Hello! (pics added)

30 posts in this topic

I want to introduce myself here to the photography club. I have been a long time looker and I figure I could chime in once in a while and I like so many others always has a question from time to time. I am a student at UW-stevens point majoring in wildlife ecology after I received my AAS in natural resources from clc in brainerd, mn. I have many pictures from my jobs and adventures afield so i will try to start posting them in the next few days. I upgraded my artillary recently to a canon digital rebel xt with a standard lens and a 55-250. Its a decent combo but i would really like to upgrade to a larger lens soon. Look forward to sharing my thoughts and works of art.

Can't wait to start seeing the pictures. Especially since I have similar equipment--the XTi and 75-300 lens. Still learning the ropes, so the answers to everybody's questions and all the comments get absorbed like a sponge.

As far as I know there is nothing you need to do other than join Photobucket. You may want to consider Flicker as well, also free. I don't use any of those sites but there are folks that do, they may have more information.

I find Flickr easier and you also don't give up rights to your photos, like you could on Photobucket.

Being that you're a student...I'm only going to tell you that those are not cone flowers. You'll have to do the research and find out what they really are!!

You got some nice pics there...Welcome!

    • Google;   Sayyid Qutb  and you can then read and decide on your own where and how todays Islamic Fundamentalists originated. 
    • Also check out discount ramps dot com
    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
