looks to me like he's got a pretty good grip on Fez...

Unwinding him before I let him go was mildly interesting... When it's a Black or Green mamba or a Forest cobra life gets really interesting!

 

I thought they were very poisonous.Life threatening.

 

Yes they are. The black mamba is the most venomous snake in Africa, and the most aggressive. Depending on where you are bitten and how much venom they inject (they can control it), it can take from 30 minutes to an hour to die (not always, many people survive because of prompt attention to the bite).

Would anyone be willing to teach me how to attach pictures? :)

Oh honey I am a major novice when it comes to computers but all I do is copy image and then paste.I search with Google Chrome and I think it makes a difference which search you use.There are several people on here who can help you.You might go over to the Tech forum and maybe they can help.

Stopped by the road to take this sunset.

As I was taking many pictures the clouds were changing shape. My last photo was this one. I was too much in awe, of the face, to take anymore snapshots.

haven't posted here for a while.....            This is a long exposure of a fireplace that had one of those popping flairs while the shutter was open.

Quite by accident but it looked pretty cool.

I just discovered I still have server access to one of my websites that has been offline for years, and found this pic I uploaded in March of 2009. Was able to get pretty close, as she was not willing to abandon her nest:

Well, this formerly nice thread is so gutted, I thought that I would add a few things to make it visually appealing again. I do not want to monopolize it though, and my pics arent the best, so, others, be sure and contribute!

This one, is not that special, just a view looking south from my back balcony. The desert sure isn't the prettiest, but we get quite a few cloudy skies to add interest.

Along the same line, not outstanding, but interesting clouds. In this case, I am standing in the street, looking North. this is a very wide angle view. To the right, you can see the white top of my ambulance, sitting in the driveway of my home. On the left side of the picture, you can see a house and a garage door, that is the same garage that the ambulance is sitting in front of. So, the picture is so wide, you can see all 6 homes on our cul-du-sac at the same time, but it is the clouds, that are the subject of the picture.

Clicking on the pictures, should bring you a somewhat larger image.

What I think is neat, is how well made an tidy, tightly constructed, that nest is. If you look at it, you might recognize, that she made the nest of dryer lint of something - human fabric materials largely, a pretty good choice, much better for her tender hatch-lings that scratchy dead weeds I think. Now, consider her beak! She does not have the dexterity that we have with our 8 fingers and two thumbs, or 10 thumbs in mt case. If I wanted to see what it is like, to be in her state, I would have to get a pair of tweezers. Just imagine, making that nest out of pieces of scrap material, threads and lint, using just a pair of tweezers!
