So I'm all setup in my vehicle blind waiting for Top Jimmy to hunt in the late afternoon. He's already on one of his favorite hunting platforms... a roof of an irrigation pump house. But then along comes shorty......... No calls , no bait.

Hi Herb,
Did Shorty say hi to Jimmy? Did they react to each other in anyway?
This set is wonderful!
Shorty's face in your IF shorts are nice and sharp love'em!

Great shots Herb. The snowy is gorgeous and that shorty i very cool. I find that 2nd image to be super unique seeing the totally OOF snowy in the foreground...without the story and previous image it would be a bit of a fun mystery to figure out what that was.

The closer shot at the end is packed with details.

Nice story, cool in flights and lovely closeups, Herb. The SEOs should be more worried about the Snowy, if it's hungry. My picks, the SEOs in the snow.

Good looking set Herb. One day I hope an owl gives me the chance at an IF shot.

Super shots Herb. Did you tell the SEO that the snowy could be hungry for dinner
