Sharpie Trailing Smoke

This is a Game Trail Camera capture. (Satire) It appears that’s a Sharpie Trailing Smoke. Anti-Sharp Tailed Grouse Shotgun fire is pretty rare around here. I doubt that could be the cause. It must be that the “Pete” Brothers (the local windmill pair) have been skimping on their scheduled repair. That is NO way to run an airport. I expect too much as they are just Windmills.

Back to my normal programming.

Holy Crap!. These game trail cameras never fail to amuse and amaze me. Catching 7 flying Sharp Tailed Grouse automatically shows you how many are up here currently. There MUST be more lolol. I’m thinking I have a flock of about 100 birds based on what I’ve seen to date. I watched a HUGE flock fly an escape and evasion routine. I intruded into their area by accident and it was quite a commotion.

The trick of Game Trail Camera Photogray is WHERE

The other day I was in a grove of thorn trees that Wildlife use for cover regularly. I was planing game trail cameras down there for the winter. A large flock of perhaps 20 of these birds landed just over my head maybe 10 feet up. I had not conventional camera, just a hand full of game trail cameras. Marked up as a missed opportunity. I don’t think I’ve ever been closer. I slowly walked around doing my “planting” of several cameras. A few flew, then a few more each time I moved.

BigHorn Mountains Ground Blizzard

BigHorn Mountains Ground Blizzard . Highlights 😀

The sun had set a minute before. The wind on the peaks were certainly gale force pushing snow a thousand feet into the air or more. I’ve had more sun behind the “Big Horn Mountains” this week than I’ve had in 20 years of trying to get shots like this.

Bear in mind that the range is 130 miles away from my ranch. I’m look at a VERY SMALL part of the sky at 13000 feet high peaks. Twice a year in the late fall and early spring the sun sets behind the BigHorn Mountains. The angle changes depending on where you are from the range. At this distance, you need really long telescopic lens ability to get “this close” from my place. I suggest an 800mm lens to start..

This is an 800mm lens and the image is a 2:1 Aspect ration 40 inches by 20 inches at 300DPI. I personally love silhouettes and pursue them as readily as images showing the detail of the trees on the peaks in daylight. You gotta love huge mountain chains 📸

Boy do I have images from this week of the Big Horns 📸.
