The 3 target species look very "Fantail complex"-y.  What they lack in color and splendor, I wonder how they behave? 

 

Do you ever stick your face down in the water and watch?  Or are you only in it for putting microscopic holes in their lips?  :biggrin:

No, I still haven't tried snorkeling.  However, I do spend a fair amount of time watching the fish from above before I get out my fishing rod.  I think it makes me a lot more efficient because I don't waste time catching too many of the really common fish (i.e. rainbow darters).

I meant in terms of snorkeling to see how they behave normally and interact with the environment/other fish/what part of the habitat they prefer, and so on.

In the world of darter lip piercings, you are a legend.  Or possibly to them, you are Jack the Ripper---minus the whole killing part.

Hmm, I'm able to see them.  I bet the issue has to do with Picasa being retired, so now I have to get the URLs from Google Photos.  They make it really difficult to link photos in non-Google sites.  When I right click and choose "copy image address", I get:

 

https://lh3.googleus...xQ=w926-h617-no

 

The forum doesn't let me post photos this way, but I found a workaround by adding "-temp.jpg" to the end.  Like this:

 

https://lh3.googleus...617-no-temp.jpg

 

It's frustrating to hear that it's not working for some people.  I'm going to be devastated if I have to move my tens of thousands of photos from Google to some other site.

Ben, there is a ton of talk on the Google forums about this and people are very upset... but so far Google does not seem to be responding at all or fixing it in any way.  I definitely stopped using picasa because of it.

 

And oh, by the way, neither of those links you posted show me anything... and I am using Windows 10 and Chrome.

Not happy about this.  For now the photos are in the blog posts.

I had to go to the full blog post, too. Loved it though. Glad to see some new Cantrell adventures!

And Nick, you are correct about Ben being legendary among fish with piercing fetishes. Rumor has it a lot of them are intentionally positioning themselves around his bait so as to get foul-hooked and get a navel piercing!

I get lost as soon as the word technology is mentioned.  So I don't know if the images not linking is related to a forum problem.......but I just noticed that the post counts for members has gone awry.  "Irate" only has 269 posts, and used to be #1 with 3K or something.  So a bunch of posts have been disassociated with members again?  Sorry, I know this isn't really relevant to the OP but wanted to see if it means their is another glitch in The Matrix.

Cool fish, BTW Ben.  What's your count up to on species caught H&L?

Good stuff, Ben. The spottail and fringed darters are cool, as is the tubercled chubsucker.

Nick, I think the issue with the photos not showing up in this thread has more to do with google photos than the forum software. And I believe the post counts were reset when the username issue occurred in November 2014, but I don't think there have been any more related issues since then. So the post counts are accurate going back to that date. The posts before that still exist, they just aren't properly assigned to the author's username.
