Here's a great egret from a couple weeks ago lit by late evening setting sunlight. The bird looks like it is about to lose a feather.

Beautiful light in your picture. Very nice shot.

+1 :)

Not best shot... but I like this. It was taken with a Powershot SX50 HS

@215mm that's a 35mm equivalent of 1200mm ! 


The lack of DR is evident... but I am not complaining for the price. again, great value, this much reach and IS, for less than $500.

That looks great...especially for a P&S camera @1200mm equivalent.

Same picture with 2 different PP. Which one do you prefer?

The second one got my vote. Beautiful colors in your sky.

Same here.

"This squirrel thing is cute,.... and I haven't really seen many answers still as to why this person was banned."

Obviously, it was because he didn't like squirrels ;D

No offense offence intended.  It appears my attempt at humour may have fallen apartment flat.
Hmm I believe spelling differences are becoming the centre er ... center of this thread  ;D

This is one of the most Intellgent Useful Threads I ever read in my life.
BTW, I told my Australian English (*) teacher that the British pronounciation of "director" is different from the American one but she denied.
According to wordreference, I am right.

Going back to the topic, the lowest eligible IQ number should be the square root of 2 imho.

Footnotes (Useful for low-IQ members)
(*) I don't mean I'm being taught how to speak English in Australia: I mean a teacher coming from Australia who teaches me English - in Italy).

So,...  that would make her your Italian Australian English teacher :)

more important.. where does he work?
it´s seems he is 24/7 online here.... must be not a very time intensive job.  ;D

i wish i had that much spare time.  :(

Who knows. Except for the occasional lapse in spelling, he's a smart dude. I've seldom had reason to doubt his advice, and when he has an opinion on something I stop to make sure I'm thinking through my own correctly. Ignore his comments at your own peril, but you're not going to find better free advice anywhere else.

Totally agree...and sarcasm that is often entertaining.
I think he works in Bean Town (Boston)

"The winters are so cold that the red Squirrels have learned to fly over the snow...."
Don Haines...that's really funny ;D
Winters are warm in Hawaii but we have no squirrels here  :'(

I remember a quote from the comedian Groucho Marx..." I don’t care to belong to any club (Forum) that will have me as a member"  :o

Here is a shot I have been working on all day with the 100L

Para todos los Venezolanos 2 by CastilloPhotoDesign, on Flickr

Cool 8)

All's well that ends well :)

BTW...what's a "Cheque"? ;D

Up here in Canada, a "Cheque" is a promissory note, and a "Check" is deliberate bodily contact, as is "Check him into the boards" in a hockey game.... If a large person runs towards you, better hope they intend the former, not the latter...

LOL...well played, sir ;D

Today my heron friend, as usual, is waiting on the chain link fence staring at my front door. He often sits there at suppertime for several hours till I get home or come out to help him get dinner. This time he scores another big one very quickly within several minutes.
