I don't get it. A Sea Otter? Didn't know they were found in the Bend.

Having decent gear is nice, but wildlife photography is knowing your subject and getting lucky, and I love getting lucky.

Hmmm.  Since bears are found in the Chisos, maybe they should use a photo of a polar bear instead. ;)

If you are going to have a Facebook page for Big Bend National Park, at least show a little common sense and use a cover photo that says Big Bend.  :banghead:

Apparently all NPS facebook pages use the same banner pic.  The page for Yellowstone has the same picture.

The wonder of the NPS Federal bureaucratic mind at work.  :icon_lol:   Fish and Wildlife doesn't do that.  That's probably what had me confused.  Each F&W refuge / site actually use photos from their individual locations.

F&W actually use their Facebook pages to educate and inform the public.   I'm not sure what the Big Bend page is doing other than looking for recommendations.

Guess you can tell I don't spend time on NPS Facebook pages.  It's a biased thing I guess. I'm a F&W volunteer.  :icon_wink:

Give them a break.  They're the gov't.  It's not their fault they're doing FB half-assed.  They are required to be that way.
