This Thunderbolt has plenty of black and white on it, including the black and white stripes they
used on allied aircraft during and after D-Day to make it easier to distinguish between
friendly & enemy aircraft.

Stripes on a hoverfly.




(I think this is Helophilus pendulus, nicknamed "The Footballer" by some because the stripes are reminiscent of a soccer kit, allegedly. I may have put this pic up in one of the monthly threads, can't recall now, but apologies for the repeat if so.)

Nice photo Chavs. (If you tilt your head to the left, the hoverfly looks like an alien carrying a large plate. smile )

lol! It does too!

Gosh, thanks for those nice comments. There's a lot to be said for a lucky shot smile and the crop facility on MSpaint (and 50 out-takes lol!).

But does he have a picture of an alien? And if not, what will go next in the chain? (Unfortunately my alien snapshots are all on ye olde film and the scanner isn't working.)

Is a 'creative mind' a polite way of saying a 'warped mind'?

I don't have any photos of actual aliens (though some odd looking people have crept into my pictures through the years, not all of them were me).
Christinap's photos looks like boxing hares to me. What they're made from is another matter. Or they could be aliens... smile

They are boxing hares made out of wire. They're modern sculpture in an RHS garden near us.

Not topiary, but definitely garden "art" ...

Another dead tree made into a sculpture (not as useful as the bench though).

Another dead tree - but this time "just" serving as habitat. In Hutton's Lagoon, Nagambie Lakes, central Victoria.

I'm unable to see Dotb's post so continuing with Mike's theme.

Another lonely tree with hordes of tourists on either side at the Palace of Knossos, Crete.

Don't know why the link didn't work...it didn't even show as a link. I must be going senile!!


Here's another tree in a tourist place. Bodnant Gardens, North Wales.
