Photos from the field

Through my adventures photos are taken that never seem to make it into specific fish posts. To be honest, a lot of my fishing goes unseen or heard. Even though these pictures may not be ready for prime time fishing posts, I have found a way to fit them in an excerpt called “Photos from the field.”

May has fallen on Colorado with a bit of sunshine and winds leftover from March and April. I expected a soft warm blanket but instead was handed a whipped towel. There is no value in complaining about the wind but I still manage to find the time. These photos are a smattering of random shots taken between gusts and a few casts.

May 12th 2011
(Above: This storm could have packed a real snow wallop had the temps dropped just a little bit lower. Flirting between rain and snow most of the metro\front range received a slight “dusting” of an inch or so. Higher up was dealt over a foot. Chains were required to go over the high mountain pass. Summer never comes for some places or is fleeting at best.)

Lil bunny
(Above: Our office is overrun with tiny bunnies right now as these little grass munchers make the most of our expensive landscape. I’m telling you. These things breed like rabbits.)

Wood Shrooms
(Above: I am guessing this is the Velvet Shank\Flammulina velutipes Tricholomataceae. Supposedly edible but I wasn’t brave enough to take a slice for tasting. Besides, the cluster of wood mushrooms looks pretty cool just the way it is.)

Two gals on a stroll
(Above: Two gals going for a sun-filled stroll on saddled brown ponies. As much as people love their cars there are still a few people that like things the old fashioned way and don’t mind the slower pace once in a while. Arvada has an equestrian tradition that still thrives. Drivers of petrol based automobile units slow down and smile as they tip their hat while yielding the right of way.)

Goslings…ok they are cute.
(Above: Geese are not my favorite parks resident in Colorado. To be honest they kinda mess things up here in regards to bacteria and other issues. Originally the deal was that they would just pass through. Instead flocks started moving in like a bunch of in-laws you were never really that crazy about to begun with. But I have to admit that these goslings are darn cute.)

Thank you so much for your views, rates and especially the amazing comments. This blog is fueled by your support.

Good luck and good fishing.

Nice pics. ALways nice to see slices of your life as well as the fishing. I love the baby goslings, well, baby anythings ARE cute, but omg, what a mess the adults make. You're right. Same here, as far as they were supposedly passing through, but we have HOARDES of them EVERYWHERE now. Wonder if they make good eating? Probably should be a season on them!

Ah, life on the Front Range. Nice post. I've got a true (but gruesome)bunny story, but I'll save it for another time.
