[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last few days we were on Mazury Lakes District where we sailed on small, 6 meters long boats and even took part in race. Great weather and great time. What about nature? Mosquitos. I hate them, but they just love me! Millions of them. Many interesting birds - herons, gulls, geese, swans, cormorants. And of course, our little skipper, which is checking the wind at my picture.

Sorry. I'm still very tired so as note old capstan shanty which we sang very often on boat.

Bonnie Ship the Diamond

The Diamond is a ship, my lads, for the Davis Strait she's bound,
And the quay it is all garnished with bonny lasses 'round;
Captain Thompson gives the order to sail the ocean wide,
Where the sun it never sets, my lads, no darkness dims the sky,

So it's cheer up my lads, let your hearts never fail,
While the bonny ship, the Diamond, goes a-fishing for the whale.

Along the quay at Peterhead, the lasses stand aroon,
Wi' their shawls all pulled around them and the salt tears runnin' doon;
Don't you weep, my bonny lass, though you be left behind,
For the rose will grow on Greenland's ice before we change our mind. (Chorus)

Here's a health to the Resolution, likewise the Eliza Swan,
Here's a health to the Battler of Montrose and the Diamond, ship of fame;
We wear the trouser o' the white and the jackets o' the blue,
When we return to Peterhead, we'll hae sweethearts anoo, (Chorus)

It'll be bricht both day and nicht when the Greenland lads come hame,
Wi' a ship that's fu' of oil, my lads, and money to our name;
We'll make the cradles for to rock and the blankets for to tear,
And every lass in Peterhead sing "Hushabye, my dear" (Chorus)

You go on a cruise and you post a SPIDER!!!!
Congrats on your win Capt'n. But this green spider is nice and sharp, and so's your finger. As Pam said, it's cold today - our first real cold one, and the heater is on!!

Po prostu śliczny pajączek :-))))))

Greg, Well if this is your skipper you headed for Gilligans Island! ;-)) Unique capture, never seen a spider presented like this before - I'm forever changed! ;-)))) Sounds like your having a great time..Well done my friend!

In the thumb nail before viewing the large pic, it looked as if you had picked your nose. LOL
Now I see, it's not a daisy but a critter. :)
Excelent shot of this tiny little guy.

Hi Greg, nice spider, it's of the genus Araniella. Colourful little chap. Nice shot, good details and funny note. Thanks for posting.

This is unusual but very striking Greg. Lovely details and exposure. And as Gert said clean finger nails. Very well done.

No get us a bigger one! :)

These types of spiders are good. They are very friendly and kind of fun. They are one of the spiders that I don't mind to pick up and handle. Nice photo and good notes, thanks
