Hi Linn!

Are you a macro photographer? Or one of "those guys" who use microscopes (that's cheating!) Smile

What's your environmental interest?

Is it o.k. to post about animals? Think Well if someone knows me well enough, I suppose they could. Laughing If you do macrophotographs of them I suppose so. Very Happy

Well, lynn, I will put it this way. You can post the eye of the cougar on here, or even his tongue, but the whole cougar will not fly. Now if it was your pet, you could share in the community forum Laughing

We do have member galleries, where you can post anything you want

http://www.macro-micro-members.net/, but the Macro/Micro forums are for just that "Macro and Micro".

I have been trying to get a cougar in the wild for years, with no luck.

After all that said - welcome to the forums. Very Happy

you need to leave the camera set up.

with something to tempt the cougar to come near the camera.
then maybe get a macro shot.

I never saw myself. just the tracks. that would be a good picture.

I saw them at quabbin resavoir here in MA.

ok thanks every one I am getting the idea of this forum now.

I've talked to park rangers and such who have worked in "cougarish" areas for years and never seen one....I'm afraid that getting a good clear photograph of a cougar in the wild is almost as unusual as getting one of Bigfoot!

If you do see a wild one, this woman recommends you be careful in getting near it! Surprised

trust me
if I ever see one I will NOT go near it. Laughing

if it was say across the lake then i could get some shots. (of course couldnt post them as a macro)
but I doubt that would ever happen they see you you dont see them. any one remember Harry Black and the tiger?

he was waiting to get the tiger and the tiger was right above him unbeknownst to him. Shocked

Around here. three cougars ran in front of a woman in her car.

A cougar (got a video) came up on a back deck

and a horse was attached.

also a mystery killing that may have been a cougar or bear. Three border collies did not return home one night.
The next day, they found one of them. they had to put it to sleep as its nose was basicaly torn off.

the other two were never found. that was on our local news.

I meant to keep the camera set up and hidden with something to entice the cougar near the camera. later come back and check to see if you got any macro shots like a sniffing nose Laughing

Naw, I traded mine in years ago for a pick-up! Laughing We have Mountain Lions or Cougars, or what ever you want to call them, around here. Not to long ago some livestock were killed by one. The biggest thing now is the Red Wolves. They re-introduced them back into the mountains here. At one time NC was their natural home until man killed them off. Cyotes are beginning to be a problem here though. Confused
