At last, the reason why no one can get that killer video!

Cute! Very Harryhausen on the woodpecker effects. You missed the scene though where we capsize the canoe and try to drown each other.
 
Well, that odd blog did have a link to a very interesting article by Ted Williams about wildlife photo fakery. Rather shocking, but not surprising.
 
Not gonna visit Hole-in-the-Truth's site after the first time, there, CT. If he's in need of some attention therapy for his Inner Child, he'll have to look elsewhere for a nursemaid.

I do like those adjectives you chose, though. With the initial consant being "ess," one gets to hiss them...
 
Thanks Cotinis,

Good Ol' Ted Williams . . . Not the original Bosox Splendid Splinter, but I recognize the prose style of the conservation editor for Rod & Reel magazine (now Fly Rod & Reel I believe).

He's definitely one of the "disturb the comfortable; comfort the disturbed" school of activist writers. And I intend that as high praise; for years I read him and his tales of special interests, timber companies, private land advocates, fish hatcheries, and others. I thorougly enjoyed his unmasking critics who sent editorial letters damning him under various pretenses.

Here on Planet Utah, special interests similar to the ones he condemns jimmied the Legislature into legalizing "domestic elk farms" with the restriction that hunting would never be permitted in such environs; a few years later the elk farms went back pleading poverty, and now Texans, Oklahomans, and others can get their testosterone fix hunting in such sporting circumstances. Never mind the threats to wild populations via introducing unwanted genetics or diseases that are so common among confined populations . . .

And now I'm nervous that avatar I use over on the IBWO forum was a canned shot . . . Statistically, it's likely it was . . .
