Racoon.  It's What's for Dinner...  ;D

Lived in a small Kansas town for several years where the only Chinese restaurant for many miles was owned by some Koreans. Their English was only fair. I love the appetizer "crab Rangoon" and they had it on their menu, where it was listed as "crab racoon". For several years I always got that whenever I ate there. It tasted like crab....I hope it was just a misprint. :o

Nonac..love that cardinal shot..excellent !

Here's my first capture of a Phainopepla (<say that 5x fast :)


Phainopepla by Revup67, on Flickr

What was cool about this event is a fellow birder had his iPhone.  we quickly ID'd the bird, looked him up on Birdseye and started the bird call.  The bird actually began responding and creating a conversation of sorts with the iPhone.  He was intrigued enough so he also flew closer to our location so we could get up close shots..it was incredible to witness this as I had not before.
Not only can I not say Phainopepla 5 times, I can hardly say it one!  I've never seen this bird before, I need too though!  Really nice Rev!
revup67 the photos you share are great! (that does not mean the photographs you do not share are not...)

Thanks Kernuak. We don't have birds like that in Hawaii. :)

Red Tailed Hawk.  Photographed this past week with my 5D Mark iii, 100-400 4.5-5.6 L IS, ISO 640.  Cropped, brightened, contrast increased slightly and shadows lightened slightly for effect.
