Hudsonian Whiteface


This was extremely hard to find this dragonfly, as I went through so many photos in few days. So finally I got the name and opened Wikipedia for better results, but what did I really found there was a very lousy pair of photos, which do not say much. Anyway Leucorrhinia hudsonica is a species of dragonfly in the family Libellulidae. This dragonfly is commonly known as the Hudsonian whiteface. It common name comes from the name of the place its found which is Hudson Bay. This specific one was found north from Ottawa some 70 km in Quebec other words.

Le Phare du Cosmos


There is not much to say about this industrial robot-looking design "Le Phare du Cosmos" (1967), which author is Yves Trudeau. It was created for Expo 67 and is located in St. Helen's Island in Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montréal, Quebec. It is massive, bold and safe. I would call it a landmark...by the way, not far from it was another, similar red monument....

White-tailed deer



The white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), also known as the Virginia deer or simply as the whitetail, is a medium-sized deer native to the United States (all but five of the states), Canada, Mexico, Central America, and South America as far south as Peru.

The deer's coat is a reddish-brown in the spring and summer and turns to a grey-brown throughout the fall and winter. The deer can be recognized by the characteristic white underside to its tail, which it shows as a signal of alarm by raising the tail during escape. There is a population of white-tailed deer in the state of New York that is entirely white (except for areas like their noses and toes)—not albino—in color. The former Seneca Army Depot in Romulus, New York, has the largest known concentration of white deer. Strong conservation efforts have allowed white deer to thrive within the confines of the depot.

One party session


















I have never done a post like that. I have had one to few shots from one or same night club session, but this time there are 17 shots from ONE party. If there would have been a need for an overview, I think this would have been suitable.

Graffiti door


As on architectural Tuesdays it is a nice moment to introduce a wonderful creation: http://stencibility.blogspot.com/ Go and check out what they all are about. Soon there are postcards to come. About graffiti art in Estonia. But if to be smart and share something wise, then remember if a door is closing, a window shall open.

Estonian Playboy Bunnies


A Playboy Bunny is a waitress at the Playboy Club. The Playboy Clubs were originally open from 1960 to 1988. The Club re-opened in one location in The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas in 2006. Bunnies wore a costume called a "bunny suit" inspired by the tuxedo-wearing Playboy rabbit mascot, consisting of a corset, bunny ears, a collar, cuffs and a fluffy cottontail. 

The Playboy Bunnies were waitresses who served drinks at Playboy Clubs. There were different types of Bunnies, including the Door Bunny, Cigarette Bunny, Floor Bunny, Playmate Bunny and the Jet Bunnies (specially selected Bunnies that were trained as flight attendants. They served on the Playboy "Big Bunny" Jet). To become a Bunny women were first carefully chosen and selected from auditions. Then they underwent thorough and strict training before officially becoming a Bunny. Bunnies were required to be able to identify 143 brands of liquor and know how to garnish 20 cocktail variations. Most dating or mingling with customers was forbidden. Customers were also not allowed to touch the Bunnies, and demerits were given if a Bunny's appearance was not properly organized.

A Bunny also had to master the required maneuvers to work. These included the "Bunny Stance," a posture that was required in front of patrons. The Bunny must stand with legs together, back arched and hips tucked under. When the Bunny is resting or while waiting to be of service, she must do the "Bunny Perch." She must sit on the back of a chair, sofa, or railing without sitting too close to a patron. The most famous maneuver of all, the "Bunny Dip," was invented by Kelly Collins, once renowned for being the "Perfect Bunny"; to do the "Bunny Dip" the Bunny gracefully leaned backwards while bending at the knees with the left knee lifted and tucked behind the right leg. This maneuver allowed the Bunny to serve drinks while keeping her low-cut costume in place. Strict regulations were enforced by special workers in the guise of patrons.

Clive James wrote of the 'callous fatuity of the selection process' and observed that, "to make it as a Bunny, a girl need[ed] more than just looks. She need[ed] idiocy, too." (Source: wikipedia.org)

Nice Estonian ad



I would start series of nice Estonian ads, but as a matter of fact there haven't been many cool ones around. More I have came across with weird spelled Estonian words by different entrepreneurs trying to advertise their products.

Anyway I am sure you are interested to find out what the title says. It goes something like this:

I shove pears to my cheeks, crowns to euro savings account!

Or as the google translator says: pears shove cheek bits eurohoiusele!

Ostrich



The Ostrich or Common Ostrich, (Struthio camelus), is one or two species of large flightless birds native to Africa, the only living member(s) of the genus Struthio. Some analyses indicate that the Somali Ostrich may be better considered a full species apart from the Common Ostrich, but most taxonomists consider it to be a subspecies.

Ostriches share the order Struthioniformes with the kiwis, emus, and other ratites. It is distinctive in its appearance, with a long neck and legs and the ability to run at maximum speeds of about 70 km/h, the fastest land speed of any bird. The Ostrich is the largest living species of bird and lays the largest egg of any living bird (extinct elephant birds of Madagascar and the giant moa of New Zealand did lay larger eggs).

The diet of Ostriches mainly consists of plant matter, though it also eats invertebrates. It lives in nomadic groups which contain between five and fifty birds. When threatened, the Ostrich will either hide itself by lying flat against the ground, or will run away. If cornered, it can attack with a kick from its powerful legs. Mating patterns differ by geographical region, but territorial males fight for a harem of two to seven females. These fights usually last just minutes, but they can easily cause death through slamming their heads into opponents.

The Ostrich is farmed around the world, particularly for its feathers, which are decorative and are also used as feather dusters. Its skin is used for leather products and its meat is marketed commercially. (Source: wikipedia.org)



Imagine this beauty and running ability - speed up to 70 km/h. WoW!

Gay Pride Tallinn 2006





I went through my photos of Tallinn and I came across to these few random shots from the beginning of Gay Pride Tallinn 2006. Six years ago. Really? I am not very informed if there have been any other after that. I remember that there were some arguments and the prides in Tallinn were no longer organized. Anyway, I feel like this is worth of sharing, as summers are time of festivals.


Summer is almost here.
