    Re: Wasp

    Thanks Ray. :) I quite often take the camera out in the garden and sit quietly. With that Trumpet Vine flower being close and the insects buzzing around, I thought. I might be lucky enough to get a...

    An instinctive reaction will occur in all species to avert anything or anyone that poses an immediate threat. Wasp versus human is an example. We see each other at threats if the circumstances are...

    I do if they do ..and no doubt more survive my proximity than don't. Not knowing the mind of a wasp, I can't say for sure but I rather suspect they sting the other species that has got in its way...

    Wasps come after us when we're eating and drinking. They aren't put off by our presence or the fact that we're actually eating or drinking what they want. It's then that we are in danger of being...

    Re: Gary's clock

    Thanks. :) It did take a bit of doing but all I did was to more or less follow instructions. I'm sure I could never have designed it for myself. The clock must be a nice item to own.

    Re: Wasp

    The wasp was dead alright. I think the colour may not be accurate because of the strong LED lighting it was under. The camera lens is surrounded by LED lights. I think wasps sting for no reason...

    Some time ago I came to the forum and mentioned I was following a tutorial for drawing a clock by Gary Priester. I show it here. It isn't quite the same as the finished drawing in the tutorial but I...

    Re: Rotating a line

    I might understand why the # works. Pressing the hash key shows the grid, so if hash is something to do with the grid, then typing hash plus the degrees tells the program to rotate relative to the...

    Re: Rotating a line

    Thanks everyone. I thought I'd tried all keyboard combinations to get a line to rotate a few degrees from the vertical position without having to add or subtract from 90. I'd searched widely before...

    I came across the tutorial linked to below and followed it. It gave me quite a few hours of interest and taught me things that I didn't know the program was capable of. Thanks Gary Priester. :)

    One possible reason for slowness I've read about is that Windows Defender scans relevant files every time a program is started. This method of working might always cause a delay. If a different AV...
