Snowy ala flight!

10 posts in this topic

I really lucked out this afternoon when I spotted this young feamle snowy pearched high up on a highway light standard. I pull up almost directly under her position and started firing away.

At first she didn't seem to mind my presence, in fact she seemed to careless that I was sitting so close to her position.

After several moments slipped by, she eventually tired of the sound of my Canon be fired and decided to take to flight. As she swooped down along the ground, I managed to get some interesting results, my best to date!

Oh, nice!! I'm surprised how set in his eyes are. Warmth? It shows up on the flight pictures, too. Lucky you! Gorgeous pictures, gorgeous bird.

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
