And one of the few items (I know, it's not Photographic) but is a bigger lesson in Futility is.....
;D ;D ;D
I bet most of us have at least one Rubik's cube, hoping to crack it one day ... I probably bought at least 7 or 8 of them int he past 30 or more years ... but still haven't cracked it ... 10 seconds and I just give up. ;D

Many years ago shortly after they became popular, I got my 4 year old son, who I thought was a prodigy, a Rubik's cube for his birthday. After all the adults failed, I showed him how to work it and told him the goal was to make each side one color. He went to his room and came back 5 minutes later with it solved. We were all in disbelief. So I mixed it up again and gave it to him a second time. He comes back 5 minutes later with it solved again. Unbelievable. I asked him how he did it and he shows me that each of the colored squares was a stick on piece of paper which he meticulously pealed off and perfectly reapplied until the puzzle was solved. I guess there are several ways to skin a cat. ;D

Great shots everyone!

Here's one of my first attempts at birds. This little fellow (parus major) stopped by this morning.

Beautiful shot of a lovely bird. Well composed and great work.

Here's another from Israel.  This is the ancient city of Tiberius by night.  The body of water is the Sea of Galilee, or Lake Kenneret.

Beautiful

Another great shot Dustin. Nicely done.

Thanks, guys.  Here's another - a dawn shot over the Sea of Galilee:


Did you try walking on the water? :)

Yes, but I'm afraid I was more Peter than Jesus  ;D

These might have helped. ;D

This is a lifer to me.


Untitled  by alabang, on Flickr

The  Oriental Skylark (Alauda gulgula), also known as the Oriental Lark or  Small Skylark, is a species of skylark found in the Indian Subcontinent  and Southeast Asia. Like other skylarks, it is found in open grassland -  often near waterbodies - where it feeds on seeds and insects.

These  skylarks frequently rocket up into the sky, fluttering and singing  before descending down to earth. Male Oriental Skylarks may also hover  in the air and sing, in order to attract a mate.

Oriental  Skylarks are about 16 cm long. They have streaked, yellow-brown upper  plumage, with white outer tail feathers and a short crest. Both sexes  are similar.

Settings: 1/200 ƒ/9 ISO 160 800mm

Wow! Great shot.
