Forum: The Outdoors

A place to discuss all of your outdoor activities. Hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and whatever else you do out in the great wilds.

  1. Backpacking

    I'm not sure whether I've mentioned the boy backpacking but since I'm typing I'll put up a thread. He's been out along bridleways and rural footpaths and he likes it. I've carried camping gear and he likes nights out in a tent too. We're building up from there. Being seven he can't carry...

  2. Drones

    I'm thinking about getting myself a Drone to play with. I've been looking at this one. Feedback is welcome.

  3. Breathtaking Murmurations of Starlings

    Great photos! I think the first 3 are the best ... a little spooky looking. Seeing these great flocks change direction and the murmuration twist & undulate in the sky is an amazing sight but one which I haven't seen in a while. I don't know if there are fewer starlings or if I'm just not in the...

  4. Talk about the weather!!

    This is the kind of weather we have in the midwest. Storm chaser/photographer Jeremy Holmes took this breathtaking shot last night in Nebraska. Like "Jeremy Holmes photography"... Wow!

  5. Pied Wagtail playing chicken

    I spent some minutes watching one this morning. They're 5 or 6 inches long, territorial, they live mostly on insects all year round, it's winter here and fewer insects to be had. They need to eat around 15 insects a minute throughout the day. This one was either side of a busy road into town,...

  6. Boating, such a laid back and enjoyable pastime.

    My mum and dad enjoying one of their many trips on their narrow boat. It was my hubby's fault, getting my dad interested in boating on the English inland waterways. :wah: He and my mum loved it !

  7. Strange behavior for a bird???

    I witnessed an unusual thing today when walking Zeus. For the last two mornings I have noticed a bird that has been fluttering around the side mirror on a car. Today I stopped and took some photos. At first I stood at the rear of the car watching this self-infatuated bird peck at the mirror...

  8. Consider The Ant.

    From Proverbs I believe. Most of us earthlings consider them to be a serious pain in the butt. They’re really tiny but there are more of them on our planet than any other creature including us. For every earthling alive right now there are about 1.6 million ants. Now that’s a real majority. ...

  9. Relic Hunting

    We spent a few days outside last week doing some metal detecting on the property and although we didn’t find anything noteworthy, we always have a lot of fun with that gadget! I think it’s the potential of the unexpected that is so engaging ... hearing that beep go off sets off renewed enthusiasm...

  10. Natural (and not so natural) Wonders

    Because of an intense interest in the natural world, I tend to create a lot of posts about nature and things of natural beauty as well as things of a less than natural beauty. I decided to go ahead and make one thread in lieu of creating many individual threads. My favorite of these waterfalls...

  12. Caterpillar Safari.

    This is the moment a group of tiny caterpillars formed an incredible 17ft long convoy to cross a road in the Kruger National Park. Some 136 caterpillars made the single line and wriggled top-to-toe across the road, linked by a thin silk thread which set their path. And their safety-in-numbers...

  13. Knot Exactly Straight

    This small Virginia Pine in our woods decided to grow in an amusing curlicue instead of straight and tall. Maybe it wanted to be a french horn instead of a tree! I don't know what conditions would exist to cause it to deviate from the norm like it has but I always chuckle when I pass by it. I...

  16. Biking the Hiawatha Trail

    This trail has such gorgeous scenery and would be a pleasure to hike if not bike. I haven't been on a bicycle in ages but I do trust my two feet & legs. These photos are so awesome! A number of old railroad tracks have been removed in my local area as well as part of the "Rails to Trails"...

  20. Winter Birds

    I put out a few bird feeders in the winter months and love to watch the various birds that hang around during the cold weather. There's something satisfying about looking out the window after a heavy snowfall and seeing the hungry hordes gathered about enjoying the meal. There's no snow here this...
