Basically, big animal that subdues prey by rolling it under and drowning it -- keep away.   People are often stupid about bears and bison, also.   The Yellowstone studies show that some kids were allowed to play matador with bison or throw stones at them.

Horrifying. Somehow the wolf attacks are the scariest.

Cedar Waxwing, one of my favorite birds. Their feathers are very fine and soft-looking. I seldom see them because they tend to habitat woods and especially near lakes. They will come into town occasionally if food runs short in the country. During winter, I have seen them feed on juniper berries like in this image, and they came into town once and stripped the winter crabapples. I never see just one, they travel in flocks. And twice, in late winter, February, they have traveled with a flock of American robins. In fact, those two flocks had a frenzy with my crabapples while I stood trembling from excitement with my Nikon and 80-400 lens. Most of the images were unusable because I was shaking, I was so thrilled.

Its been 3 years since moving, and I’ve yet to see them here. This image is one I processed from 2007 when in Oklahoma.

This man cycled into the covid surge testing centre and was refused entry to the do it yourself in your car lane (which was empty!) and directed to the rather long pedestrian queue. Seemed a bit ridiculous. Not sold, although two others have from that morning’s trip to the testing centre have which is nice.

A real pretty bird Betty.  I don't think we have them here in Ontario.

Give an Englishman a Yellow Jacket of Power and he will exercise said small amount of power senselessly and ruthlessly.

This is image taken just few days ago & uploaded to Alamy yesterday.   Picnic bench with old cart wheel looking across Bow Valley and Town of Canmore towards landmark Three Sisters Mountain,  Canadian Rockies

Focus on foreground would be natural for this kind of photo, but I wanted mountains sharp too - so I took 2 photos with different focus, then blended them via layer masks in Photoshop.  I really like this one & uploaded only to Alamy and Photoshop micro

 

btw in the meantime it snowed big around here, so this is all white.  It snows as I write this too

Too high up for depth of field then?;) About f11 or 16 would probably have covered that, or perhaps I'm old-fashioned😀

I especially love the clarity and dynamic range in the monochrome images Alan. I feel like I am in that last one walking behind the guy on the railway platform. I would love a Q. I'm sure it makes you think differently and creatively too when out taking photos.

Captured and taken up by the Sun today. Not sure how long the blossom will last.

I really like this. It’s the dappled shade, I think. It imparts the mood of entering a refreshing coolness or something, a feeling, maybe, that I recognize from my past.

No tripod but wanted polarizer on + late afternoon = less light.   Besides I prefer having components I can mess with anyway I like.  Shot with F8,  1/80.
