Do post pictures of your bird hunting. Turns out there are a number of gallinaceous species here in the Philippines, and a bunch of pigeons and doves too. Doubt I'll get to hunt them though, in part bc I know nothing about their numbers. There are no game, or fish, laws here. Dynamite is OK, except on coral reefs.

On another note, do you ever do any bird hunting up there?


Yes, I do. I went a couple days ago but didn't see any birds. I should post those pictures, too.

Curious... Do you know if the tree distribution in the second image is due to fire, water, or frost?


Water and permafrost, I think.

Wonderful! In CO, too, it was the ground cover that lit up in autumn. Just reveled in it.


Paul I couldn't agree more! when the lowbush blueberry changes color here in the fall it's beautiful.

WOW Jason. You sure have no shortage of picturesque landscapes up there...

Your swans remind me of the Trumpeter Swans we have around here. They're pretty rare in the rest of MI (Spence can correct me if I'm wrong) but I see them all the time around here...along with wood and Blanding's turtles, which are both listed as Special Concern here in MI but I do see plenty around here.

Anyways, fabulous photos Jason, thanks for continuing to share your adventures in the Far North with us!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
