Cicada climbing a tree in search of a lady love with whom to mate and start a new generation of seventeen-year cicadas:

(sorry, but this beats everything else this month)

Sorry, but this thread is meant for photos shot by members themselves, their own images taken with whatever gear they use -- pictures that they want to share......

That said, I agree that this is indeed a compelling image, given the content of the paper President Biden is holding up -- but the image would fit better in one of the political discussion threads. :).

Hence the apology:)

(it's meant to be an easter egg, but I can move it if it bothers others)

In our little lake we have catfish -- LOTS of catfish! Yesterday, I was startled when walking around the boardwalk to see a lot of them swimming fairly close to the surface, which is unusual. The water was also pretty clear, thanks to a couple of storms we had had the day and night before. Lots of smaller catfish, who I think must be our latest spring arrivals, being shown the ropes by the adults. Some of the adults can grow to a surprisingly large size. Meet "Big Daddy," who was smiling up at me:

I wasn't sure if you were aware that this particular thread is a little different than the rest -- it is similar to the POTD (Photo of the Day) thread at MR, where members contribute only one image per day.

I'm smiling because I am still getting a kick out of after four years finally being again able to use the President's name with the word "President" in front of it! LOL! I flat-out refused to put the word "President" in front of the Orange guy's name; he didn't deserve that honor and recognition, and I never considered him "presidential" in any way. I'm so happy that we have a real president again!

He's a whopper! That photo was shot with my 100-400mm lens and not cropped. He was moving along pretty fast and I was standing above him on the boardwalk, shooting at "Continuous High," but couldn't get a decent shot of all of him in the frame -- hence you can't see his tail. He's several inches long and looks as though he weighs a couple of pounds at least.

Yup, he appears much bigger. Some catfish can reach a length of 5-7 Ft so I didn't even try to guess.

Looks like a pano.....probably too large for this system to handle?? Very nice shot, by the way!

Could be, but by my standards that is hardly a pano. ;) I'll post a later shot tomorrow. Drove 3 hours to get there after work yesterday.
