Very nice country scenics, Chuy. Perfect composition - excellent focus. A pleasure to view.

Beaver (Castoridae)
Murfree Spring Wetland, Murfreesboro TN
1/100 sec - f/8.0 - ISO 1250

Interesting Tidbit: Beavers use swimming goggles too! They possess a set of
transparent eyelids which enable them to see under water. Beavers are second
only to humans in their ability to manipulate their environment – the largest
dam in existence is located in Wood Buffalo National Park, Alberta, Canada.
It stretches for 850m, and is visible from space. ~One Kind Planet~

Look at that smilin' face - is that cute or what?! A great capture, Mike!

A fun and fulfilling dinner with friends.

It's not very nice of you to show the plateful of yummy food I can't eat. Never-the-less, thank you for sharing these fine captures, Dannie.

I think the cute little otters would show up better if you did some cropping. Thank you for sharing these images, Chief.

Nothing boring about Byron Center. My wife is in a memory center and they post pictures of art the residents have created. I hope they honor yours in Minnesota.

I show them to the residents here at the Manor and have given several away. I've been painting stones and will post some in the near future. It's Byron Center, MICHIGAN.

Hey, Annie! Great imagination and good sense of humor, especially since you're using only what's at hand. You're obviously not a grumpy person! I think that you might drop a hint for a birthday present--have someone buy you a rock tumbler! It takes a while but the rocks will be polished and the colors a little more pronounced. Then your flowers and vases would be very "pretty". By the way--the turtle is great (he needs a name painted on his back) but the hedgehog is really cute. What did you use for his "face"? -- Jackie

Thank you for the great response, Jackie. I've been painting polished stones and will be posting some in the near future. The hedgehog is a figurine - I didn't paint its face.

I find pebbles on the beach that have been pierced by the Nautilus Worm (ships worm on wooden boats) I thread them on wire or balance them as standing stones. Often I see mussel shells with holes in them placed upon driftwood (as leaves on a tree). It seems that a few of us are facinated with the intracasies of natural stone.

My father used to polish pebbles using carbarundum powder in water inside a revolving drum, it creates a shine. He would mount the smaller pieces to make tie pins or cuff links. The larger pieces simply made paperweights. (there was a phase in the 1970's of having 'pet rocks' too.....

Sometimes the small things make us happy - hence Macro...

Have fun

I enjoyed your very interesting story, G Brown. I have been painting polished stones with acrylic paint and intend to post them in the near future. I remember the 'pet rock' craze of the 70's. Majestic mountains are impressive, but as you mentioned, sometimes the small things make us happy. Have you ever posted some of your pebbles that were pierced by the Nautilus Worm that you threaded on wire or balanced as standing stones? I'd like to see them. Thank you for this pleasing response!

Very creative! Why can't I think of stuff like that.

You just need to be a little goofy to think of stuff like creating with pebbles. Thank you, Rhett, for viewing my post. I appreciate your response.

An excellent creative way to take advantage of what is at hand! I love the flower pot with the pretty blue flowers and the mini scape of pebble at the base of a tree. Well done.

Thank you, Carol. It's always nice and is appreciated to have fellow hogs view my posts and give nice comments.

Super Creative. Glue them down to a black mat board and frame them and sell them.

Thanks, Stan - I appreciate your response. I haven't the foggiest idea how to glue them to a black mat board but would really like to make money on some of my creative work.

Ha ha, very cute. But more to the point, very artistically thought out.

It pleased me to get such a nice reply to my post, torchman. I have been painting stones and plan on posting them in the near future. A fun new hobby.
