Pretty slick stuff, this oil!

Tyto hand rails got a splash of wood oil the other day. Small hydrocarbon slicks then showed out alongside a footbridge.

Pretty enough when first seen. Applied severe lighten and contrast to the original image. Even prettier, yes?

And the slick's fast disappearing. No such magic with BP's calamity.

Also looking slick, Black-fronted Dotterel (Elseyornis melanops) on the edge of a favourite muddy patch at northeast of wetlands.

Now, now Tony, lets not encourage BP - on the basis of Art!
Besides, they would want to charge you for the materials costs.
Interesting photo project, though.

Nice Dotterell image Tony.

BP: Beyond pollution!

Thanks Mark.

Wonder of wonders! Went out today geared up for snakes rather than birds and found an obliging 1.4m Brown Snake waiting patiently for me. ...
