Saw this at the swap meet in Escondido and thought it was interesting.

F 50/1.7 500/sec @ 6.7



And this one the size of a dime at the beach

90mm 2.8 Macro 350/sec @ 5.6



One more item from the beach, my daughter that lives in Del Mar

Must resist... must resist... can't help myself...

"A customer enters a pet shop.

Mr. Praline: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.

(The owner does not respond.)

Mr. Praline: 'Ello, Miss?

Owner: What do you mean "miss"?

Mr. Praline: I'm sorry, I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint!

Owner: We're closin' for lunch.

Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this parrot what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.

Owner: Oh yes, the, uh, the Norwegian Blue...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?

Mr. Praline: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it! "

Back in control... won't finish sketch... Sorry...

A parrot, and it is blue, how could any self respecting Monty Python fan resist. Lucky thing the second picture wasn't a slug:lol:.

People bring the strangest things to swap meets don't they?

You mean like this Sea Hare I found in a tide pool?

A swap meet is where people take items they no longer want and try to sell them to others, and the bird was very expensive.

The had many types of birds there, including some fighting chickens.

Cool shots Tom. I need to head out to our local tide pools and take some shots. Did you use a polarizer filter to cut down on the reflected light?
