You see? Rubys ARE everywhere!! Especially in the toy box! Very creative!

Those links are a lot cuter than the plain ones my kids had when they were small. Nice choice for RT.

Ahhh... when I first looked I wasn't seeing fish at all. Took a second, but I got it.

To respond to your comment, there's no big trick to night shots really. For that shot I was mounted on a sturdy tripod and used a wireless remote and mirror lockup to keep any camera movement to the absolute minimum. The exposure itself was (I'm going from memory, but I think) 4 seconds at f/11 and ISO 100. Using mirror lockup was probably overkill, and the wireless remote could be omitted or replaced by a cable release or using the self timer. The tripod, however, is pretty much required.

And if you're in a semi-sketchy neighborhood like I was, it also helps to have your dog along to watch your back. ;)
