If it has been done, I apologise. It's late and I have no mouse with me.

We were on an excursion today... a few pics.

Yup.

'took' them all.

The Lee one is not the 'real' one. The formerly living ones can be found on govt websites...which means they are public domain ;)

That doesn't sound right! Pics on a govt website, so it's public domain? :confused: Can you point to a link that verifies that, please?

All information on US govt websites available to the public IS public domain. It is funded by taxpayers dollars.

EDIT:
Publications Incorporating U. S. Government Works.

Works by the U. S. Government are not eligible for U. S. copyright protection. For works published on and after March 1, 1989, the previous notice requirement for works consisting primarily of one or more U. S. Government works has been eliminated.

Ku, that paragraph is about works incorporating gov't-generated product, such as an individual can't use a govt agency's work in their own book or pamphlet or website, and thus copyright it as part of their work.

If an individual has copyright to a work, and that work ends up on a govt site for some reason, it is NOT public domain! It feels like you are saying that because of tax-funding, that the opposite it true. (And it most certainly is not true!) Maybe you mean that any govt-generated work is public domain. That makes more sense.

Thanks for the link, though. Handy to have.

re: the NYC pics, that one with mother/child statue, where is that? I recognize all the other shots, but can't place this one. (Edit: no, actually, I thought I knew what the first shot was, but now I don't think I do know. What is that first NYC shot, too?)


Sheri, is that a flooded park? Canoe through the trees?


Nice pics, all! I like this thread. A little bit of escapism!

Man eating Lion at the MGM Grand, Old Las Vegas, and a big giant hole.

I looked EVERYWHERE for "Second time girls", but they only had the 1st timers. :(

Some very sure signs of spring.

Anatis labiculata, and my front yard tree starting to bud. :)

LOL, your house is nowhere near that condition, though its been a year since I was there.

The third is a lake.

I can't remember which. A smallish one off highway 17.
