The sounds of boat motors on Lake Greeson and thunder on the horizon are pretty common in this part of Arkansas. But this past Saturday a special crew of boaters gathered at the lake and brought their high performance versions of thunderous boat motors! They were warmly invited by the local community, permitted by the Army Corps of Engineers, and the area was safety checked by Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Lots of local businesses pitched in to make it all happen, and then everyone held their breath a little hoping the event would go off without a hitch.
There are a few questions that I still have about not only trail and game cams in general, but specifically the one I decided to purchase. The Browning Trail Camera Sub-Micro Strike Force 10MP BTC-5HD. I’ll eventually figure out most of the answers and will post updates.

Watch this male blue jay shimmy over to feed his mate, when she arrives at the feed-stump. They both display a lot of body language in this short clip. You can almost give it a dialogue, if you’re feeling creative.

Right around Thanksgiving, a large group of Cedar Waxwings, and a few other birds, decided the berries on this tree were ripe and ready. There were plenty of berries to go around, but not enough space for all the birds at once. They would take turns visiting the cedar tree for a meal, with the bulk of the flock waiting in a nearby oak tree.
Then there was that time someone shot a big-budget movie scene, at this isolated beach in Mexico. This little beach pueblo, nestled at the base of the gnar mountains of Michoacan, was once a secret spot for risk-taking surfers. But after a couple decades, as the sport rose in popularity, the crowds eventually hit hard Continue reading Shooting A Movie Scene In Michoacan
It’s been 8 years since I traveled and surfed mainland Mexico. Back then, I took so many photos and concentrated on getting those pics to the surfers, as well as Surfermag.com, that I wound up with a ton of outtakes.
