.berkeleybreathed.com/ which is under re-construction right now so I'm just guessing, but if you click on the Facebook link at the bottom it looks like a new strip is produced there daily(?). The Instagram link seems to be a different arrangement but I didn't look downward.

    I miss Bloom County too, and I had forgotten about that other forum posting until now so since I looked it up just now I may start reading the strip again. Opus is my hero! :grin:

    I read Flawed Dogs because, well, Berkeley Breathed wrote and illustrated it. Thanks for posting the link! I'll bookmark that and check back with my daily Gary Larson feed.
    But this is off topic for an Off Topic forum; I'd better post a photo soon!

    As promised.
    This is the view (Okay, part of the view) from my back yard. When we first moved in I was not thrilled with having wetlands (AKA: swamp) in our back yard, but then the red-winged blackbirds came, and come every summer. Their song lifts my spirit and cheers my soul.
    In the winter the cattails rest, and wait...

    Oddly they are not bad. I was very concerned about that myself and we bought a "Mosquito Magnet" which works quite well when you have the right scent, but we seldom need to deploy it.

    great pic....it has been years since I have been out in freezing cold, but I can hear that frozen vegetation crunching underfoot just by looking at your pic.
