    Under the 1 point per photo...

    mmandel-7
    sk8guy2k2-6
    shadair-16
    nan-15
    Doris-15+3(extra)
    Moonlite-2.5
    sk8m8-1

    hopefully these are accurate...some photos did not qualify...
    Doris, the Bush monkey photo was your own hunt so no points there, but I added 3 extra points.
    Moonlite, some photos were not to be hunted...I took off half a point since the black roses didn't have petals falling...

    Geese Flying in "V" formation.

    www.vaxxine.com/steveb/flyingv.htm

    <span style="color:blue;">The Flying "V"

    This Fall, when you see geese heading south for the winter flying along in V formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way.

    As each bird flaps it's wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in V formation, the whole flock has at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on it's own.

    People who share a common direction and sense of common purpose can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

    When a goose flies out of formation, it suddenly feels that drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

    It is harder to do something alone than together.

    When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into the formation, and another goose flies point at the head.

    It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs. Shared leadership and interdependence give us each a chance to lead as well as opportunities to rest.

    The geese in formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

    What do we say when we honk from behind? We need to make sure our honking is encouraging and not discouraging.

    Finally, and this is important, when a goose gets sick or wounded and falls out of formation, two other geese will fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their flock.

    If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by our colleagues and each other in difficult times as well as in good.

    I'm not really sure if she is playing a mouth harp in this picture but it looks like she has something in her hands.

    I would like to see a picture of the quotable Miss Alabama mentioned in the thread "Why people who speak in public are very brave."

    I hate to post again so soon, it's beginning to look like a monopoly, but this one was cool. Once I read the article, I felt even more admiration for this young woman's bravery concerning public speaking.

    Heather Whitestone, Miss Alabama of 1994, became Miss America of 1995.

    Nan,

    Thanks for the story. I feel about 3 inches tall laughing at this young lady that I have great admiration for. She got more guts than I'll ever have. I think God just slapped my hands. . . .

    Shadair,

    Please don't think you should have your hand slapped. That wasn't my intention at all. I probably deserve a slap myself since I chuckled quite a bit over the quote when I first read it. Looking for the photo was an eye opener for me.

    One of the things I read while I was looking for the picture (on a message board kind of thing), was that hearing impaired people do tend to be repetitive because they can't hear what they are saying. I never thought of that before.

    How about a skater "revealing" a body part that is normally covered for discretion?
