Doolittle Raid 76th Anniversary

Seventy-six years ago today, 80 airmen in 16 B-25Bs launched from the USS Hornet to attack mainland Japan. Pearl Harbor was fresh in everyone’s memory and even though the damage from the raid was thought to be a token at best, the boost to the US moral was immeasurable. In Dayton, OH in 2017, eleven B-25 flew over the USAF Museum to pay their respect and tribute to the Doolittle Raiders and thank them for their sacrifice for our freedoms on the 75th anniversary of this event. Lt Col Dick Cole, 102 years old, is the last of the eighty Raiders and was present for the ceremonies. We feel very honored to know Dick and being able to call him friend. He’s not just a piece of living history and a hero, but he’s incredibly funny! We owe all our vets a tribute and I’m glad we are saying thanks to this very special...

Mad Max of NE!

There is nothing to this post other than to show off what I think are these really cool trucks. They are used to conduct the control burns in NE and they simply remind me of Mad Max. Except, these are put to use in the real world. They all had names and I regret I forgot them, except the one with the American Flag is Megatron. When it comes to the photography, they did it all for me. I just had to follow them, at a safe distance, and tell their story working the controlled burn. That was easy with the D5 / 300PF. And as often as I could, I incorporated the heat shimmer into the photo....

Jumping for Spring!

There are many celebrations in nature announcing the coming of spring. One of my favorites is that of the Greater Prairie Chickens. Looking at the image above, it would appear they are jumping for joy with the passing of snow and the coming of green grass and warmer days. And while they are celebrating spring, their jumping has nothing to do with joy! The Chickens come together for a short period, about a month, on a lek, to get lucky. Arriving on the Lek in the dark, they establish small territories then perform their hearts out to attract a female to the territory. And if another male should come close to that territory, the fights begin. It’s true chicken fights with biting, scratching, kicking and tackles all part of the fight trying to make the opponent look unworthy of a mate. Now I call it getting lucky because to our eyes, it never seems to ever work as copulation is never seen on the lek. But a celebration it...
