On photo Female Costas in the High speed photography challenge (1 comment in total)

Nice capture, Good job in spreading out the light evenly. The colors in the bird and the desert willow flower stand out nicely.
All the hummingbird shots in the challenge received a large amount of low votes. I think a certain number of voters felt that hummingbird shots aren't the type of high speed photography they prefer. Had I realized this before I probably wouldn't have entered mine. I hope you can use your shot in another challenge.

Don't bother, it was sarcasm.

That's an amazing shot, and looks like it took much effort to set up.

On photo Butterfly eye in flight in the High speed photography challenge (2 comments in total)

Great Capture. Getting a Butterfly-In-Flight shot this sharp is very difficult and you really nailed it.

I suspect there was a mix of voters that were sandbagging and others that felt this challenge was more suited to droplets or things exploding at moment of impact. That's OK I just hope that the great high speed nature shots in the challenge can be used again for a different challenge.

In reply to:

MichaelIsGreat4: Strange to call it rufous when it does not look red at all! It looks more like brown or brown-orange.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture. One of my favorite birds.

Thank You. The Rufous male is one of my favorites also.

On photo Oh Baby You Know What I like! in the Our Sense of Touch (Nature) challenge (6 comments in total)

Very Nice capture. Great detail on both birds.
I was kind of surprised that you used the Tamron 150-600. If I remember you use Canon prime telephoto lenses. What do you think of the Tamron?

In reply to:

RC3: Absolutely a stunning photo! Guess it's a lot of work AND luck behind it. This is one of the best shots I've seen during the last 12 month, at least.. Congrats!

Thank You very much. I have been at it for some time so I've slowly improved. I hope to get 1 or 2 good ones out of one session, but that doesn't always happen.

In reply to:

luirod: Great shot. How is the quality of the Tamron SP 200-500mm lens?

Thank You.
I think the 200-500 is very good when you have good lighting. I hardly ever used it in overcast conditions. I sold mine after buying the Tamron 150-600, but I don't see the new lens as being vastly better than the 200-500.

On photo Wolf or Coyote in the Yellow Stone Wild Life challenge (3 comments in total)

It looks like it is either a large coyote or possibly a "Coywolf" when a wolf mates with a coyote.

lim yau tong: Can we submit multiple as there are few responses.

I second that,but I wonder if it's possible once the challenge is underway.

In reply to:

VincentKV: Number 10 should not have been included as it will make some viewers desire to have such anti-nature objects in their homes.

I feel the same way, I don't think it should have been picked to be in a category with nature shots of live animals/birds/insects. It makes me wonder if the DPR staff that picked the categories/shots really can appreciate wildlife photography.

Why would you get this over the Tamron? The USB dock, or you had bad luck with Tamron, and you are sworn off buying Tamron. What are the odds that it is optically superior to the Tamron when the Tamron and the S version are close in optics now? I wonder how many of these will be manufactured and what kind of availability will there be.
