The Lensflare Collector by Hubert ()
Due to recent wooden calamities, unwanted accidents (and few Member complaints - TBIP), Uncle Herby decided to keep Woody out of trouble!
"Collecting Lensflares (tm,C,R,IHA)" seemed harmless enough as a hobby, alas Woody......
His collection had started with a wonderful gift from Uncle Herby: A thick Collector's Catalogue (of types, history, occurrences and pricing ranges) including a valuable petrified ancient lensflare! Woody was deeply impressed and overwhelmed by such generosity!
Meanwhile, Woody has collected over 1,500 during the past week and a total of over 1,300,000 in three months, only here at Renderosity! Obviously, he quickly has crossed the fine borderline between collecting and addiction. But this truly harmless hobby should keep him out of trouble for quite some time!
Whereas in this scene, Woody tries to catch a lensflare of utmost rareness: The "60 degrees semi-golden 42-ray triple-duo-purple-ring" type (as Uncle Herby had helpfully explained to him).
No insult towards users of lensflares intended, if applied decently and in *apt* context. ;)
TBIP = To Be Ignored Politely :)
Don't worry, there were NO such complaints from members so far, I was only kidding here!

What a wonderful scenario, you've built there!! , The big challenge to the laws of physical balance, and your work reminds me, this experience where incongruous objects (between them) is shocking, touching, s'effleurent to a windshield wiper and electric. .. as a sequence of events leading to a unique moment!
