A chance encounter....

8 posts in this topic

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....

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
