    Pinhole Fly

    FLANGE FOCAL DISTANCE:  44mm
    Subject Distance: 1 inch
    [brief report]

    -------
    .. Not art, not clear and sharp, but we like the novelty of it all.
    .. Got another 4" of wet snow last night.
    .. Snow pack is now 120% of historical snow water content.
    .. Gloomy weather leads to indoor entertainment.
    .. The whole damn house is getting documented with pinhole photography. We'll not bore you with details. This shot makes pretty good wallpaper.

    *******
    .. Midges and giant streamers sighted in the environs of Craig, Montana. Get thee to the "Mighty MO."
    .. Lower Gallatin River Canyon heating up like wildfire. No stonies reported but the fish are taking giant subsurface offerings.
    .. The Madison River in the lowlands, where open, is seeing the first of the mayflies and squadrons of snow flies are permeating fisher folk's orifices. Might be a good time to visit.
