havalotta,

Great photos. I *love* the frog. It would make a great avatar.

I was going to suggest that you should enter them into the POM--then I realized that was the thread I was viewing! Duh.

There are so many good places for that picture, but I know I can count on you to find the perfect spot for it.

Great shots, Bulu. That last one is wicked cool. (Don't know where that came from, but I think it fits.)

For sure.... I'll just need to sort and match things up is all. I've got a poem I've been sitting on waiting to find just the right Bald-faced hornets nest photo. Who knows.... maybe it might stop 1 kid from using a nest as a piñata.

Wasp Nest
by John Fuller

Be careful not to crush
This scalloped tenement:
Who knows what secrets
Winter has failed to find
Within its paper walls?

It is the universe
Looking entirely inwards,
A hanging lantern
Whose black light wriggles
Through innumerable chambers

Where hopes still sleep
In her furry pews,
The chewed dormitory
Of a forgotten tribe
That layered its wooden pearl.

It is a basket of memories,
A museum of dead work,
The spat Babel of summer
With a marvellous language
Of common endeavour.

Note: it is the fruit
Returning to the tree,
The world becoming a clock
For sleep, a matrix of pure
Energy, a book of many lives.

Isn't that a fantastic find!!!

It's the only shot I have of one. Kind of small, but thought perhaps it would do until you locate a better one?....
