Don't forget about the selfsufficientish pool on Flickr - if you share your photos using the Flickr.com site then why not join the ~Ish pool and add your photos there.
Didn't know about this could you add a link? Cheers :wave:

I was out late evening and discovered another local inhabitant had built his or herself a home from recycled materials and thought it would make a great shot. They even recycled a bit of unwanted plastic :lol:

ok, it was either a female mallard doing her thang, or these guys. as these guys amaze the heck out of me, I went for them.

this is a photo of some black ants farming and milking aphids on my sunflowers. thought I better document them before I go spray the plant with non-toxic aphid killer.

Here's one that's generally just "wild" so I'm not entering it in the competition as there's no "life" or "drugs" up there. :iconbiggrin:
