Nice one Johnny. Its pretty amazing a animal that size stood its ground on the carcass for any amount of time when four guys are stalking it like a pack of wolves. What an awesome and comical little beast.

Nice ones, Jonny and Jay! What a blast that was. Who'd have thought something so little could have pushed up the adrenaline level in some other things who are so big? gringrin

Just what is IN there, anyway?

Ya know this is almost making me want to wake up early and go again tomorrow. Those shots are amazing Steve. How did the hawks and eagles turn out?

Jay, I'm onto the hawks and eagles and chickadees and gray jays and redpolls and trains and photograpers next. We'll see.

MM, while the second one will sell some prints (it's almost full frame), I think the explore Minnesota image will have the ultimate best market. Think tourism/promotion. gringrin

MM, it was all the 30D/20D and Canon 400 f5.6L, with monopod in most cases, at iso400, f5.6 and shutter speeds from 1/125 to 1/640.

Nice bunch of photos. I wish I had been there. I saw a nature show one time where an ermine was guarding his food against a wolf, and doing a danged good job of it. Them things can be vicious for their size.

Steve, I agree with the Explore MN shot. I can see a lot of possibilities there. BTW, your exif doesn't show up in any of your images.

Thank for the great time guys. I just got home and was able to upload my pics. Great looking shots by all and I hope that I have a couple of keepers but that will have to wait tomorrow.

X-T, there was no EC in these images. I used evaluative metering and the whites luckily were not blown out in any of them. One or two were about 1/3 underexposed.

It's hard to let the meter just be the meter (well, it's hard for me, anyway), but sometimes that's best. smilesmile

Here some of the little guy that I was able to capture. He was definitely one of the highlights of the day and good for a laugh or two.

Who's that ?

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
