Good grief, I hope your impulse to post comes over you more often--for our sakes. The rose and water lily are gorgeous. And that bee almost appears to have dog fur.

great stuff. I have been waiting all year for just the right storm cell to move out over the big lake and get a shot like yours.

Beautiful flowers. I always try to get shots of lightning but end up chickening out.

Beautiful shots - I love the rose, I know how tough it can be to get reds exposed just right & you've done a great job with that in this shot. The dew, the exposure, the dof - killer! Actually they're all really excellent!!!

Beautiful images! I've never seen such a cool image of a pontoon boat smile Normally, I don't like powerful frames like this but you really did a nice job of matching the color scheme of each image to the border. Cool series.

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
