I knew exactly what it was when I first looked at it, and wondered why I never though to take a photo of one from that perspective! Hilarious! Beautifully done!

I guessed this was yours, Cal, as soon as I recognized the lotus pad. Another great contribution to the banners forum.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Sawreeee! I totally missed the party! D'Oh!
It's been so hot here lately, and we've been besieged by
ants in the kitchen! So I wasn't keeping up here.
BUT I promise I will follow up with a slideshow asap.
Many thanks to each of you for your encouraging comments,
thumbs & acorns! I do appreciate you all so very much. Smiling

Good luck fighting the ants! That can be so frustrating.

I've used Terro ant traps and it was the best thing I ever tried. I used to get the smaller ants every single year, I swear they had a nest between the walls or something ridiculously close. When I tried Terro, it got rid of them for the rest of the season, and kept them away for the next 3 years, it must have killed that close nest off. It's the only thing I use now.

Great slide show Cal! Amazing photos! The details! If only my son wasn't taking driving lessons- I'd definitely invest in a decent camera. One day……

Cal, that slideshow was out of this world! The depth of the Lotus Flower, pods, insects! You are a very talented videographer and I'm wondering why I am not seeing your name on some of the amazing The Green Planet series on PBS. I saw the Flock vid too. Good stuff. Some of those slides would look amazing on t-shirts too! Thumbs up
