Impressive, they could have a camouflage competition with the Nighthawks.

A Badger, don't see those . . . . ever! Look forward to you getting some shots of it in the daylight.

I went to visit my sister in Alaska.

Some call them weeds, some call them desert wildflowers but each spring some of the bushes that look like all the other bushes decide to show that they are different and unique and not just a muted sage green color.

Found this fellow at a local bird sanctuary (or rather a fancy reclaimed water plant) running around.


This Egret was creeping in the reeds just outside of a Black Crowned Night Heron roost

The Heron tried to swoop on the Egret once it moved. If only my shutter speed had been a little faster

There were a bunch of these Grebes that always look like they just woke after a long night of drinking

Here is one I'd never seen before. Phainopepla is the name. This male kept it's distance and these are substantial crops

Birding lens

Generally speaking the longer lens you have the smaller the birds are that you see or the farther they stay away from you. It's apparently common knowledge within the feathered ranks. They are actively working to nullify any competitive advantage you hope to gain with the items you add to your virtual shopping cart.

Thanks @desertscape the 700mm+ f5.6 doesn't sound like a bad idea.

While I'm sure this is not the most convenient lens to use, I really wonder how it performs relative to sharpness and colors with digital cameras, how bad is the purple fringing?

I took apart a sigma manual focus prime lens to investigate the Ricoh pin. Now that I'm trying to put the lens mount back on the lens I can't seem to get the arms of the aperture mechanism to line up internally. There is a longer aperture arm that goes down into the lens and it interacts with the aperture blade mechanism and those two don't seem to be getting along.
There was one hiccup. One of the tension wires popped out while I had some of the screws out. I didn't take a reference picture in the beginning so I think I have back in the right place though I could be wrong on that as well. I was just happy to find it after it came out.
Any suggestions are appreciated!!

I speed up when I see them on the ground in grocery store parking lots scavenging. The pigeons have resorted to faking injuries, broken feet, pulled wing muscles and such to get sympathy handouts from people since the grackles beat them to all the trash. Any good "birding" session here should be started with 30 minutes of pellet gun practice on the grackles so you can make room for any other species to make an appearance. The damn things eat food out of your golf cart while you are standing on the tee box trying to hit your shot.

More of this, here in this thread!! I didn't even realize we were at a full moon until I went outside last night to get something out of my car and boom there it was! I'm going to try to get out tonight if I can afford to procrastinate some other stuff.
