Of course I remembered... Photographic memory, lol That very sentiment I have tried to live by,.. Learn just a little something from everyone I shoot with. Black fly's are free around here MedicineMan, this May you can have a truck load if you wish. if you would like I can pull it off of any fur bearing animal you like.

Well I might as well start today with the Girl everything is better with a girl in it.
Naming Birds is a fun thing to do but not mandatory lol Female Evening Grosbeak

You remembered!!!
Yes, I'd love to do a 5:1 macro on the working end of the black fly.
Don't worry on shipping, say the word and I'll be there for one one one beaver shots AND I could learn from Pondrader! Now that would be supreme!

That one's missing a toenail!!

The Ontario feeder I watch had a bunch of pine grosbeaks on it this morning then a lovely male evening grosbeak showed up. Such pretty birds and they are much smaller then what they look/how i imagined them.

There was also a single redpoll on it this morning. I'd also love to see one of those.


Black flies are these terrible tiny super bity insects that are attracted to the co2 in your breathe. so they swarm your face and cover you in itchy bites. they are the worst

They are about the size of a gnat. And terrible. because there is never just 1, there will be like 50 of them swarming you. Very similar to what we in the States call a Buffalo Gnat.

I wish 50 lol,.. 50,000 is more like it. shooting small fur bearing animals in the spring. Most can not follow, I have seen biting insects so plentiful you have to yell over there buzzzzzzz. you had better be covered from head to toe. some try to be tough. they leave early


I do not remove the Mosquitoes form my kit images,...have a look see how many you see

Deer flies?
The ones in Michigan were a little larger than that. If I picked the wrong time of year, the bottom of my canoe would be covered with hundreds of dead ones after a short trip.
