Hawk Walk

Pierce, Deirdre and I made our regular summer visit to the Pacific Northwest Raptor Center to see the flying demonstration but this time we decided to do the "Hawk Walk" following the demonstration. We had the opportunity to have "Anakin", a Coopers Hawk, land on our (gloved) hands and feed them a little meat.

Lego Photo Mashups

Lego photo mashups from Pierce with some help from Gimp and Google image search.

In this picture, the Bionicle Toa Nokama is chasing a Vahki swimmer in Ga-Metru, but Toa Nokama doesn't realize two more Vahki swimmers are right behind him!

In this picture we see astronauts who went to Europa and found life and a garden. Somehow the astronauts got the job of being the Europa garden police. It's a mystery how they got the job.

Here, humans search for life under the icy surface of Europa.

Continuing the Europa saga: Hydraxon used to be the leader of the Europa police but he became bad. With the help of an alien from Mars, Hydraxon enslaved two humans. Now Hydraxon is forcing the humans to open the trunks containing the secret crystals. Only humans can open the chests.
