A dormant camera does no one any good, CG. When you wake yours up, you give us excellent work, so please keep doing it!

Thanks Guys! I was supposed to be in Vancouver B.C. tonight preparing for tomorrows cruise to Alaska. I had plans to really give the camera a workout,unfortunately my wife became ill after returning from Mexico(no swine flu) and we had to cancel. She's getting better now.

Sorry to hear about your cruise plans, but glad to hear she's doing better. These are great images. That second one is my favorite with it's big punch of color.

You have a path of blue color leading right to the duck with gold on either side. I'm sure it was planned that way! Talk about leading the eye to the subject. The tulips are georgeous.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. I don't get a chance to see Wood ducks very often. These Woodies were in a pond in a part Mpls. where you might be more likely to hear people shooting than to see anyone shooting with a camera. wink

aw man that's terrible to have to cancel due to a sick wife,, I sure hope she's feeling better,, and that she has you to care for her,, she's a lucky gal.

I have a trip coming up in less than a month, I sure hope my hubby stays healthy for the next 3.8 weeks. (he's staying home, I am going without him)

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
