I would not like one to taste me..that beak and talons are the size of an adult,those talons can squeeze 400 psi too.

Good thing the parents were not being over-protective. Those talons would make an impression for sure.

Water went up from all the rain we had for two days and flooded out the lower Meadows,HUGE carp got land locked when the beavers wanted to keep all that water to themselves.

https://youtu.be/4Eq_gTK0C1c

Here's a carp that never made it..except to her belly.

This coyote,or more like a coydog was laying in the sun watching me mow.

Mother and daughter.

Pretty good size snapper.

Egg filled Garter.

Killdeer chicks are off and running hours after hatching,gotta run zigzag circles to catch one,of course I let him go.


GOD Bless

Default Interesting

I always find it interesting to see the common interests of people. I was interested in Metal detecting few years ago but just didn't have the time. My 9yo son just recently became interested and thus has re-spurred my interest as well. In resurrecting my interest, I've read incessantly about reviews, new products, finds etc. on this forum and I just stumbled onto my other hobby (photography) within this new one Carrying my camera gear along with my sons, and probably my Metal Detecting Equip. eventually, may prove back breaking. Anyway, in staying with the thread, here are somewhat recent photos I've shot.
Cascades NP

Red Fox San Juan Island, WA

Machu Pichu, Peru

A long-tonged bat outside my abode in Lima, Peru. This one took several tries to get

A massive (and deadly) wondering spider right outside my hut in Puerto Maldonado, Peru

Some Uros Indians ending a workday working in the Quinoa fields near Callajocco, Peru

Finally, one from my front yard here in S. Texas

I'm hoping my photography hobby mixes well with my son's and my Metal detecting hobby.

Neat, thanks for sharing !

At first glance they almost look like dogs, also they don't seemed to be at all bothered by you being there videoing them.
