Purple Cones and Cone Critters

14 posts in this topic

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.

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
