Foggy Morning At The Boat Landing

This was taken way back in 2016. We had left out fishing boat on a lake whose name I can't recall right now so we could get an early start. When we got out there about 6:30 AM, we found this. Check it out! Sign in to see full entry.

Mooose! Spring of 2021

I accidentally came face to face with this big cow. She starred at me for a minute and then headed back into the forest. A magnificent animal, to be sure. Check it out! Sign in to see full entry.

We Have Liftoff!

I remember this shot very well. This big boy had been watching us for several minutes before he decided to go someplace else to hunt. The wingspan on this bird was well over six-feet wide. Check it out! Sign in to see full entry.

Nice Six Point Buck in Velvet

I got this shot early one morning when I didn't take the dogs out. I don't know how he didn't hear me coming up the hill, but as soon as he heard the shutter snap on my Nikon, he was heads up and gone. Check it out! Sign in to see full entry.

It took WW2 to pull the country out of the economic doldrums in 1942. The guy was working days and then came into the mint to work from 10P... Sign in to see full entry.

The Reverse Side of a 1937 - D Three-Legged Buffalo

This was a coin that I owned about six years ago. I'll post the other side of it tomorrow. This is one of the most well-known errors in numismatics today. I will probably get a bit more into details tomorrow, but the guy that caused this had been written up several times for falling asleep at work... Sign in to see full entry.

This is a flower off the same bush that produced the yellow one I posted a few days ago. This shot wasn't nearly as sharp as the first one, but it was very low on the bush, and it was a very sunny day. Check it out! Sign in to see full entry.

I've seen a lot of eagles in my time in the UP, but there are shots that will take your breath away. Shots like this one. This huge male eagle came swooping down from about 100 feet in the air at a very high rate of speed. He skims the water very lightly, but he came out with a 7 to 8-inch fish and...
