      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

A chance encounter....

Recommended Posts

Took a drive at lunch today to see what I could see, and found myself face to face with:

Unfortunately, at 50 feet, best I could do at this point was through the windshield. After a few moments he trotted off over a hill and into the woods to my left. I got out of the car and followed, and he humored me by coming back out of the woods and across a small lake at the foot of the hill:

What a neat encounter Ken. I am so jealous that you and Steve get to see all these black wolves. Maybe someday I will get my opportunity to see a black one but until then you and Steve will have to stay on patrol.

Gee, have you got a rabbit's foot in your pocket, with still enough scent to attract wolves? whistle You and steve have sure had some neat wolf encouters lately. It's a nice series, but the second to the last, is so cool. I love the way he's framed by the trees and looking off into the wild. It's a real north country shot. That one would look super on the wall.

BTW, have you ever thought about cutting a hole in your windshield, just large enough for your longest lens? grin

great captures Ken!...Last wolf I had the opportunity of observing was on Hwy 16 near Skibo last summer....trotted out onto the shoulder of the highway with a fresh killed rabbit dangling from it's jaws...took one look at my vehicle and trotted back into the brush....took about 20 seconds....

Lucky...(in my best Napolean Dynamite voice)

The first one has the eyes...they draw me right in.
