In 1963 after the alleged JFK assassination John F Kennedy was sent the moon to be the first man to walk on the moon. This was kept secret to us and we were made to believe he was assassinated on November 22nd 1963.
Upon arrival his mission was to clear the moon of any alien life to make future moon landings easy and safe. He lived on the moon for 26 years hunting and slaying aliens until NASA lost communication....his death has still not been confirmed however and many believe hes still murdering aliens today.

He's one of America's most bad-ass presidents....Teddy Roosevelt. Not only did Teddy Roosevelt give a speech with a bullet in his chest, but what many people don't know is he slaughtered many bigfoot in his time...this is a picture of one of those events.
We are at the beginning of Winter, and what little snow fell soon melted again. On the moss carpet, partially getting red, the water condensed and made big drops which reflect the cold sun's light. Amidst all this, a tiny grass plant standing weakly with its three stems...
Yesterday I took a hike, hoping to find some interesting photography subject. Nothing stood out, until the last mile of my trip. I saw this beech leaf, standing on the top of a plant, enlightened with beautiful hues...
EDIT: I decided to allow download of the original file. Maybe some people will misuse it or print it without me getting a cent for it, but I think the risk is still remote. And fuck it, I'm here to share my art, not make profit.
Those two Common Blue (Polyommatus icarius) gave me a hard time. I thought they would be easy to shoot, given that they didn't move because too busy copulating... Yet, I was totally unable to have every part of both insects in clear focus. They were not perfectly in line, but well... I think it still remains a pretty good capture ! Besides, we also see their genitalia very well, and there are parts of the butterflies where I can even count the scales on their wings.
You'll see I used a rather short focal length (25mm), that's because I had a macro concept screwed on the lens.
Thanks a lot to for the identification !
BTW, after making some research about this species, I found out that it has seven different names in French... And besides that, we have a normal language.
Ungyō Naraen Kongō (那羅延金剛), also called Ungyō (吽形) in Japanese, is depicted either bare-handed or wielding a sword. He symbolizes latent strength,his mouth is rendered to form the sound "hūṃ", leading to his alternate name "Ungyō".
According to a Japanese story, there once was a king who had two wives. His first wife bore a thousand children who all decided to become monks and follow the Buddha's law. His second wife had only two sons. The youngest was named Non-o and helped his monk brothers with their worship. The eldest, Kongō Rikishi 金剛力士, however, had a much more aggressive personality. He vowed to protect the Buddha and his worshipers by fighting against evil

Agyō Misshaku Kongō (密迹金剛), also called Agyō (阿形) is a symbol of overt violence: His mouth is depicted as being in the shape necessary to form the "ah" sound, leading to his alternate name, "Agyō"
Kongōrikishi (金剛力士) or Niō (仁王) are a pair of muscular guardians of the Buddha, standing at the entrance of many Buddhist temples in the form of frightening wrestler-like statues. They are manifestations of the Bodhisattva . The right statue is called Misshaku Kongō (密迹金剛) and has his mouth open, representing the vocalization of the first grapheme of Sanskrit Devanāgarī (अ) which is pronounced "a". The left statue is called Naraen Kongō (那羅延金剛) and has his mouth closed, representing the vocalization of the last grapheme of Devanāgarī (ह (ɦ)) which is pronounced "ɦuṃ" (हूँ). These two characters together symbolize the birth and death of all things. (Men are supposedly born speaking the "a" sound with mouths open and die speaking an "ɦūṃ" and mouths closed.) they signify "everything" or "all creation". According to Japanese tradition, they travelled with the historical Buddha to protect him. Niō guardians justified the use of physical force to protect cherished values and beliefs against evil.
tomorrow i will post the working progress of Ungyō!
