Drummer - New pix added

Recommended Posts

Got lucky today and was able to chase down a drumming grouse. He was on a birch log underneath a couple of balsams with a lot of brush in the way and patchy sunlight. We played a lot of cat and mouse before I was able to get some shots. He knew I was there, but drummed four times anyway. Only problem was he'd turn his back on me to start drumming! The last time I was only about twenty feet from him! Enjoy!

Those are really some great shots Ken. I like how you captured the movement of the wings.

Maybe that was his better side grin

I'm salivating over number three from the bottom, you achieved some great subtle effects in the oof areas of the bg, with a very pleasing mix of colors, sweet stuff.

My buddy was back this morning when I checked before church. I got some clearer shots from the same angle as yesterday. Now I'll have to find a way to move around in front of him.

Great shots - I like number three in the second series. Sounds like you had a great couple of days in the Grouse woods and heard some of the Sounds of Spring.

Thanks for posting.

I'm not entirely sure you realize how lucky you are! Those are some great shots, and the hunt to get in that close on a king drummer must've been thrilling!

You boys better play nice in the sharptail blind, get me some good pics... wink

    • Actually ZachD Leech does like this and nice job on the meat. 😎   Leech was just ribbing a few guys waving their big penis grills around and they got all chard about it.   Some of the best Jerk BBQ in the world comes out of a garbage can grill!  So it's not what you got or how big it is. It's what you can do with it.  😉   Keep posting whatcha make. 🙂        
    • Now I just have to pick up the sear box Haha forget leach 😀   Maybe he will approve since I got my SG for 340 bucks
    • Going camping finally for the first time this season this weekend so I rolled a breakfast fatty to take along. I plan to smoke it on my $50 over-priced pellet smoker that Leech doesn't approve of for some reason. I'll try to remember to take some pics.....    
    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
