What bird is the state bird for 7 different US states?  (the most of any US state) 

spoiler....Northern Cardinal

(second place - Western Meadowlark)

a N. Cardinal on a country road eyeing a dead worm. 

FYI...when you see a cardinal, look around, it's spouse is almost always very near.

Went for a swim at Padang Padang yesterday, found the waves not too bad at all. This is some of what I captured while I was there. Loving my 1DX, 35mm and LiquidEye housing.

Nirmala...AWESOME is the only word that i can use to describe your photos!

This thread has been a good reminder...

Freshly washed in warm water and a drop of mild dish soap....double rinse...sun dry.

so you get an awesome workout and you get to take some photos, good combo!

NCAC Track at Oberlin College 5-2 and 5-3-14:

good shots bdun...i like the long jumper the best.

on a shot like this can you could get down on the field and position yourself at the back of the pit...or is it not allowed by the officials?

One question that begs to be answered:
With so many "professionally" used cleaning aids, what would lens and lens filter manufacturers recommend?  And would they make cleaning kits for their products?  And what would they recommend as a technique to prevent wear and tear of the nanocoatings on the optical surfaces?
We could all use some of the manufacturers' insight, instead of trying an unproven method.

I've always used a rocket blower or microfiber cloth as my first choice, my breath plus microfiber cloth second choice.

Here's your answer lionrock....from the NY times article linked below...

"I spoke to Steve Heiner, the senior technical manager at Nikon, for advice on lens cleaning"...

" Start by blowing as much dust away as you can with air...the preferred product is a squeeze bulb"

"Friendly fibers. In most cases all you need is a good lens cloth. They are now made of microfiber, but get a good one"

"A perfectly good substitute for light cleaning is “a good huff of breath across the lens,” said Mr. Heiner"
