Yes, I found that Ammonite section near Trinidad, been a few years. The antlers came from a skull I found when I was out prospecting up around timberline. That reddish/brown rock on the left is a 10 pound chunk of Mahogany Obsidian. Great for making arrow heads.

Here's a cool mushroom that is growing on the northern side of a huge dead standing tree.

Looks like a spider has wrapped up some of the flower buds before they opened up - it's the spider home or nest, so to speak. When you blow up the image, you can see the spider threads on the flowers to the low left of the "nest".

I think you're right Caveman.........eewwww, and after the butterfly flew away I stuck my nose on the flowers for a big sniff. slaphead.gif wacko.gif

Thanks Chris, macro shots are my favorite! I love being out enjoying the land and getting pics while I'm out there.

Don't worry, Mrs CP - the spiders only want bugs - not noses! Still, just think about what the spider saw..... ohmy.gif

laugh.gif Very!!

Here is a picture of a Bull snake that tried to sneak into our shower tent today. smiley-shocked003.gif Bill Engvall was right when he said...."those things just don't fly right!" smiley-laughing021.gif Dan was trying to fling it away from the tent but it insisted on coming back. Second pic is of it hissing it at him louder than the cat. Was even trying to look like a rattler by shaking it's tail, flattening it's head and puffing out it's body. wacko.gif

You guys need a snake stick - and old, long fireplace poker works very well for that - available at most flea markets.... the rustier, the cheaper! Or just bend a piece of rebar.... drill out a large stick and epoxy into place for the handle, and it works very well too! Plus, it's heavy enough to kill a rattler. Old putters work too, but they are usually much too short for dealing with the poisonous ones. Reach-n-grabs are the best tool, though. you can grab the snake, keep it well away from you, and deposit it out of harms way. Me, I'd rather move the snake (yes, even rattlers) to where I won't have to deal with it again - a washout about a quarter mile from the cabin.

Great ideas Caveman! We usually just grab what ever is handy when we are out working. Those things move fast and we don't want to loose track of where they go. wacko.gif I would be moving them away a bit further as they can travel further than that.

True - they do go where the food source is - in your case, the bunnies! smiley-shocked003.gif
