    So the illusion worked. There are about a dozen ICBM's under those Silo's.

    Better days? I do believe you're right. Still, all-in-all, not a bad place to be... well maybe not in Kansas.

    If it's flying normally it's harder but still doable.
    The problem is I can never get clear focus on the eyes.

    Green countryside of Cambodia. It can't get any greener, can it?
    The sugar palm is the symbol of the country. People extract juice, and make sugar out of sugar palm. It also gives fruits, but best of all it can be made into palm alcoholic drink.

    That sure is green Tim. I've never even heard of the Sugar Palm, thanks for the education.

    No D70Fan... not cocunut but sugar palm. They are different. Coconut is more common but sugar palm (Borassus flabellifer) is native only to South and SE Asia; and in SE Asia it's mainly Cambodia.
    Not intended to educate Dread...
    First time I went back was in 1995, and after 15 years in Australia I forgot how green it is over there, especially in the rainy season.

    Coconut, schmocunut... bring on the Cambodian grog mate. Yeah I know grog is rum.

    I don't know Tim. You might want to punch up the green and saturation a little.

    Safe at First!

    Got this shot at yesterday's Mem. Day game for our local Minor League team.
    Later in the game a friend I was with got hit during a similar play when the throw from the pitcher went over the First Baseman's head. As you can see we were in perfect line with the mound.

    It's Dragonfly time again!

    Went to the OTS Park pond today to look for dragonflies, got some nice shots.
    Here is one of them. Got some decent in-flight shots too, posting them later.
