Parallel, Part Two

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 210 is Parallelism. Consider this a double dip.

What did you say to the deer in Photo4, Thunder? Man, it looks shocked!
They are very nice photos.

Gilly said...

Oh I love those deer! No, they don't look shocked at all - just curious!

And the tadpoles are great! - you take some wonderful nature photos.

Put those pants back on now!

Those powerlines need floaters so the aircraft won't get snagged.

really cool parallelisms!

i have to say...the deer mom with her youngsters is a great shot...and the flowers with the little butterfly...and the ride down the river...
BUT the tadpoles all lined up is a perfect shot!!! i hope they grow some parallel legs soon....

Laura, those are three little deer...note that all three still have spots.

(I spotted mom later...)

Man, I LOVE the synchronized tadpole event!! Later, after you left, Thunder, they had the Pond Polo elimination matches. It was awesome...

Substance McGravitas said...

I thought those were natural-selection matches.

I always like your photos - it's always a pleasure when you put up a bunch. Are you sure those are Silver-spotteds, though? I'm used to seeing them look much larger, and hold their wings vertically like 'regular' butterflies instead of that '4-wing' angled position that the small skippers use. I'm no good at the little, skittery skippers, though, so I can't offer any alternative names.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

JohnR, the skippers I see most around here most are Silver-spotted or Firey.

You can't see the white spot on the hind wing to make a positive i.d., so judging from what I can see I picked Silver-spotted (unfortunately, I don't remember from when I took the photo).

Another possibility is Hoary Edge, Achalarus lyciades.

Start taking some shitty photos, you bastard.

The power lines is my favorite too.

I'm a little freaked out by all the UFO's in the moon picture, though. Seems like you kinda buried the lead there, thudner.

those deers are not parallel. Not at all.

Point of Order, Zombie Chairman!

Rita said...

Your frog shot is amazing. Tadpoles lined in a row, how often does that happen?

Love the deers and the water shot. In fact great captures all.

...for an extremely imprecise definition of 'parallel'.

I guess things are different in West Virginia. But then, they would be, wouldn't they?
