Purple Cones and Cone Critters

Recommended Posts

I seem to have some monster cones just about reaching the kitchen window. They were busy with activity today. Wish I had gotten a better photo of the green bee. I think I was so fascinated, I forgot to trip the shutter button. The yellow is a thick rear leg. These are out the window.

Very nice - not sure I can pick a favorite, the first is certainly tack sharp and beautiful, but I like the bit of water sparkling in the last one as well. Great work - thanks for sharing!

They are all very nice but I will have to go with the rest of the gang and say that first one is great.

They're all very nice and the 1st one really is wonderful, but the 2nd one showing all the pollen on the bees hind leg really demonstrates what great pollinators they are! ( and Butterflies,too) One thing I've noticed around here is the lack of honeybees again this year. It's unfortunate that we are losing so many pollinators the last few years.

Love the last image. The specular highlights from the water looks like fairy dust smile It gives the image a bit of a fantasy like feel.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
