Way to go Idaho Spud!
I'm getting great bird pictures for my Bird and Wildlife Group at the Nature Preserve and Birding Observatory here. I will post them when I get back from my coast trip.

It's elementary, my dear Watson, not an optical illusion.

Come on, guys. I didn't even take chemistry, in high school. I took two years of physics, instead.

I tried to look it up and all, but I can't find it and zooming in on one circle doesn't help either.  I don't do well with optical illusions.
