Beautiful! Reminds me of southern Wisconsin... I can feel my sinuses plugging up just looking at your pic.

Nice scenery @sputnik was that first tatanka pic a zoom? Would not want to be that close to one of those heavy creatures!

The bison was laying beside the road and the shot was taken from the vehicle - not a zoom but I did crop it a little.  There was no traffic that day at all so we were able to go slow and make long stops - quite different from the tourist season when there would traffic jams.

I missed those, it is beautiful. Many years ago I had a 75 Gallon reef tank, they are amazing watching everything grow and change. My favorite time was when the lights first came on, the live rock would come alive with everything opening up to feed.

Had these (only took pic of one blossom) show up in the yard of our current house. I think the original owner of the house planted this clematis in the early 1960s. Best I've come up with is they are Belle of Woking.

Do you have a green thumb Bruce?  Me ... i’ve never tried.  Think it’s traumatic from those days as a kid having to pull weeds when i wanted to go play baseball.

Nope, no green thumb here. The plant has managed to survive inspite of us owning the property.

Just spent a few days at the ranch to get some work done.  Would've been nice to stay longer - great place to social distance and stay off the internet.

View from the porch the other morning.

 

We hiked up to the high ground behind our barns (the white buildings across the way.)  Beautiful view from there overlooking the neighbors place - took the picture as they were out checking their horses below.

Can't say I've seen this before

z1-Blue_Angels-Thunderbirds-NY-960-3.jpg

I'm calling BS on this photo.  The F/A-18 (Blue Angels) is a significantly larger aircraft than the F-16 (Thunderbirds).  In the photo, the F-16 clearly appears larger.  Obviously a Photoshopped composite image of two formations.

 

(From Wikipedia)

F/A-18 General characteristics
•    Length: 60 ft 1¼ in (18.31 m)
•    Wingspan: 44 ft 8½ in (13.62 m)
•    Height: 16 ft (4.88 m)
•    Wing area: 500 ft2 (46.5 m2)
•    Empty weight: 32,081 lb (14,552 kg)

 

F-16 General characteristics
•    Length: 49 ft 5 in (15.06 m)
•    Wingspan: 32 ft 8 in (9.96 m)
•    Height: 16 ft (4.9 m)
•    Wing area: 300 sq ft (28 m2)
•    Empty weight: 18,900 lb (8,573 kg)

Parallax  @Seadog ?

I'm assuming they are not on the same "plane" or altitude with the wing overlap.

Probably, but both teams did a flyover in New York. At around 8 minutes you can see how close they got...

Yeah, I considered that but the formation seems almost too perfectly nested together considering the altitude difference that would have been required to get that exact perspective.  Also, in that video, the only significant cloud cover seen over NYC is in that still shot at 8:21, which would have been necessary to add to blend the images while hiding the obvious discrepancies in the ground features.  I may be wrong, but I still think it is a composite image.  That takes nothing away from the spectacular display of those two teams flying together.  Excellent video.

My departed friend Joel, whose camera I was borrowing when I took this picture, referred to this as a "Jesus sky". The lines in it appeared after several years. I guess the original file is partly corrupted. Shot with a Nikon digital camera sometime in the early 2000s
