Excellent shot. Both the cricket and the photo

Agreed. When I opened my files during a trip last winter I found some pictures of crossbills were in bleach bypass mode. Not what I was looking for.

We pulled over for one fox by the side of the road - then there two, then three.







I had to remove the TC as they were so close (and the light wasn't great), so this is just with the K-3 and the DA*300mm.
Wow. Great shots. Loved the 2nd one.

They are usually quite shy. I have yet to get any keeper of them.
Were these taken in TO?
A few years ago, in Moore Park Ravine (Rosedale) a pair of foxes had a den and kits within 10 feet of the trail. The kits frolicked around outside the den with no fear of the numerous small groups of people passing by. It's a matter of habituation. If the people don't molest the foxes, the latter will ignore the former. However, as soon as the adult smelled or heard a dog on a leash coming up the path about 100 yards away, the adult vocalized and the kits instantly disappeared into the den. Dogs never leave fail to attempt to catch and kill the foxes, so the foxes act accordingly.

Baseball is derived from a version of cricket called "rounders", so it's not that different. The object is to to avoid striking out (when the ball hits the wicket), hit the ball where they ain't, make as many runs as you can before they can pick up the ball to tag you out. Sound familiar?

I posted a question about tripod collar recommendations for FA* 300mm f/4.5 over in the Pentax SLR Lens Discussion forum. I thought it would be better to give it its own thread, but I'm posting this link here since there are probably a lot of folks knowledgeable about the topic who read this thread.

Looks to me like the batsman in the shot mohb posted has just hit a grounder.

Maybe he can make it to second base before the wicket keeper can scoop it up and throw it to the second baseman.

The one that goes around the pitch, and you get four when the ball bumps over it.

You might find them at the Spring Gully Conservation Park. Although it looks like the Striated is more common there.

Or in Christison Park.

If you look at the wikipedia article on the origin of baseball, you'll find the question is far from answered and the information is extremely complicated, even as to the form of the game being played when the term "baseball" or "base ball" or numerous other variations are first used. Whether the people* who eventually standardized the basic form of American baseball even knew of "rounders" is doubtful. There are bewildering variations on games involving throwing a ball then hitting it with a wooden thing. Coming to the one older game most similar to American baseball and saying, ah-hah! that's where baseball originated will not give you the answer.


*Credit is commonly given to Abner Doubleday, but that is almost certainly as false as the claim that Betsy Ross designed the first American flag after being asked to do so by G. Washington.
