Photography stops time.   When time is stopped you can think about it longer. When you think about it longer, you see new things and come up with new thoughts.  MRI, xray, and ultrasound photograph our insides so they can be thought about in stop time.  What do some of the details in the photo above let us see?

No takers, eh?  So another question might be - why do the flight paths of the insects appear like a beaded string?


Still no comments, eh?   Neo only interested in politics and art?  I think the bead like illuminations on the insects are a result of the 60 cycle electric current pulsing the illumination of the flood lights. 
How fast are the insects flying?  Are there different species?

I have no idea

I've been following this and tried to figure out what it is but still don't really see it - it does look like the new Federal Building is in the background but can't really say

The spot lights (about 5 or 6 of them facing upwardly) illuminate the white Euclid face of the National City Bank high rise Downtown. The telephoto shot across the lights caught the insects swarming around the lights. A few bats hung on the side of the bank, digesting perhaps. 
Since the lights are buzzing at 60 cycles per second (frequency of our electric current) then the beaded illumination on the flight paths can be counted in fractions of a second to determine the speed of the insect.   There appear to be two prevalent types of flight paths.  One path is fairly straight with a slight hook curve towards the end.   The other is almost circular – curly cue.  Is it two different insects?  Or different sexes of the same insect?


What else can we learn from this photograph taken with a common digital camera? 


Ask Ohio Birds

Ohio Birds has started up a similar network to realneo.  Talk about people who love to TALK!  They may need a hand to make it more interactive.  I am sure you will get a reaction from these folks.  Give it a try:

Fun site - I like Ohio birds

seems like a very knowledgeable group - lots on plants too.
