Also known as the Torx drive. These are various sizes of torx drives from T15 up to T40. Shot for Macro Mondays "Stars" theme.


Thanks for viewing and happy Macro Monday!

Star Finches are found in Northern Australia, and the Toledo Zoo Aviary. The are considered "threatened" because of habitat loss, and the "cage bird trade." They are a common bird in aviaries though!

A folded Paper Star

Has fallen to Earth from afar

And not been made for Eternity

Or do you believe in Infinity ?

Nothing will last forever

So don’t forget and always remember

😄 Happy Macro Monday 😄

This star of Siam is behind 45 days, I had to return the darker

color when it catches up in 2 weeks will look more exotic.

- I did photograph the lid of the bonbonniere holding it up towards the sun, as a result most of the facets of the clear crystal glass show up dark, some show some blue of the sky too.

The width of the part shown in the picture is in actuality 7 cm.


- An octagram is in geometry an eight-sided star polygon.


- Meaning of an eight-pointed star

The eight-pointed star, or octagram, has a variety of different meanings based on the interpretation of the culture or spiritual system that is using the symbol.


* From the Judeo-Christian perspective, the eight-pointed star represents new beginnings.

* However, the Babylonians believed an octagram represented the goddess Ishtar, who was associated with the planet Venus.

* The Hindu goddess of wealth, Lakshimi, is represented by eight emanations, which are depicted as two intertwined squares that form an octagram. Each emanation, or point, of the octagram represents one of the following aspects of wealth: victory, patience, health, knowledge, nourishment, prosperity, mobility and monetary wealth.

* For the Egyptians, the eight-pointed star represented the eight deities known as the Ogdoad. The Egyptians believed that the Ogdoad, four female gods and four male gods, each represented a primal force or element such as water, air, darkness or infinity. Together, they created the world and the sun god Ra.

* Two overlapping squares, or an octagram, also represents duality. Each point of the square represents the four cardinal directions and the four elements: air, water, earth and fire. The top square of the octagram represents the positive aspects of the elements, and the bottom square represents the negative.


A star magnolia, that is :)


I posted this one as a bud just over a week ago, and here it's bursting and ready to open totally. Once they bloom, they seem to turn brown within a day and are gone. Luckily, this bush is in my neighbour's yard, so I didn't have to go far to shoot it.

Tema: Reflection on Black


Título Star anise reflection

ZELEK STAR dragged anchor at Ashdod Anchorage, Israel, at night Dec 25, in strong wind, and drifted aground in the morning Dec 26, resting on beach near port breakwater.


after a week of stormy whether i mange to get close to the ship and take this photo, not sure for how long this ship will stay at this place


taken with B+W ND1000 filter

1 min exposure using an IR remote

Der Star ist mit einer Körperlänge von 19 bis 22 cm etwas kleiner als die Amsel. Der Schwanz ist im Vergleich zur Amsel deutlich kürzer. Die Flügel wirken im Flug dreieckig und spitz. Männliche Stare des nominotypischen Taxons wiegen im Mittel 81 g, Weibchen sind mit im Mittel 76 g etwas leichter.

Im Schlichtkleid sind die Körperfedern schwärzlich mit metallisch grünem oder purpurnem Glanz und haben weiße bis beigefarbene Spitzen. Der ganze Körper erscheint dadurch hell gepunktet. Schwingenund Steuerfedern sind schwarzbraun mit hellbräunlichen Säumen, die Armschwingen sind außerdem breit metallisch glänzend gesäumt. Das Prachtkleid entsteht im Frühjahr durch Abnutzung der hellen Spitzenflecken des Körpergefieders, der Körper ist dann insgesamt schwärzlich und metallisch glänzend. Der Schnabel ist im Prachtkleid gelb, im Schlichtkleid schwärzlich. Die Beine sind rotbraun, die Iris der Augen ist dunkelbraun.

Die Geschlechter unterscheiden sich nur geringfügig, Weibchen sind etwas weniger intensiv metallisch glänzend gefärbt als Männchen, und die Punktzeichnung auf dem Körper bleibt bei Weibchen im Prachtkleid meist deutlicher erhalten. Die Basis des Unterschnabels ist bei Männchen im Prachtkleid blaugrau, bei Weibchen weißlich.

Frisch ausgeflogenen Staren fehlt der Metallglanz, der Körper ist erdbraun, nur die Kehle ist weißlich aufgehellt. Die Schwingen und Steuerfedern sind dunkelbraun ohne Metallglanz. Der Schnabel ist mattbraun, die Beine dunkelgraubraun.

