    Campfire Shots

    I like this thread a lot. Some really nice photos, makes the work day better looking at burning coals in a fire, even if they are just on the screen. :costumed-smiley-007 This is me a few drinks in burning non-native tumbleweed on a remote beach at Lake Powell during a 4 day kayak trip...

    Handgun Hunting story.

    Disturbing thread to say the least. I hope you were kidding, if you weren't, you should delete your thread and take a hunting class. I came here for updates on the Congo thread, I'm sorry I looked around elsewhere. :smilies27

    Radio communications in Mexico

    Awesome posts and photos! I love the cold hummingbird all puffed up, great pic. As a bird bander, I get to a see a lot of birds up close. The number of recaptures I see always astounds me. How a hummingbird, with a little tiny brain, can travel 2000 miles in one year and make it back to...

    The next time you hold a quarter, feel how much it weighs, and then realize that it weighs double what the hummingbird in these pictures weighs. I am pretty sure this is a calliope hummingbird sitting on her nest, females are tough to ID, especially sitting on her nest with the important...
