It's well into the first of February on the International Dateline.

Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

We have hundreds of little baby Mantis' in the Loganberry creeper at the bottom of the yard.

Looks like one of the dementors that attack Harry Potter in that underpass! Care to give an explanation of how you got this effect?

Haha indeed. :) Wikipedia defines it as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derny

I haven't followed one yet - I suppose I probably will in time. I'm still learning the racing. I've changed over from road-bikes to track. Won my first race meet - but I'm being tossed up a grade for next week. :eek: It will be harder work.

Found some of these little fellas out on my morning dog walk today. They're a bit early.

The local Surf Life Saving Clubrooms, take just a couple of hours ago. It's been over the century in F or over 40 C degrees for a while now and there's no end in sight. Will have to play and learn with the tilt-shift inside...

This is using my tilt-shift lens to correct the converging verticals and is a single exposure, single frame capture, converted in NIK's Silver Efex.

Got out today as it wasn't raining for a change. It was so wet underfoot though. Looks like we won't be getting a winter with any of the white stuff, but at least it will be spring soon.
Comments always appreciated.

Wow. It must be a bit warmer where you are. I didn't even see a flower bud or anything. Just lots of mud and puddles.
