Couple shots from this weekend

16 posts in this topic

I was over in northern Wisconsin looking for lady slippers and came up empty handed. I did manage a few other shots though. It sure was a great weekend to be in the woods.

I love the fawn, something I still haven't got. That loon is gorgeous with the perfect light and perfect exposure. Gotta love the red eye.

These are beautiful--every one of them. The water is so unusual in your loon photo--beautiful. And you guys and your perfect lime green frogs--I just love them! This guy is the perfect partner to jimalm's (I think?) snoozer. My favorites of recent history. Nope! JayinMN's snoozer. Sorry JayinMN. Still love that photo.

Great fawn picture. All I usually get is the tail heading the opposite direction!

Those are all fantastic but the loon is my hands down favorite. There's something about the water. It's different than any other loon pic that I've seen. It might be my favorite loon picture to date. If only it had a baby on it's back. smile

Okay, panthrcat. We've seen hints that you are back, but no hard evidence as yet. Did it rain EVERY day of your trip? Waiting patiently grin

Thanks for all the nice comments.

On the loon shot I used a beamer as the sun was coming from the right and slightly behind the bird.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
