Thanks man, birding is actually how I got into photography about 10 years ago. I did mainly nature photography until about 5 years ago when I got kinda tired of it, then started taking photos of cities and architecture.

Taken while touring through the Monongahela River Valley dead and dying old steel towns today. The Donora Smog Museum, in all its glory!



This is the I-70 bridge over the Monongahela River in Lower Speers:

Are those the trained cormorants? I've heard about those, but never seen them in action.

And PhotoLith's bug is definitely a weevil of some sort. Maybe the Pale Green Weevil, an exotic species.
