    A White Pelican in Colorado? Cool.

    Tony takes pictures of birds. I slaughter them. Flock of Canadian geese did a Kamikaze attack on my truck Monday. Took off from the right edge of the interstate and flew right out over it. A couple did not gain enough altitude quickly enough. Swerved over into the center of the three lanes to try and miss them but I think two flew into the side of the rig. Nothing I could do. Heard the thumps and saw the feathers but not the birds in the right mirror. At least they missed the windshield and mirror. We have a lot of those birds up here in Indiana. So many that some people consider them a nuisance. Turkeys and Geese are big enough to come right through the windshield at highway speeds. Had a goose take out my drivers side mirror and slam into the drivers side window a few years ago.

    I had a close encounter with 2 Swans about ten years ago. One of them hit the top lights of the 4 meter high vehicle. We were lucky .

    Impressive how time looks like slow motion on moments like that. I suppose your brain is working like crazy finding a solution.

    Roast Canada Goose–V. good–pass it on. One way of reducing their count.
    Paddling a canoe is a nice way of traveling.
    I’ll try to post a link to an article I wrote in 2000.

    Difficult, but there is a picture of the Chestnut Leader (wood/canvas) I had. The “Leader” was designed for downriver racing back in 1906. The version I had was made in the 1970s. Eighteen feet long. I’ll try the link to the picture.

    Nice photography, Tony, as usual.

  8. Thank you for these photos, it really makes you want to go back. I have had the opportunity to visit Colorado twice, but I have not had the opportunity to admire its fauna and flora. I will try to go back in a few months and do some shooting sessions in the wilderness.
