FZ30 is Stalked by a Antelope
Antelope IMHO might be the most curious of all the 4 legged wildlife in the Rocky Mountain area. When I found them with my binoculars I figured it was a lucky day there was a man made dike in the field that I could use for cover to get closer. Once I reached the dike all I had to do was move to the top of the dike while they had their heads down or looking the other way. There was a nice breeze blowing left to right perfect for a white handkerchief. While their heads were turned away I tied the handkerchief on a small bush then got comfortable for the wait. 10 to 15 minutes later one noticed the handkerchief moving in the wind.

Roger, you have done it again. Good work. Submit this to the POD where you were selected twice before. The last one.

Sorry about triple post. Don't know why this happens sometimes.

Thanks for the kind words Jerry. if I get some time I may take it apart and resize it and give the POD a try. I am not sure which of the two is best the last one on the thread or this one.

Thanks Fred. He sure wanted to know what was going on with the white handkerchief.
