Re: Phone tests

I have the Motorola Droid Turbo. The dang thing has a 21megapixel camera on it. More than double my DSLR. It takes nice pictures, but I haven't tried fly pics, yet. Maybe later tonight, just for a test. Looking at what you posted, the macro lenses may be gilding the lily. Those are some nice shots. ...

Re: Shakey Bealy Isonychia

Sorry about that, folks. The photo came up clear as a bell when I did the "Preview" option before submitting the post. Don't know what the deal is with Google+ now. Jeez, always something ...

Re: Hadn't seen this winging technique before.

His accent was so bad, I had to just turn the sound off. :lol:
Interesting technique. I've never been able to get the wings to set properly. Of course, I gave up after the frustration got too bad. When I run across my turkey feathers again (I don't have duck) I'll give this a try.

Re: March brown, Yorkshire style (maybe)!

Dave, We had the same sort of year, not quite as bad, here in Southeast Texas. Things finally dried out in July. We are currently sitting at 35" (89 cm) of rain for the year. Of course, now the temps are in the 97 to 105 deg F range! :lol: September is normally our wettest month. If I start gurgling...

Re: A Local Favorite...

Looks good, Doug. As usual, I'll have to sub out materials, lol, but I am pretty sure I can get close. If I come up with something good enough to photograph, I'll post it up. As for getting it wet, it may be a while. TS Bill just gave us a little more water to run off. :lol: This is the Stream Gage ...

Re: Pheasant Tail Spider (Almost)
