I meet Jeff "Z-Man" a year or so ago. He is still having fun with his planes.This happens to be a new plane he is breaking in. It was amazing to watch him fly. Z-Man makes it look easy! He is able to make it hover just a few feet off the ground. He hopes to make it a few inches but needs more run time on the engine.
Taken with the Tamron 150-600mm lens on a Nikon D7200, out the kitchen window into the backyard. Earlier this month, I noticed a large blue bird that kept visiting but never stayed long. I asked around and was told it was a scrub jay and they like peanuts! I made a another feeder from some recycled parts, an old fan cage, and wire to put peanuts and whole sun flower seeds in. My new winged friend visited long enough to clean me out of peanuts. Twice! When I put out food I get visitors for hours. It has been very entertaining. I have even spotted a fat cat in the tree! It ran off quickly when it saw me. Time to reload the feeders and enjoy the nature show.
As I was leaving Antelope Island the other night I noticed several cars park on the side of the causeway. Several photographers were standing out in the lake bed ready to capture the closing light of the day. This young woman not only captured the sunset but also took a moment to see it for herself. Sunsets at Antelope Island can be spectacular! Come and enjoy one for yourself or with someone special.
The day I was out taking these shots, there were three or four coyotes out roaming on Antelope Island. A few went to the right and another went to the left. They are generally elusive and hard to spot in the grass. These were walking on and along side the road. It was easy to stop and photograph them. We did see several at different places on the island. They may have been the same group, I don't know, they all look alike to me!
