I couldn't let another day go without a post, although it seems to be getting more and more common. I'm afraid this sub-forum is "doomed" (to use Dilbert's phrase).

While at the battleship, I observed this pair of dragonflies in a small pond. The female is laying her eggs, the male is holding on to her head in case she gets too far in the water, he can pull her out.



I'm off tomorrow to Jacksonville, Fla for a few days.

Great photo Don.

I have to agree with you - we're right at the "use it or lose it" stage for this (and other subfora). Come on folks - if you enjoy the Photography forum and its subfora, you must start posting. Otherwise the powers that be will remove them for such dismally low participation.

Don,
Your photo is very clear.
I am glad that you explained the postures of the dragonflies, very interesting.

That is an exquisite capture, Don.

I agree that this sub forum has a very low participation rate.

That is a pity because we have one of the best mods of any forum to which I have contributed, and who works extremely hard to keep it alive.

Presently I've been editing hundreds of Sydney pics that no doubt you are sick of seeing, but anyway, here's one more taken on the harbour at Watsons Bay.

I absolutely agree with that. Many thanks, dear moderator.

Don, that is an amazing shot! Your patience has paid off! Have a fun trip, too!!
Mark, that's an excellent waterfront landscape! Love the colors.

Went fishing with my brother on Tuesday....caught a bunch of undersized fish, great fun! and finally caught 4 keeper rockfish (striped bass) and 5 big catfish! Fish for dinner this week for sure!



And thanks to our moderators....it's sometimes a thankless job, but we appreciate all the work.

Lovely skyscape mirrored in the lake Natalie.
WC simply has way too many forums and sub forums.

Aw, thank you very much. Those " thank you's" go a long way.
If it weren't for you, then Ray(Oldthumbs) or I wouldn't have a job.

Natalie and Mark, your seascape photos are beautiful but quite different.

Mark's scene is one of movement and activity, where Natalie's is calm and relaxing. You both captured the moment expertly.

Mark, I like how the sailboats seemed to split to make a path directly to the Sydney skyline. I really love the birds in the foreground and colors in the water.

Natalie, As Mark mentioned, the reflection of the clouds is what this photo is all about. I could see you on your boat and seeing it with your own two eyes, thinking, this is just so beautiful.

PS.
Mark, I am really enjoying your photos from your trip to Sydney. Isn't that one of reasons why we take photos? To show others, the things that made us pick up the camera in the first place because we thought the sight was so interesting, beautiful, exciting, thrilling, etc.? I'll never get to Sydney, so thanks for making me happy.

Hi Lorell, it's me, 'Greenhill', "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet", so wrote Shakespeare!

WC's periodic login caused a headache, as you see it has changed my User Name, one than I have never used. So firstly, can you change it back to "Greenhill' for me please.

And thank you for your kind comments on the "Welcome Aboard" thread.
I am about to post another on the main page, not so pretty as the seascape but poignant nonetheless, I think.
