My money's on the goat - he looks confident, and Dima's stick looks rotten, and he's on the back foot Grin

Jorge - you need to take Horse Whispering lessons Pfft

LOL , Susan.

I decided to take it easy... and it worked well. Any sudden movement and it could attack. The horse put him mouth on the feet of a friend of mine! Frown But fortunately, there was no damage. And then licked totally the bag of my friend! Grin

Great photo of Dima and his new found friend ... the goat looks friendly - maybe he wanted Dima to throw the stick? Maybe it was a retriever goat? Grin

I decided to post a fresh picture - working at home, late May 2008 (with a Callomyia amoena almost sitting on my shoulder Wink).

Who are these dipterists and why is there a statue of a weeping woman behind them?


And Chris...I think you will find that French wallpaper could give the Russian stuff a run for its money Grin

I really don't know what Jorge's problem with horses in the field is Pfft These Konik Polskis (Polish Ponies) were utterly charming, took a great interest in our work and produced a good quantity of useful substrate which was proving madly attractive to Scarabaeidae, Staphylinidae, Calliphoridae, Muscidae, Sepsidae and a few Scathophagidae, as well as some others I haven't had time to ID yet.

I got pretty close to a bear a week ago. It was my first - and probably last - close run with this awesome beast. I never saw the bear (this being in a dense old-growth forest a few kilometers from the Russian border), but I could smell the presence of a large mammal and saw very fresh tracks.

Over one year passed and there are 41 amateurs/professional dipterologists' photos more 14 photos from childrens/babies that one day will turn dipterologists.... Smile

We have 985 members in 3th July 2008 (of course, there are not really that number... a bit less, but let's go assume that number), therefore it lacks 944 photos to complete the thread. Smile Come on, join us. Smile

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
