Bugs Bunny - the Archetypal Trickster
www.cruxcatalyst.com/blog/bugs-bunny-archetypes-and-the-art-of-war-for-change
"…clever and capable of outsmarting anyone who antagonizes him…Bugs almost always wins these conflicts, a plot pattern which recurs in Looney Tunes films. Bugs Bunny has some similarities to figures from mythology and folklore, such as Br’er Rabbit, and might be seen as a modern trickster. Unlike most cartoon characters, however, Bugs Bunny is rarely defeated in his own games of trickery"

Okay, I have 40 minutes of birds feeding...tldw... One way to shorten is to take directly the Rexing .MP4 files and import into a video editor. I can cut into two 20 minute segments and overlay them on the timeline with a cross fade filter. In other words, at time 0, the second track starts mixing in from time 20:00 (with 0% visibility); the beginning of the second half. So, at 10:00 minutes here, we are seeing 50% of both halves - e.g. birds ghosting in and out.

I've long since moved out of Casa Flamingo and now my front yard is either a "small bird" park or a small "bird park" - I feed a lot of boids here. Here is an afternoon compressed into a few minutes. Unlike the GoPro that takes an image every few seconds, the Rexing is always going full blast at 30 frames a second. Each frame is a full blown jpeg image, so the trick is to extract every n'th frame to compress the time line.

This total lunar eclpise took place April 15th 2014. Totality was around 3am.
On the night before, I filmed the nearly full moon from about 3am to sunrise. On eclipse morn, I captured the moon from when it rose above a tall Ficus hedge (to the east), until it set around sunrise.
A GoPro has a huge field of view, so the poor little moon is just a bright blip. In software, I "zoomed in" on the huge images to extract a sub-image (640x360) centered around the moon. I strung these sequences together in three different ways. 1) the raw rgb images. 2) Black & White histogram equalized images 3) Colorized with a random color look up table. The "Fun" part is all of this image processing using the Python Imaging Library!

One can reach the wall by swimming down shallow sand chutes that turn into canyons before putting you out on the reef at 80 feet or so. We see a Turtle and several French Angel Fish dining on some sponge or other.

This north wall site is famous for one Penny Ventura (19?? - ????), a long famed free diver. There is a plaque, at depth, in her honor that reads: "In the midnight water / Under the moonlit sky / The orchestra will play / And the shadows will dance / Forever with my heart and soul"

Hurricane Omar passed over 100 kilometers north of Bonaire. The geometry of the circular bands resulted in waves battering the leeward coast from directions it does not normally do. Our side was battered for close to two days. I did a survey dive shortly after: camera on and swim. Later we organized a dive to gather the scattered planks of the pier so workers could hoist them out. We always spent time dusting the coral for months afterwards.

This is the most accessible access to the second reef of the double reef system. The two are closest (I believe) here and deep is not required. It gets deeper the as it goes south. Where the slope starts is a very likely place to see some pelagic species swinging by.

Back in those days, you could dive the pier when no boat was docked taking salt on. Who knows now.
A spectacular dive. The slanting sun through the wood pilars can be very catherdral like. A favorite fish schooling spot.

Being between two dive moorings (by law - no anchors in the Marine Park), this stretch of the reef seems to be a haven for any harassed sea life.

Part of the double reef system of Bonaire's south. It begins at the Helma Hooker wreck and continues down to Invisible. So, after the usual shore dropoff and a sandy bottom, another reef system rises and then falls off very steeply on the seaward side.
Not unusual to see pelagic species schooling over the outer reef.

Definitely an advanced dive; several times we've aborted as conditions change and gotten totally lost and never found the outer reef. When it works, one of Bonaire's most spectacular dives.

Back then, you could dive here as long as there was nothing docked. Now, I believe you need the Harbour Master's permission plus a local dive guide. Worth it, whatever it takes!

Great dive near the center of Kralendijk. Oh, yes, I get cleaned by a bunch of rowdy Grunts - French no less!
