The "Bigma"

I felt really bad, I really did. Here I was with the Sigma 150-500mm "bigma" lens and all Q had was his measly little ole Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens.

I don't know what kind of bird this is but he (or she) was trying to get the scraps of food that the tourists were throwing to the prairie dogs, something they aren't supposed to do because it will literally kill the prairie dogs.

Prairie dogs don't drink water, they get all of their moisture from the plants they eat so when a tourist throws them cheetos or potato chips they are depriving the prairie dog of the much need moisture. They are dehydrating the prairie dogs from the inside out.


  1. Very nice capture of a Western Meadowlark. Bottom pic is guide book quality.

    Glad you included the information about the prairie dogs. I see this happening everytime I visit.

  2. I should have known you would know what kind of bird that was!!

  3. These pictures came out real good! You need to take your Bigma out shooting more often.
