this N that.1

Greetings..

These are a collection of pictures around here and there

This is a flower was in someone's house

A young fly
These three pictures shows , how they pollinate the date palm , they took the male and take it a part , then they dry it for a while , after that they put it beside the female , so that the powder inside the male go to the female..usually they take between five to six pieces and put at the female palm.

This is the Cucurbitaceae , citrullus colocythis , English name: Bitter gourd and Desert squash..but this pictures when it's flowering.


This is a weird one , i found like that color , it looks strange to me!!

This is a part of one of the forts located in Qattara oasis


The same as the above

A dragonfly

this is a skin of the dragon fly before being a dragonfly!!

nice picture of the skin. Didnt know such a thing like this existed...

BTW...what ISO setting did you take the Fly photo at???

One advice....watermark your pictures you post properly cause to be honest your name on most of the pictures can be easily erased...

Stained: i was putting the iso to 80...

Thanks fro the advice , i am really trying to do my best regarding that..but the thing is ..i dont want to put a water mark on the middle of the pictures..but i might do it if i couldnt find any options.
