Nice sharp fly Eaglem! That bloom you posted looks like a fruit of some sort....I'm guessing it isn't? Nice shot of it too!

I got this old guy today, and everything about it was wrong.....1/200...ISO 1600....holding the Bigma and K1 in one hand while on the phone with the other. Could only one hand it a minute, so I was lucky to get anything at all.
He will be more handsome when he gets his new feathers soon. Currently he is a faded red but will be deep red in a few weeks or so and have a full coat of feathers.


Regards!

Thanks Rupert and Hubble says hello, don't worry about the tongue sticking out as he just tasted his Ball and it was awful.

Gotta hate it when that happens! Tell Hubble all is well here and the squirrels are glad to see his handsome face again! They recommend a cold ale to flush out the bad taste...but they recommend a cold ale for most everything!

That is some gorgeous and magical bokeh! If you don't win with those, you were cheated! The first two are fantastic and the color is wonderful!

Just so you will know I am not dead, banned or otherwise incapacitated.....again....
Gonna be gone a few days...taking a trip out to Big Bend and hoping to get a few shots of the desert in bloom...maybe even a few critters and mountain squirrels?

Loading up this morning for the trip and checking all my gear to make certain I am well equipped. It is a beautiful area, and our 8th trip out to the area. A decent photographer can be delighted there with the many wonderful shooting opportunities. An old squirrel shooter...not so much...but maybe lady luck will smile on me?

Not sure how many of you think the same way... but worth sharing maybe:

I find with a skittish subject, I'll take a "not so ideal, but better than nothing shot from a distance" first, then creep up, take another, and then when I am feeling I have nothing to loose, I go for it and get in as tight as I can.

Phase 2 of this mind set is how I handle birds, with one addition, I'll stealth up to a bird, this can take quite some minutes before they get used to your presence, BUT...my if intent is to get a BIF shot, I'll be ready for when the subject decides he's had enough of me and takes off... snap snap snap.

I know it could be considered a "cheat", and PITA might not approve, but no harm done, and maybe I've actually helped the health of the critter by inducing some cardio aerobic activity. Heh heh.

Snuck up on this busy bee, I think this was as close as I got before he buzzed my ear and let me know I was not welcome.

Glad you are OK. Looking at other people's shots of big bend, it looks like you are in for some pixel shift wide angle heaven! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Bringing your best primes and tripod right?
(... or maybe you could get Frederic to meet you there with the Soligor... )

Have fun!
Eric
