  • Created discussion thread Sniffer
    I was sitting on the floor in the living room putting photo equipment in my bag, when suddenly the dog (or rather The Dog) approached and started sniffing the camera. One thing led to another, and ...
  • Replied in Remote
    Amazon sells AODELAN remote controls for P1000, P950, etc. They are less expensive than original Nikon devices (which Amazon sells, too), and, honestly, they look far better than original ones. Hav ...
  • The chipmunk is extremely cute! Definitely my favorite.
  • Replied in Remote
    You can use Bluetooth ML-L7 remote instead...
  • There's no copyright. I signed a release, and now it's a public domain picture. I know better ways of making money than exploiting owls. :-D
  • Thank you, all, very much for your kind comments. Augustin's comment reminded me that many years ago (around 2006, to be specific), there were a couple of years when burrowing owls ( Athene cunicularia
  • Created discussion thread Bubo virginianus...
    ...a.k.a. great horned owl. Sibley describes this bird as widespread, but uncommon. (He refers to North America.) I guess I was lucky...
  • Replied in a tough test
    You may laugh, but I really like the saturated colors of the first picture.
  • Replied in A pirate
    Are you sure that it was a spider that bit you? 1. It is almost impossible to tell a spider bite from an insect bite--unless you see the spider biting you and know that it was really the spider. 2. ...
  • Created discussion thread A pirate
    I was not sure whether I should post this picture or not: after all, it's just another spider... But there are two interesting things about it, so I finally decided to post it. You can always ...
  • I browsed through the pictures, and they’re a-m-a-z-i-n-g !!! Hats off !
  • #1 and #2 are my favorite ones. Beautiful pictures and beautiful colors. In the Bay Area it’s mostly green at this time of the year... Okay, it’s mostly green at ANY time of the year.  :-D -- Darius
  • Created discussion thread Coyote bush
    Coyote bush (or, as some call it, coyote brush), a shrub common in my area, is like dandelion, only on much bigger scale. For those who are not familiar with it, in the fall it gets covered with ...
  • Not THAT recent. Almost two weeks. After I found it, I was thinking: how come that nobody has noticed it and spread the word around? That's why I thought I had missed the post announcing it.
  • Created discussion thread P1000 f/w update
    I apologize in advance if somebody already posted the news, and I missed it. Nikon released update 1.3 for P1000. If this is old news (i.e., somebody did post it before), please let me know and I ...
  • Hmmm... I remember reading somewhere that P900 does not have the BSI sensor. It was a long time ago (very soon after I bought P1000), and I don’t really remember the source. Since I cannot back up ...
  • I believe this statement is incorrect. P900 uses a standard CMOS sensor, while P1000 uses a BSI sensor (backside illumination). The latter one has slightly higher sensitivity in comparison to the ...
  • What I love in your posts is that you not only present superb quality pictures of birds, but also provide Latin names and mention interesting facts about the life of out feathered friends. In ...
  • Replied in P950 At Work
    I know. But sometimes it’s hard to pass on such an opportunity. Life is too serious to treat it seriously. :-D
  • Replied in P950 At Work
    Pleasing composition, great bokeh, amazing sharp details. What's important, no cropping! What do you mean: "quite" ?!!! :-D It's a great picture!
