    Gipper I love that view. Have been to the Top of the Rock several times. An old one from me.

    @pippigirl. I have no idea, sorry. The presenters at the centre we went to only spoke French. Unfortunately my French is not good enough to understand everything they said. What I do know from talking to someone that did shows in the UK, is that it is a transmitter in case the bird doesn't come back one day. They can then track it down and bring it back to the centre.

    Unusual tree bark.

    @ Spraynpray......I'm with you up to going to PAD: Can't find any "reply"; hope this is it.
    This red macaw was taken with an F 5 & Fuji Velvia, than scanned and digitized a few years later; the "virtual frame" was my first attempt using gradients with photos; if you really like red, you may like it;

    @TheGipper- Nice and sharp! I love the orange reflection off of the river
    @proudgeek- awesome detail!
    @obajoba-the contrast is amazing and the site you chose was perfect to catch the evening? sun reflection. Superb shot!

    @Gitzo- I think that the red border really compliments the Macaw. I always loved shooting with Velvia. My Mamyia NC1000 loved it.

    Hey Gitzo - well done and welcome!
    Always learning.

    Lol, and LMAO ! After all of that, and the dumb thing comes up as a thumbnail ! So now I suppose I'll have to figure out how to make the next one about 4 time bigger.

    @ Dredden.......Thanks! It would look a lot better if it was a little bigger; when I tried to get one up last night, the sizes in the little box were bigger; I couldn't figure any way to get a bigger size to come up. Will try another one after midnight; ( hint; it's a photo I took of "Count Dracula")

    @ spraynpray......Thanks a lot ! At this point, the biggest mystery of all is, how did I ever manage to get that picture of the woodpecker on here ? I think my memory must work backwards; I can remember things that happened in WW 2 just fine, but I can't remember how I did something 3 days ago.

    @ donaldejose........I think it's a sycamore tree; I have 4 great big one right behind my house; I think those little round rust colored things are some kind of blight; I haven't seen any of that on our trees. My wife just tole me yesterday that the sycamore is the "Indiana State Tree"; I said, "oh really? that must be be why Indiana State University in Terre Haute (25 miles away) calls it's sports teams "The Sycamores"! ( I think she was unaware of the fact )

    Lovely city scapes :)

    Mike, thanks! A very opportune shot.
    @dizzent, you got a mythical creature in an image there ha
    Don't try, don't know, so I keep trying.

    Unfortunately for my place in scientific history, the mystery of the unicorn bird has been solved.

    Ready for Spring 5c

    Guess I'll have to keep my day job. So who wants my place on the lecture circuit?

    Very nice pics upthread, y'all.

    Today's pict is an old one. Korean War Memorial in DC. Actually took it twice. Years ago with an pre-DSLR Nikon...then here (in 2009) with a D80. I like how the flash's light helps the images disappear into the distance, a just statement of how our memory of those fallen often fades.

    If you're referring to the city buildings with the bending road, that wasn't my shot but obajoba's My guess is LA, although I haven't been there for a while.

    Well, never say you've heard it all. I was shooting this event today for them and their VP came over after 3 hours of shooting and told me I had to pay them, seriously. LOL I refused and left, hope they aren't wanting their pictures.
