“Getting Ready to Bail for the Winter” is a contrast of size and the nature we shape to our needs.
This LITTLE sparrow (I’m terrible with bird ID’s…. a Fox sparrow?? but he’s probably too small) is tiny compared to the Huge Blue Biodegradable binding wrapped hay bale which is roughly a ton in weight and 6 foot diameter 6 foot long cylinder (bale).
This tiny decendent of the avian dinosaurs was the T-rex (in his mind of this “mountain” for a while.😀I was trying like heck to catch him flying away. Got one blurry at 1/1000th…..fast wings! Shoulda kicked up the ISO and gone 1/4000th…Loose some f-stop too 🙁 From 50 yards out.
The “Bokeh” (google it) is wonderful in this image, looks like wood grain. 😎.
This might be the biggest backyard drift ever but there are some big drifts in the mountains lol. The building on the left is in front of a 300 foot long metal barn that acts as a wind block to about a 3 square mile field to the north (right). All that loose snow ends up here each year. I know this is a little out of season but I’m posting ALL my best old work again for some business purposes.

I get a chance at this each year. This year the weather didn’t cooperate. Perhaps this winter will top this with all the water we’ve been having. That would be something lolol.
Have a great day all
Location: my backyard, the Bliss DInosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.
This 6 x 5 Buck was standing over the LIttle Powder River Valley with the ridge in the distance being 40 miles out. It was very frosty for this in the early fall last year. I’m redoing all my older images to very high current standards so most will be reposted over time.
He’s actually a 6×6 with a small time that is behind the rear two on the right you can’t see here. He walked that ridge for minutes which is forever in my world (several cameras involved). 📸📸📸📸 I was sitting there upwind just waiting for him with a long lens. He didn’t see me for quite a while.
