          Thank you Diane. It took some time to find the right angle. To get it I had to step into a flower bed, being very careful not to damage them.
          What I hoped for was that the figure would fit in the space between the trees. I had a bit of luck because it fitted better than I had imagined it standing from the side.

        You’ve inspired me to get the Argentum App, Kent!

        Since I am no iPhone owner I had to look up the Argentum app. Looks like fun and in your hands a good tool. Nice shot Kent.

      We found this very large bee/wasp? in the house, caught it, then released it outside. It’s over an inch long, much bigger than the average bee. I’ve tried to ID it, but there’s too many possibilities to be sure …

        I especially like the first shot with all the lines in the background. No help here identifying the bee. I would say, giant bee.

          Thanks Erik, I’ve since been told that’s a Dark Giant Horsefly! Glad I didn’t get bitten!

        We had bees similar to this when I lived in Florida. We called them cicada killers. Cicadas are a very large bug as well. These bees would swoop down and land on them, and then the two bugs would roll around in a fight to the death for about 10 to 15 minutes. The bee always won, as the cicada had no defense except for size. Fascinating to watch.

          That would have been really fascinating Kent, I’ve since been told that it is a Dark Giant Horsefly!

        The orange VW makes it Erik.

          Diane, orange makes it but it is not a VW. It is a Citroën Deux Cheveaux (Vapeur) which means two horse power. (Although the original version had 8 HP!) Originally the car was meant for farmers to transport 50 kilos (110 pounds) of potatoes or 50-liter wine. There is also a story that the car had to be able to transport a sheep  (that’s why it is a convertible) and a tray of eggs without breaking while driving over a just plowed field. The car became immensely popular. More than 5 million were sold and nowadays they are collector items many times more expensive than the original owners paid for them.
          Below a self-timer picture of me and a friend. In 1976 we borrowed a 2CV to drive from Amsterdam to Kopenhagen. Only 600 miles but you can image, quite a trip.

            Thanks for that Erik, I should have looked closer, I had a VW once, many years ago, it had a 6volt battery, and was not the most reliable.
            Love the shot of you with your 2CV!

        Every morning and evening the geese fly over our village, heading between the lakes on one side and the fields on the other.  When I took the dog out for her morning run yesterday the geese were straddling the lane, and we rode through them. Thats what picked them up, and got them circling us.  It was a little eerie.  Not quite Alfred Hitchcock….

      Good shot! Glad it was not in a script and you had to direct it. That would not have been an easy task. Having the dog run into the shot and the geese fly up and then at the right speed circling you. Super.