My first attempt in trying to capture start trails. It was time consuming and required lot of patience to not touch my phone. But the end result was good. Shot on my One Plus 7 Pro

This is another experiment taking photos of star trails this time using a Pentax K-1 and a Pentax 15-30 mm lens. Unfortunately, after about 35 mins the sky became cloudy so the trails are shorter than I had hoped for. (The next few days the weather got worse.) However, I achieved the best colour in the trails that I have so far. The colour of the trail varies depending on the star's temperature. White and blue stars are the hottest and red the coolest. The two cloudy (blurred) patches are the Magellanic clouds - galaxies associated with the Milky way. Thanks to Stephen Mudge for confirming this.


Taken at Hyams Beach, New South Wales, Australia.

Another beauty from last Summer.

Star of Siam always have 7 to 9 buds and flowers,

never stops blooming just like my previous.

Ornithogalum umbellatum is a perennial bulbous plant native to Europe, North Africa and Western Asia. It has been naturalized in North America and even in Japan. O. umbellatum produces pure white, hexagram-shaped flowers in spring; it is often called ‘star-of-Bethlehem’.

HSS everyone!


Little star-shaped flower, like a little dancing figure ;-)


With some music: Shining Star by Earth Wind and Fire


My latest and so far most successful attempt at star trails. This time rather than simply taking a single long exposure I took a number of shots over 30 mins and combined them in Photoshop resulting in a lot less noise and many more visible trails. I need to experiment further.


Taken at Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay, Australia.


Thanks for visiting. I am very grateful for all the kind comments and faves.

Die Eigentlichen Glanzstare aus der artenreichen Familie der Stare sind eine in Afrika südlich der Sahara weitverbreitete Gattung der Sperlingsvögel. Zu der Gattung Eigentliche Glanzstare werden derzeit mindestens 22 Arten gerechnet, die durch ihren besonders irisierenden metallischen Glanz auf sich aufmerksam machen. Sie ernähren sich überwiegend von Insekten und Früchten und sind meistens sehr gesellige Vögel.

Also for the Macro Mondays Theme: Flower(s) in Black & White.


This one reminds me of a star, but I also found the sun yesterday ;-))

But we can only upload one to the group and I choose for the sun.


A very beautiful HMM everyone ;-)


Twilight views from Winter Star Mountain.


Winter Star Mountain at 6,212 feet of elevation is located in Western North Carolina, and is one of the peaks along the Black Mountain Range, which is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which are in turn a part of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.


Departing from Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi at 6,684', I hiked the Black Mountain Crest Trail, across the peaks of: Mount Craig 6,6,48', Big Tom 6,581', Balsam Cone 6,611', Cattail Peak 6,600', Potato Hill 6,475'. Arriving at Deep Gap I set up camp for the night, ate dinner and was able to make a final short hike up to Winter Star. My plans were to shoot sunset from here but it was obscured by trees at the peak. The evening was not wasted with wonderful views of layered ridge lines disappearing into the distance. A view that I had entirely to myself, which I was surprised with considering the busy Labor Day weekend.

Planetary nebula HFG1 (PK 136+05)


HFG1 is an old, faint, and thus rarely imaged planetary nebula in Cassiopeia. Its most distinctive feature, the blue bowshock, results from this ball of expanding gas bowling through the interstellar medium at between 29 and 59 kilometers per second, leaving behind a trail of gasses. A planetary nebula forms when a sunlike star reaches the advanced age where it first becomes a bloated red giant star, and then throws off the star’s outer shell of gasses when the core collapses to form a white dwarf star. In the case of HFG1, the central white dwarf star V664 Cas is accompanied by a smaller star that is so close it completes each orbit in only about 14 hours. HFG has expanded for approximately 10,000 years, to the point where the nebula is about one lightyear across.


Telescope: .5 meter Planewave CDK20 telescope


Camera: FLI PL9000 monochrome camera


Location: Sierra Remote Observatories in California


Date: October 18 through November 10 of 2018


Exposure time: 48.5 hours of Hα data (97x 30min subframes), 36 hours of OIII (72x30min), and 5.7 hours combined for RGB (stars only). So total image exposure time is over 90 hours.


Processing: PixInsight and Photoshop


Note: This is a stacked single target image. Only the bad (overscan and alignment overlapped) edges of the frame were cropped out.
