    Default Things I do other than work and lasers (Photos)

    I am really into wildlife photography and would like to share some photos with everyone.
    These were from my trip to Yellowstone this summer. My wife and I saw bears every day of our trip.

    Most of the shots were with my 500 F4 and a 1.4x converter. I have some shots of a black bear that got so close I couldn't focus that close. scared the crap out of me.

    I stare at the sun. Here's a pic taken of while at my favorite spot on West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz, right on the cliff with the waves crashing below. The heliostat mount is my own design and build (made for portability and stability in the wind), the filter's a tilting and heated Daystar 0.05nm H-alpha, and the scope's a Televue TV-85 with 4x Powermate.

    No good against a grizzly...

    "We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so
    as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise
    outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with
    a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear
    activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear
    and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop is smaller and contains lots of
    berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and
    smells like pepper."

    LOL

    I started laughing my ass off when i got to the end awesome!

    If a bear ate me you would also find a S&W .357 magnum revolver or a SIG P-229 in said poop lol

    and the bear would be wounded

    no way I would be out there with just pepper spray
