Day 91

I took Toots to her soccer game Sunday.  It was a cold, windy, damp day, and the water would squeeze out of the grass when you walked on it. She loved it. (1/500s f/5.6 ISO400 300mm Canon 7D) She was right in the middle of things. (1/750s f/4.5 ISO400 182mm 7D) Anything she lacked in […]

Day 88

At some point all of the seagulls left.  Unfortunately, they came back last week. (1/2000s f/8.0 ISO320 214mm Canon 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 87

While I was photographing a California Gull landing in the Missouri, I also caught a male (off the wingtip on the right) and female (above the wingtip on the left) American Widgeons. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 300mm +1stop Canon 7D) Here they are joined by a Northern Shoveler. (1/1000s f/8.0 ISO320 300mm +1 stop 7D) ~Curtis […]

Day 86

Looking South East from Wiremill (Rainbow Dam?) Road.  I always knew it as Wiremill, but the signs now say Rainbow Dam Road. From Left to Right: The back of the Rainbow Dam Power Complex; the BNSF Trestle above Rainbow Dam; straight down the road and across the river is Giant Springs State Park; in the […]

Day 85

Trumpeter Swans down by Giant Springs.  And Canada Geese, California Gulls, and one Coot (young or old…). (1/2000s f/8.0 ISO250 400mm Canon 7D) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 84

Wheat train. (1/2000s f/4.0 ISO100 6.8mm (35mm eq:32mm) -1.3 stops Nikon Coolpix P7100) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 83

It was a bit chilly and snowy this morning.  And there was a big variety of birds down on the river!  These aren’t as sharp a I normally would post, but with the flat light and snow, this was as good as it gets. Northern Shoveler. (1/180s f/8.0 ISO500 229mm +1/2 stop Canon 7D) Northern […]

Day 82

I went down to Giant Springs with Toots this morning.  We saw a variety of ducks (waterfowl), but most of them were across the river.  I have found when it is cold like today, there is a very slight steam rising from the water, and it is hard to get a really sharp photo, even […]
