Didn't have to.
Thought of you and the few other NZer's on here - glad you weren't home in that chair when the quake knocked your bookcase over. I've never been in one - would find it frightening also. Also don't like housework...

I know that Yoda disapproves of your choice to turn the mouse into a model instead of his meal. Cute mouse. Hope he got out of the tree before the rat came.

Anyway - back to the serious business of mouse photography - we seem to be having a minor epidemic of mice and i rescued this one from the jaws of our fluffy carnivore cat Yoda this morning - remembering trees make good backdrops i placed it in our Willow out of harms way and snapped away with the 24-70mm, this one's a rather leaner specimen than 'fatso' the other day and i must say i'm very pleased with the result - just wished it was a chameleon or some other exotic creature lol
Another cutie, much cuter than a chameleon

Thanks for your thoughts.
We are known as "The Shaky Isles" but this area has never been thought of as an earthquake risk. Lots of damage in Christchurch City where I work and many people will lose their homes. No loss of life though. I'm staying with friends as I still have no power supply.

I googled "Shaky Isles" and found that you're part of the Ring of Fire - hadn't realized that. Loss of home is huge, even if they're insured. Glad you have friends you can stay with till power is restored. When I was a kid, I looked in an encyclopedia at the main weather or situational threats - earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and was relieved that I lived in Arizona where there was little danger from any of them. Decades, later, I'm still relieved.

Great focus and fur detail ! I'm with Palms - "much cuter than a chameleon" although chameleons are cute also. My parents never thought the field mice were "cute" when we opened up the "summer cabin", but I thought they were one of the best parts of going to the cabin.

Do you have chameleons running around loose there? We only see them at fairs and zoos.

The initial quake was 7.1 I think. We've had over 100 after shocks of varying degrees.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

wow. a big one then. i've been in a few 4's but never one that big. the really scary part to me is, we take the ground NOT MOVING for granted. thus, when it does start to move....holy crap! that is disconcerting!

took this one the other day. i believe this is a great blue heron. we get a couple fairly regularly on our lake but hadnt ever seen one on the overflow pipe before. they usually just wade around the edge of the lake. and, notice how much of the pipe is sticking out, too. been VERY hot and VERY dry this summer!

oh, and because the temperature is changing now, there is a bit of steam coming off the lake there. also, i had to sharpen this a bit in psp because these birds are extremely skittish of people, so i had to take this at full magnification of the lens, 26x optical... hard to get a totally great focus at that range and hand held.

Nice work Bokcheelo and good 1st post,
Craig i think the origin of Richter is either German or Czech and stems from his mother's side..
