Wedding Bonus

12 posts in this topic

Shot a wedding yesterday and was finished after the "first dance". Headed for home and saw the first moose I've come across in over a year. It was about 9:15, but I had my 50D on the seat beside me with the 70-200 on it. Cranked it up to ISO 3200 and prayed. Here's what I got:

Oh, I love moose (mooses?) (moosi?) (meese?). And the lighting is great. Amazing. But in that first photo, he appears to be a moose of very little brain. Their heads never seem that small when you see them standing up to their knees in marsh. My preference is the second. Nice shots.

Ken was that down on Hwy. 21 between Ely and Babbitt?

I was coming back from a family portrait session in Pine City last night and went the back way through Biwabik and Embarrass and up 21 to Ely. I drove into town at 9 p.m. on the nose, and you ran into the mooster only 15 minutes later.

Sure you're not Irish? I've never heard of "the luck of the Finns." gringringrin

Yep. Right next to that old beaver flowage. Thought you knew that the Irish were our southern cousins - the luck 'o the Finns has been with us for a long time!

Can you imagine if Moose could stand on their hind legs like a human? Boy they'd be tall. Something about that first pic strikes me odd. Like some sort of woman in heels with fur shawl on or something.

Like some sort of woman in heels with fur shawl on or something.

And legs that go on forever. grin

I'll be in the Ely area wednesday nite thru friday morning. Hopefully I'll luck upon a moose, wolf or bear. Of course, I'm not going to be holding my breath. I'll be happy with Ladyslippers.

Way to go, Ken.

It almost looks like a second moose in the second picture to the left.

Nice shots

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
