Almost the exact same spot inbound on the same taxiway after landing, similar to the mid 2016 shot, but the tree foliage is very different this time. Great shots!
An incredible aircraft and an exemplary photo of it too!!!

What is the purpose of those two nodules at the rear? Are they flare dispensers or what?

Alan, they called DIRCM pods directed infrared counter measures. They send a beam out to scramble the guidance of IR missiles. It was a part of a 2005 mod a lot of 130s got.
You'll also see IR sensors above the cockpit Windows and right above the radome on the nose
