    but this WAS in Wyoming's only ARCHERY ONLY hunting area for Antelope! (2002)
    -Now it is open for rifle.

    Above photos were taken in September 2002 with the old 2.MP OLYMPUS C-700 UZ (Olympus C-700UZ Review: 1. Introduction: Digital Photography Review)

    And I found Wile E. Coyote on the prowl...for geese...
    Wile E. thinks they are duck-billed...web-footed Roadrunners.

    Great pics. I had one of those 2.MP OLYMPUS C-700 UZ cameras. They are amazing even today.

    I still have my Olympus C700uz.

    It just sits here - since I use the Nikon D200 and their lenses.

    Maybe I'll sell it ...

    My son borrowed it and someone stole from him.

    Now I have been using an Olympus SP-570UZ 10.0 megapixel with 20x zoom. I don't need all those extra lenses yet anyway.
