1 Clips Grass is Greener

I really wanted to get a shot like this.  I had a lot of fun mounting the camera.  With the few mounting arms and adjustable grips that I had, I feel it stayed where it needed to be pretty good, considering the amount of force I needed to apply to push the mower through the lawn (that I unfortunately let get a little too long).  Also, watching this in slow motion I noticed that my yard has a pretty high clover to glass blade ratio.  Not something that I would have observed just stepping on the stuff.

  5. It can be tricky explaining the Breguet helical chronometer escapement (BM ref. 1958,1006.2066). This clip helps nicely as it clearly shows a fundamental concept, that of the point of contact moving along the cutting blade as it turns.
