But the moon is full of bird gravy !
Otis says that is an old wive's tale and he isn't falling for it. He says that astronauts found it full of castor oil and nothing else. He doesn't appreciate you trying to trick him into making that long trip for nothing eatable.

When he calls for the awards, then you will still be as poor as a Church mouse....he gave you warning!

Regards!

What do you mean with remote / direct ? What is the bracketing amount ?
You cannot use bracketing and multi-exposure together...
Is in the Custom Settings Menu "One-Push Bracketing" on or off. Mine is on so I have to push only once else you must press the shutter until all exposures are done.

Nice shots Hatifnatt !

Yep, FS posts some fine work here. I saw a Sigma Art 18-35 for sale over in the Marketplace and wanted it, but Otis said no, he didn't want me to get it and start posting fabulous shots like FS and show him up....said it would hurt FS's feelings.....

I have some feelings too....that Otis is trying to butter me up for something? No telling what it is he wants this time?

Shot this in the early morning cold today...it was around 28F. Too cold to make gravy!

^ That lens is insanely awesome. I keep reading about focusing issues with that lens, but I'd probably just use it as a manually focusing lens & focus it myself. It kinda defeats the the whole autofocus deal about the lens, though.

There are solutions... AF camera adjustments or Sigma USB Dock for Pentax (I'm planning to get it myself for the Sigma 35mm f1.4).

A little different this time FS? Where is the little yellow birdie....don't tell me you made gravy? Mighty fine shots, excepting that moon...and you posted two of them...that won't get you far with Otis.

What makes squirrels happy...a Peanut Tree!

Otis says you are welcome...but try to do better next time and leave out those moon shots! He does not like the moon...it keeps the little blind orphan squirrels awake at night.

Were you making fun of Otis?

Good! I have heard too much from Otis today, he has already got me locked out of a thread with his filthy advice to post a obnoxious joke. I don't want to deal with any other rants from him!
Little blind orphan squirrels do love peanut pacifiers....and cold beer too!

A break for a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT from Otis Squirrel for his friends in this thread.



Remember, squirrels ALWAYS have the right-of-way.

Fat chance! I couldn't pry that peanut away with the Jaws-of-Life.
