My response is ... awe.

Hey, thanks guys! But I wasn't the light master here. I did manage to run over the bridge out to the reef in time to catch the scene, but the stage was set by mother nature.

FS....Something about that 2nd one draws my eye....excellent. Maye it is the deep blues melting into the paler shades......or the scene itself...or the sun at the right spot.....all of it I guess!

Regards!

BTW- I'm done with the damn squirrels...they are impossible to negotiate with. I do however have a couple of raccoons willing to pose for table scraps......any interest in raccoons, anyone?

Poor Kermit

Just wasn't Kermit's day... but I did get to practice my panning technique.
I followed the Red Shouldered Hawk to the nest, where I heard the squawking fledglings get real quiet while making short work of their snack.
Too bad I could only see the underside of the nest... or maybe for those with queasy stomachs, it was a good thing?

Comments welcome on how to make shots like this better... I was under the shade of the moss covered oaks, so there wasn't a lot of light. I could have cranked up the ISO for a faster shutter, but I don't know how much sense of motion I would have had left. There is a little grain from pushing the slightly under exposed shot. I kinda like the way it came out, more like a painting. I just would have maybe liked the subject a hair sharper and more detailed? I dunno.

Shot with original K5 classic, Tamron 70-200 F2.8 @ 200mm, 125th, f5.6, ISO 100

Erictator...You done good! Nice capture! The motion works for me!

jegr...Nice shots! Really like the frogs...snakes too, since those are non-venomous!

FS- I'm going to try and set up my K5 and some strobes outside to capture some of my nightly visiting raccoons. They are well acquainted with me and I can usually get some decent shots. It's just hard to focus with the K5 in the darkness. Most of my shots of them are with the Fuji X10/X20, which focus well in total darkness.

They don't do topless posing like the squirrels, but they will pose for free ( or a few table scraps!) Damn squirrels have gotten so "uppity" and lazy after years of living like spoiled kids that I can barely deal with them anymore.

Keeping this a K5 thread...I had to cheat a little.....you don't mind if old Rupert cheats just a little.....do you?
Here is a genuine K5 shot...shot with the K5 and Bigma 50-500 while sitting at my desk and posting this Fuji X20 shot on my 27" Asus monitor...then shooting it! EXIF reads K5...which it is!



Maybe next week I can get some "Genuine" K5 shots of the raccoons.....Last night would have been a good night, two of them got in a big fight over a T-bone and rolled around in the dirt for ten minutes fighting...while a third one stole the bone and took off for the woods!

Regards!
