Springs...

7 posts in this topic

I live on Spring Ridge Road, and true to it's name, many springs come from the hillsides into Birch Lake. Took a walk to one I like this afternoon:

Kind of a tough shot to expose. Canon 40D with a 17-40mm. ISO 400 f/22 @ 1/2 second, tripod and remote shutter release.

I was putting my camera bag together, and noticed a dragonfly sitting on a downed cedar not too far from me. He must have just emerged and was unwilling to fly for a few minutes, so allowed me some shots:

And saw one delicate flower that I'm going to have to find the name of:

Dragonfly and flower with a 100mm macro and various settings.

Ken, the dragonfly wing in particular is a fine artistic statement, IMO. Sweet!

    • Like I said Dave I think you are correct.  But this is a different election.  So your vote might matter.  I also wonder who the Liberal Tribune is actually calling if that is the one you want to hang your hat on.
    • Sorry but if Hillary wins I will not get what I deserve.  Everyone who voted for her or anyone besides Trump gets what they deserve.
    • I could care less if Johnson changes his mind.  I think you're  trolling in the wrong lake if you've ever seen me post about any candidate changing their mind.
    • How  big is the lake and what kind of weeds are most prevalent? 
    • I think we can thank our coach, the D will not lay down to anybody. We have made to MVP quarterbacks look like T-Jack lol. What a fun team to watch, is it sustainable? Only time will tell but I tell you what, nobody wants to play our D in the post season. That's what I'm excited about.  If Trent Dilfer can do it, we can do it. 
    • After that performance? Even the extremely biased Brietbart poll shows Trump losing that debate: Who won the debate polls: CNN/ORC - 62/27 = Clinton +35 PPP - 50/41 = Clinton +9 NBC/SM - 52/21 = Clinton +31 Gravis/Brietbart - 48/43 Clinton = +5 Reuters - 56/26 = Clinton +30
    • Nice design, cant wait to see it completed...    
    • So, for Y'all that are blowing RNT and Zink calls, how do you decide what to get? I'm in the mood to pick one really good goose call and one really good mallard call.  I looked at the $100 plus calls in the boxes at the C store but am leary of just pulling something off the hook based on a model name. Any suggestions for someone who mainly hunts in MN only for waterfowl? A good woodie call should be considered too. I'm still using some old Haydell calls, and Canada Hammer, Quack Head, etc..  Thanks
    • How have sturgeon been up there? Haven't been able to fish much (helping sister with hew wedding that was last weekend), but I do have Friday off and I'm thinking of heading up there to give it a go.
    • The final item on my list is to create a fold down bed. I have the aluminum bought and cut and have a friend using the tig to put it together. I plan on using webbing across the top and will buy a 4" mattress from clarkfield outdoors. Here are the designs, I will add pictures when I have it completed and mounted.
