The third picture is the one that makes it. I can almost hear him as he is trotting away "A dog's gotta doo, what a dog's gotta do."

:lol: here by us its pigeon poops. Jeaiggg! !! Dogs looove it :|
I've noticed we don't have many butterflies anymore. Do you guys still see plenty butterflies on your side of the world? We used to have hundreds of Lil white butterflies travelling (dunno - in a pack or group?) through the garden throughout spring and summer but no more. When I see a butterfly these days I'm really amazed that's how rare it's become. Troublesome indeed.

I noticed we had plenty of these Green Veined Butterflies, which according to the internet, like being close to rivers:

I found the above critter while out for a run and I tend to carry a little canon powershot around with me wherever I go; so stopped for a while and chased it around the mudflats.

I arrived home with my hands, knees, and lower legs covered in mud.

Just look at that happy face:

Oh, and I spotted this on the River Wye a month or so ago:

Those poor Mexicans must be desperate if they're making it all the way to the UK.

I can hear him now "Kibbles and bits, kibbles and bits...heh, heh"

Sorry if this is from a commercial only seen in the US.

Me thinks we should crown your doggie the official e-aa doggy. What does the other members say? :D
Regards the Mexicans - best they get there before Donald builds his wall :lol: mind you, I like Donald. He's honest which most people lack and not afraid to try something different. Add to that his success despite his loose lips and you're looking at a winning horse.

I took this at a carnival; the spectators interested me more than the show:

But here's one of the show anyway:

Image

I have my first paid photography job this evening, photographing runners on a night time cross country race. It's going to be technically difficult due to it being pitch black, so I'll try to apply some A.A. philosophy to it and keep it simple (hopefully ensuring I get some useable shots), but to compound the difficulty factor even more, the weather forecast is for wind and rain.

Mrs Tosh is my assistant and she's demanding a cut of the payment too. She's refusing 'payment in kind'.:lol:

From last night:

The long head light trails are a feature of taking night time, flash photography, combined with slow shutter speeds.

It was good fun, even though I actually got in the water - boots filling with the cold stuff - to get these shots.

Send that photo to National Geographic! They always have some photo contest going on!

GREAT SHOT!

Ach, you're too kind, Paige.

Here's another runner (I take a lot of photos of runners). It's a picuture of a lady who had ran 32 miles at this point and went onto win the 46 miles Brecon Beacons Ultra Marathon (Mrs Tosh came 4th lady):

Image

Mrs Tosh was a little jealous that I really liked this image, especially since this lady is her running competition. :lol:

I wish 'neon head' in the background wore a different colour hat though.

I'm totally wishing Tosh lived over here. I'd love to have a shot like that of me running a race.
