Meanwhile, back at the natural history museum...

Had trouble figgering out where these should go. Andi loves this little U of Nebraska museum so we go often, and I always takes a camera.

This is Archie the mammoth Mammoth, mascot of the museum in life-size bronze. I like the U of Nebraska flag plus the budding tree in the background.

Later, coming back out of the museum, I noticed the very gibbous moon and shot it with my 300 mm handheld (1/250 f/5.6, ISO 200 I think), and later still decided I wanted to double it into Archie's picture. That was when I started to have trouble figgering out where it should go... So it's here.

In the Hall of Bizarre Critters is a full-size model of an enormous flightless bird with hairy feathers that may or may not have been carnivorous. I thought she made a good subject with the googly eyes. And I'm sorta glad she's extinct. : D

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Cool shots of some rather impressive characters. Have you thought of compositing them into other backgrounds? That ought to be a fun project. I'm a disaster at selections so it's beyond me, but I can visualize what it might look like.

Thanks Frank. My DIL added a caption to that that I thought very funny:
"Hey."

"Uh, hey..."

"You gonna eat that???"
:D :D :D

I keep hammering away at selections and seem to be gaining some actual skill, so yeah, I could composite them somewhere else. (OK)

What a sight to behold, and thank goodness birds aren't that big anymore! S-

Thanks, Steve, but don't be too sure. A large male ostrich can reach a height of 9.2 feet and weigh over 344 pounds according to Wikipedia. My understanding is that they can deliver a killing kick. :S

I stood 'next to' a clutch once, and I gave them a wide berth. The male was there and he was magnificent! S-
