  • Replied in Thanks Milt
    I've always followed the thread, even when I wasn't out shooting and have always appreciated your shots of birds I don't get to see like the Tri-Colored Herons, the Spoonbills, and the Anhiingas. I ...
  • Instead of just pulling the Pbase address from the URL bar I did the right-click on the image and copied the properties. Using that these are now the correct size I intended for web viewing. ...
  • As promised, here are some of the shots that turned out to be the BCNH palooza. More than the 5 per post request but it was a palooza. All E30 and Bigma. All but the last handheld. I've not only ...
  • Strange, I started saving them at a slightly larger size as more people have larger monitors now. Still, not so big they can be printed but they are uploaded to Pbase at 1024X768 now. It also ...
  • I finally got out to do some shooting. I started to post last week some stuff from the archives but it looked like Pbase and DP were having some issues. It took me ten refreshes to see Richard's ...
  • I went through an old directory I had not processed. It turns out that was a pretty good day. All taken at the Riparian Preserve in Gilbert AZ. All with E30 and Bigma and cropped fairly hard. Landing ...
  • A hummingbird on a Fouquieria macdougalii at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. E30 with Mk1 50-200 and EC14
  • Not macro but close ups of butterflies in a very nice indoor exhibit in Arizona called Butterfly Wonderland. All E30 with 50-200MkI and EC14. Handheld. I would have preferred to use the FL-50 with ...
  • Easily the Ghetto cam, the E300. Because it didn't have a hump people dismissed it as a SLR. I took a lot of nice photos with that camera.
  • Thanks for the comments everyone. I knew these birds were fairly accepting of humans being around them but I didn't think he would be that brave. I think I could have walked up to him with an ...
  • These little guys are a threatened species here in Arizona. Housing development has been taking their habitat away. Now developers have to go look to see if any of these are on their projects and ...
  • Replied in AZ Egrets
    Thanks Richard. When there is a lot of activity with these guys I set the camera to -.7 EV. It still seems to blow the whites on these guys though. I generally use center weighted metering, when I ...
  • Replied in AZ Egrets
    Some egrets from the 12/28/12 shoot. E30 and Bigma handheld. Most cropped to some degree. All the best, hope to have the last of 2012 for next week.
  • This guy was sitting on a branch sticking up from the water and feeling fine. Then someone else landed and they seemed to get into an argument about the seating arrangements. After the brief spat, ...
  • I have gone through the search function at whatbird.com and can't come to a positive ID on these guys. The variability of the complete or broken white ring around the eye throws me for being ...
  • I've been absent from posting for some time. Life can get in the way of the things we want to do and force the things we have to do. That seems to have resolved itself recently so I hope to get ...
  • Replied in Shar Pei? n.t.
