MNBob's recent activity

  • Yesterday evening, after taking some photos of the setting sun, I noticed a much maligned flower that was in its last stages of glory. The breath of a young child could give the plant a ...
  • All are very nice, but I really like the first image. Bob
  • Hi MRP, a few more pictures for another month. Obviously your Kushi is a well trained flower lover! A few more wildflowers blooming here in Minneapolis. Saw a fellow with a K-30 shooting Uvularia ...
  • Not as pleasingly fragrant as MRP's fragrant Jasmine, but among the earliest plants to come up in spring here, they actually give off heat which can melt the snow around them The actual flowers are ...
  • Nice photo of an interesting flower not seen here. Reminds me of an old air cooled propeller airplane engine
  • Love your Jasmine photos and your mantis "wildlife". We are going to need a lot of climate change if we  are ever going to be able to plant fragrant jasmine here. On the first day of April I went ...
  • Thanks for making this a better forum. You are missed.
  • Some nIce photos, here are several of my ice photos of recent origin: Unfortunately I didn't have a good camera (Pentax) with me when out for the evening's  promenade. Photo taken with a toy ...
  • Well, maybe not... Bob
  • Replied in Gulkhand
    Thanks for the advice and the kind offer of a sample...I think sending a sample here would confuse the customs officers, then they might taste it and then just send the empty container on its way. ...
  • Normally this house plant, commonly called Christmas Cactus, is covered in red flowers during the Christmas season. This year a solitary bud appeared on Christmas eve and finally opened a week ago: ...
  • Replied in Gulkhand
    Thank you MRP, had never heard of Gulkhand before, had to look it up online. I have approximately 60 cultivated rose bushes, some of which would probabably make good Gulkhand, unfortunately there ...
  • Happy New Year all! Wonderful red rose MRP, nicely done. Not a lot blooming around here at the moment, down to -11°F (-24°F) this morning, so I climbed into the time machine to see what I could ...
  • The backup battery is a CR2016, just use a coin to open the round cover located on the bottom plate of the camera. My problem was with the main battery compartment contacts (the area that holds ...
  • Replied in istDS2
    I'd try using a pencil eraser, one on the end of a pencil (remember those things?), to polish the battery compartment/door contacts. Bob
  • I hope it does the trick, the contact include those inside the camera and the ones on the battery compartment door. I had wondered about the backup battery, but it was still okay, clock was off by ...
  • I tried powering up one of my *istD bodies last week, it had been unused for six years and it would not start up, tried different batteries without success, I then used some 90% alcohol on a swab ...
  • Here's a flower taken yesterday in the deep North of Minnesota (in the north central USA) Actually frost on a window pane (one can dream), don't think you'll find this flower in the warmer climates ...
  • Nice photo Pablo, I like having the human interest on the right side looking to her right. The eye follows hers with the perspective of the building leading the viewer's eye on to the distant ...
  • MRP, always enjoy your presentation of new flowers not found in this colder climate. We may get the season's first snow tonight, but a few flowers have been holding on in spite of the nighttime ...
