Browsing through Flickr today I stumbled over a Creationist photo pool "The Best of God's Creation".
Alas all is not well with a certain element polluting the stream.

Hey Everyone!

Thank you all for posting such awesome pictures. It is such a joy to see so many wonderful pictures popping up here everyday and building up this site so quickly. This is so cool!

There is a problem I've been running into that I would appreciate some help with. I have been forced to delete mating animal and insect pictures from the pool because some people don't understand the concept of unspoken rules. Please refrain from uploading these offensive pictures, regardless of whether or not you think it is tasteful or funny.

Let me ask you a question? On a regular site relating to God in some way that includes pictures like human beings and man-made structures, do you think they would tolerate pornography? Even without a rule, it would be an unspoken one. In like manner, I don't want to have to see animals or insects going at it when I'm checking on this site. I find it offensive though I understand the humor that some people might see in such things, though I don't. I'd much rather just enjoy my little visits here and not have to deal with such Tom-foolery.

The way I see it is this: If an angel were to take a picture of me with my husband, I would be pretty offended and think he were pretty gross and most likely a fallen one at that. I understand that seems absurd. In like manner, that's how absurd this problem is to me. I just don't understand the concept of how someone can think this kind of picture-taking is appealing in some way and that it's not terrible to do to a species that can't even defend itself against it. Again, I understand that this is not a rule. But I think it goes without saying on a site like this.

Furthermore, please do not repost these offensive pictures that have been deleted from the pool. They will continue to be deleted, inadvertently embarrassing those who post them in the process. It is no mistake that they are being deleted. Please be tasteful and respectful of God's Creation. He gave us dominion, but please don't abuse that privilege and use this pool as a forum to display this tastelessness and abuse.

For the rest of you, please know that this is in no way directed at you. We truly appreciate your joining this group and sharing such wonderfulness. Hope you all have a really terrific day!

Smiles :O),

Can't help thinking that getting to know God's Creation must be a total minefield for Firstsheaf.

Perhaps I've been in biology too long but I don't recall finding animal sex either erotic or offensive.
You also have to wonder, does she know what flowers do?
Or bees in flowers for that matter...
... oh yeah baby...

Sorry. But this just tickled me.  :D

Shot this one for a biologist friend working for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Red-legged frog male in amplexus with a bullfrog female.  Illegal in ten southern states!

What office does your friend work out of? I spend quite a bit of time with biologists at Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

She was managing surveys of Burlington Bottoms on the lower Columbia, which was part of a mitigation land swap deal a bunch of years past.  I think it was a part-time or contract position at the time.  I think ODF&W's main office was still here in PDX at the time but my memory's a bit vague, that photo's a bit old.

She's no longer with ODF&W ...

See I'm not finding this erotic either.

Perhaps if the bullfrog was in fishnets and high heels?








No.
Perhaps not. :p

Cool image by the way!

Why whatever did you think I meant? I had a runny nose that's all. Certainly nothing that was subtly implied by that video was remotely relevant.

Shocked and appalled I tell you, appalled and shocked.

P.S. Oh yeah, pistels and stamens, hawt, pollen shot, uh huh, oooooh yeah bees covered in sticky pollen, oh shiiiitttttttt......oops. Erm...has anyone got a spare keyboard? Just curious, no specific reason I'm asking, all perfectly innocent.

But goes on a lot in the south of France (different species, but the same principle).

I have a paper where we explain this - basically it works if the males aren't very good at recognising their own species, but like big female frogs.

Oh, and the females are happy with it, because there's female biased segregation distortion in the offspring, which can offset the reduction in fitness.  IOW, they're taking advantage of male stupidity.  No lesson for humans in there then, eh?

But how does homosexual necrophiliac duck rape figure into God's plan?



Well, I'd *expect* this from pigeons.

If this one were posted on that list, someone would probably have to call the paramedics for firstsheaf:

Actually, the researcher who designed this survey was thrilled by my photo, because he'd been looking for a good one.   Not only do bullfrogs eat smaller red-legged frogs, especially their young, but due to the male red-legged frog's preference for big females, reduce the rate of reproduction because a substantial percentage of red-legged frog males are trying to mate with them rather then female red-legged frogs.

At least in some areas.

He'd gotten his PhD down in california studying the southern ... population? subspecies? I forget ... of red-legged frogs and his research helped lead to their being listed.  He was doing similar research up here while teaching.

Are those frogs any dumber than a dog trying to mate with a person's leg?

For some reason this line of thought brings to mind Pepe Le Pew...

Interesting that this should come up in light of an AIDS awareness campaign in France I recently happened upon on Flickr (about which Janie will later be posting).






I'm guessing these images would cause a bit of a stir with Mrs. Chastitybeltovermyeyes.

Yeah, Mallards are the worst offenders. The very etymology of the name should tell you that. From the OED - "Used in Fr. as masculine formative, intensive, augmentative, and often pejorative".

Just like a drunkard is the epitome of drunks, and a dullard is the epitome of dull, the mallard is the epitome of males. They will mate with just about any species of waterfowl if they can get away with it.

Hopefully FirstSheaf's hubby is a duck hunter, so he can rid the planet of these offensive beasts...
