  • Not long winded at all. I find that local Florida stuff very interesting. Thanks for sharing it. Any Snow Blower info? I can help you out. :) Ken
  • Very funny and interesting at the same time. See... even your Cranes are happier then ours up here. :) You certainly where alert. Timing couldn't have been better. Good set. If you change the times ...
  • Thanks pattypat4455. Its always nice to hear amazing. Many others here post amazing shots, but I am still working up to that. :) Welcome to the forum, I hope you find it fun and informative. Ken
  • Nice shot. Good and sharp, especially for the shutter speed. Nice unique pose too. Colors and background are great.  I envy you as I have not been able to get any Hummer shots away from the feeder ...
  • Replied in Morning rush
    Very heart warming to see the young innocently following their mother. (I assume it's their mother.) Very good low point of view that adds a little humor. One aspect of skill, could be ... ...
  • Capturing bird images, still, or in flight, is not normally an easy cheap point and shoot process. Its takes practice, a decent lens, and camera. On the up side it can be really a lot of fun. It ...
  • Thanks Doc for the kind comments on the eye idea, coming from you that means a lot. The eyes idea came from the frustration of coming home empty handed. :) I have browsed many wild life posts but ...
  • Thank You capture22 By the looks of your posted birds and BIF, you do know what its like to sit and wait, and then wait some more. I like your Osprey posts. Like many others here, your posts ...
  • Thanks for viewing and your kind comments. I would have liked all of them to be as detailed as the third image. I really need to try harder at getting closer. A longer lens is on my wish list. ...
  • Very well explained. My thoughts also, but you put into words way better then I could have. Like you explained. Third party lenses can be very good or better them OEM, but we have to except the ...
  • Thanks for the kind reply. I remember your 4th of July post. The Red White and Blue one. Very apropreit not to mention the high quality BIF also. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53968740 Some ...
  • Looks like your getting the 150-600 mastered. The last one is my favorite. Thanks for sharing your results mounted on your Canon 70D with the exif data intact too. This lens is on many peoples ...
  • Replied in Humming Bird
    Nice work. Humming birds are tough like any BIF, but have the added challenge because of their size. They are almost insect like. Thanks for posting it. Ken
  • A really nice shot. You and your 60D handled the difficult dynamic range of the white Egret really well. The timing was perfect. Really nice background too. BIF are one of the hardest shots to get ...
  • Replied in Terns
    Can't belive how few responses some of these postings are receiving lately.. Your BIF is great.  Most don't no how hard it is to capture a BIF until they try it for themselves. White birds can be ...
  • Nice shot. The background, the log, the flowers, all make the ideal setting for the white bird to stand out. Thanks for sharing. Ken
  • Great, you are on the right track. Hint: The IS on the 100-400 is old school. Just like me. :) So you need to let it spin up. When you go to take your shot, hold the shutter button half pressed, ...
  • Created discussions The Eyes Have It
    A while back I went looking to practice BIF. Well it was a lean BIF day. While deleting more images then I want to admit, I noticed some where hard to delete. It seems like some of the bird's eyes ...
  • Here is a link to the 1.4 TC II reviews from Amazon customers. I filtered the search to find "100-400". I did a search on the 1.4 TC III but no beneficial reviews showed up. http://www.amazon.com/g ...
  • Dolica seems to have nailed down the main purpose of what a tripod is needed to do first and foremost. Vibration control. It's vibration was nulled in .6 sec while the others took longer.
