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.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
