Over indulged at the Turkeyfest, as usual; left us all feeling "FAT, DUMB AND HAPPY," a traditional compliment to the chef around here!
Cheers to friends and families, Carlee

Kamalakar grateful for your L + F, you're very kind, my best regards
Like 127 for fantastic natural view.
Very nice farm scene, I love the tassels or the grain. Best Wishes, Greg.
Carlee, Thanks for nice comments. I really like this one but, of course, it won't get mapped on GE because it does not show background. I usually take broad views of the scenery because MT and WY have such grand views. But, it is often the details that make up the beauty of the grand views. Photos like this one are often the ones that look best when framed. I could probably go back to this same spot every winter and never find that the ice formation is just the same. I was at the right place at the right time as is much of photography.
Excellent shot, very good composition!!
Greeting from Japan. Ice.
Excellent photo Carlee! L+F! Happy Thanksgiving from a snow covered Idaho, Don.
Wonderful autumnal landscape! LIKE ! Greetings from Ukraine. Yuri.
Carlee, thanks for comments. I couldn't get these clear and detailed photos without the great lens I have. It is just FUN to use. The curlews were probably about 75 yards away. I stopped the pickup on the county road, shut off the engine, rolled the window down to steady the camera (with IS on), and clicked away. This photo is cropped a bunch and still gives a fairly detaied look at the bird. btw, The running antelope photo I recently posted was the same proces with the same lens but the "goats" were at least a half mile away. The antelpe photo is cropped just a bit, but not much.
As to the long billed curlews, they are native to our area (and probably east of yours in the Green River area). I remember my brother talking about them when I was a little boy over 50 years ago. However, I never saw one till about 4 years ago when I was hiking to Heart Mtn near Cody. Anyway, here is a link to info about curlews. When I read it, I learned quite a bit them.
