    IMG_0420.PNG I was reviewing some footage and came across this object in amongst the sagebrush. Anyone care to make a guess? I have no idea what it might be. Large black "thingie" in lower edge just right of centre.

    Old 55 gallon drum, old water tank, seems like the top could be a dome, or a whiskey still. :D
    Fly back and take a closer look!

    It's not very big. Sagebrush is about 2-1/2 to 3ft max height. Will get a closer look soon if weather cooperates. An old land mine? A downrigger ball? Curiosity will prevail. I will get a closer pic. Thanks.

    Well, I went back and actually walked around the whole area and "nothing" there....it's gone, whatever it was. Flew it again, too and nothing showed up on the vid either. Oh, well.....
