Other than being a total nuisance, squirrels are very interesting to watch and most innovative when it comes to stealing food. They are pretty intelligent, getting a higher rating than we would imagine for such a tiny brain!

Otis regularly informs me that he is much smarter than I am...and everyone knows Otis is never wrong!

Yeah, But you have the k-5 IIs

I went to an Air Show at Seymour Johnson AFB on Sunday and had a great time. Here is 1 image and I may add a few more. This was a 5 image HDR combined and processed in LR and PS. Thanks for taking a look.

I resized a couple of more and added them.

Two of my favorite things...spiders and squirrels! Nice stuff....love them both!

raymondjackso25.....Like that big fist "comin' at ya"!

Joe...Some good HDR work there!

FS...Amazing carousel shot...were the donkeys waiting to ride?

All I got is another Woody. Lucky to get a shot of him at all early this morning. He's a little noisy, but at ISO 6400...I'll take it!


Otis insisted I post another Newbie squirrel..there must be a hundred of them around here, maybe more...and they do all look just like Otis!

He looks just like the Newbie on the previous page...but check out the notch on his ear.....he is a different Newbie...so many here it is impossible to keep track of them!


Regards!

Because of child support laws, Otis claims he "has no children"...but we all know better!

FS- The girl is lovely...any kin to you?

A couple of quick shots I got while taking a break from working in my shop this week......

So much rain here that grass is growing in my cedar fence!


Spanish dove.....no need to add contrast to these birds!


Mama squirrel. Pretty noisy for some reason...in particular her belly area.....must have been the processing?


Regards!

really great shots everybody.
Been great weather here, snapped a couple of images on Monday and fell like a sack of potatoes (old gridiron injury).

The camera is ok. But the lens is trashed.

Recovery is slow and painful..

No a friend's friend's daughter... It was a studio test with my 18-35 at 1.8 with variable ND...

Thanks FS!
Threw my back out whilst trying to get creative (Serves me right)
The Camera hit the ground, but the only casualty was the attached lens... goes to show how robust the K5 IIs really is

So now I need to buy a new 50-200...



Cheers

I have ordered a Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM last week.
Not in stock, so I added a DA 50-200mm f/4-5.6 ED WR onto the order also
The HD 55-300 is 10-17 days delivery.


Cheers

An impromptu shot from my granddaughter's graduation last night. I don't claim any technical merit for this photo but it was fun and she's pretty.

I tripped while working in my shop on Tues, sent a quart of paint flying......hit my nose and almost broke it...and busted up my knee. The worst part was I tore a hole in my Farm Pants and got them all bloody. I'll recover...mostly already have...hope you do too!

Well, you should do more of her, she is lovely!

That is indeed a great lens, and a great value too. I don't have one but if I didn't have my Bigma I would own one for certain!

It looks fun...and she is pretty! It's a really good shot too!

I have nothing this morning...but a note I found on my back door from Otis. It said......

I'll see what I can do, there are several squirrels outside my windows....several hundred! I don't want my house burned down by angry squirrels!

Regards....Really enjoy what you guys post here! Really am enjoying my K5IIs also!
