Day 123

I had to run up to Havre this morning to interview someone, and just past Big Sandy I found the Big New Sante Fe Railroad (Warren Buffet’s model railroad!) was still storing the intermodal shipping container cars.  We have had miles and miles of them around here since the economy had the downturn.  There were […]

Day 122

The 22nd of April was suppose to be one of the good nights to view the Lyriads Meteor Shower, which comes around every year at this time.  Unfortunately this year it coincides with an almost full Moon, which screws up the viewing until after the Moon sets at 4:30am.  That is pretty much too early […]

Day 121

A Common Goldeneye and his Mrs. (1/3000s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm Canon 7D) Here is a bit of a mystery.  It looks like an American Widgeon, but the color of the stripe by the eye is wrong. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm 7D) My book shows it should be green. (1/1500s f/8.0 ISO500 400mm 7D) Maybe this is […]

A Common Loon.  In the snow. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 400mm +1/2 stop Canon 7D) “Who you calling common?” (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 400mm +1/2 stop 7D) These are actually color photos, not monochrome! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 118

A Horned Griebe. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 400mm Canon 7D) (1/1500s f/8.0 ISO320 400mm 7D) (1/2000s f/5.6 ISO320 400mm +1 stop 7D) (1/1500s f/5.6 ISO320 400mm +1.5 stops 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 117

A short reprieve from the birds… (1/1500s f/8.0 ISO320 400mm Canon 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
