The Little Things

Recommended Posts

I took a walk this morning thinking the grouse just might be starting the "drum" thing....I did spot one lone grouse but he spotted me first...end of that theory! grin...but also figured as long as I was out there this gray, wet, white snowy day....I'd snap a few images of things that we ordinarilly would pass by as we stroll along the trails....also heard geese honking in the distance this quite peaceful morning......a sure sign of things to come!

Those are nice shots. It's good to see pics of different things we pass by and never take the time to look at or capture with the camera.

Thanks Ranger....I guess these images bring out the "naturalist" tendencies in me (which I've always had since I was a kid I guess)..these tiny ,the "insignificant" little things are in and around our lives each day and rarely get any recognition but certainly add to the total beauty of everyday life in the outdoors.....We're so used to these everyday natural items in our lifes that they certainly and usually do get passed by ...glad there's others out there that see these "incidental" little things ....they can and do add "beauty" to our life's however so subtly...it's what "nature" is after all....

Excellent images, the thistle image is VERY nice. My son and I were taking turns throwing the little balls (featured in your last image) at one another's shirts the other day. They really stick well to cotton t shirts, those barbs are a fantastic natural design.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • 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.
