Culture with Nature

10 posts in this topic

We were at the Sculpture garden in Minneapolis this past weekend and took some shots of nature with culture. The hen Mallard was right under the Spoon and Cherry sculpture.

Ohhhh, Dan, that's bad, real bad!

Nice shots, Moose. I like how you snuck up on the sleeping hen.

Nice pics!

Nice one, Dan! grin.gif

I have thought about doing that shot in the past, but wasn't sure if those trees flowered or not... I guess I should ask aloud if anybody knows?

Buzz,

The trees look like Hackberries not Cherries. It would be cool if they flowered but Cherry trees do not fair so well in our cold climate. The Hackberries have cool stucture and will get pretty big but do not flower.

The Stain glass was at Wesley Church next to the Convention Center. It is one of the oldest buildings in Minneapolis and on the National Historic Registry. Pretty cool place with a ton of history. I worked in Mpls. and never realized the history.

Here are somemore pics along with a few wooduck pics in Loring pond.

She was right under the cherry in that little patch of grass you can see on the first picture. The drake was close by chasing everything in sight. It was cool because you could watch her but there is no way you could get near enough to chase her off the nest.

    •   Really, how deep?  Head scratch?    Oh, I think I'm smelling river.

    • that worked today    friend was throwing jerk bait and 4 nice eyes slammed it. funny!   
    • Cooler than normal temperatures, clouds and rain dominated the last week and slowed down the spring progression, including bird migrations and fish spawning. However, a warm-up in the next couple of weeks could change that quickly.River systems across the entire state are running very high, and while the Memorial Day weekend has traditionally been a popular paddling weekend, recreational safety specialists are cautioning that only experienced and properly outfitted paddlers should be on rivers when they are running this high. The Lower Wisconsin River set a flow rate record this week of 42,000 cubic feet per second at Muscoda and there are no sandbars available for camping. The river is running fast and deep, with some boat launches under water.Fewer anglers were out this week due to the rain and cooler weather and those that were reported mixed success. Along Green Bay one hot spot has been out of the mouth of the Pensaukee River where anglers have been catching limits of walleye. White bass anglers had a great deal of success, with some harvesting more than 20 fish from a few hours of fishing. .
    • I believe they use the same blades so I wouldn't expect much of a difference.   
    • So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill?  Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

    • My family is going to be headed to Birch Lake near Babbitt, MN in late June for a week on a houseboat.  This trip is a graduation present for our oldest and I am hoping to make it a week to remember.   I would appreciate any advice ranging from fishing locations, bait, suggested lures, and even sites to see on the lake.  I have done a lot of searching on Google with the hope of finding someone who maybe spent a week on a houseboat on Birch but not a lot of luck.  I have about a month to prepare for the trip so I greatly appreciate everyone input.   Thanks,  
    •     I have had good luck with the "My Plate" app.... It is annoying enough to keep you honest, but simple enough to use.
    •   Yeah well once you fire that bad boy up and show her how it works, she will get impressed pretty quick!
