I went to the Akron Zoo today to see their reef exhibit before it closed. As many of you know, I love shooting seahorses. However, they were all hanging out at the bottom of the aquarium and I couldn’t get a good angle. Luckily, their food was free swimming and well in range.


This is a krill (or something krill-like). This little guy is about three millimeters long and about half a millimeter wide. It is capable of moving in three dimensions just slightly faster than autofocus allows. I took this shot, free hand, with the help of a single solitary flash.


This may be the most challenging normal* photo I’ve ever taken … so even though I’m not caught up on processing, I’m posting this one early to brag.


* The non-normal photos I took in Nicaragua are more challenging, and that is why the photos have paused. I need to finish those suckers.

Where’s my cow?

Is that my cow?

It goes, “Moo!”

It is my cow!

It is a bunny!

That’s not my cow!

Some horses need scaffolding.

Unlike the stereotypical human variety, red panda artists aren’t starving.

I was going to make a joke here about dunking biscuits in tea.


Then I found that Wikipedia has an article specifically on this topic ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunking_(biscuit) ), and that fact alone is funnier than anything I could come up with.

Conceptual comic wondering if the audience will appreciate his “mime trapped in a temporally-shifting hyper-cube” act.
