I think Northstar might be a bit of a bird brain!  ;)

Observed, but couldn't catch it ( :(), a muskrat harassing ducks, I swear just for the fun of it -was pretty cute.

Don't have any bird shots of late as I had to vacate my stool.  ;)

That was a very funny photo of the moose looking at your vacated seat. And they say that laughter is the best medicine. ;)

I finally took the time to microadjust my 300mm 2.8 lens using the trusty yardstick/fluorescent tape method...here's a couple 800 px crops





As well as the litter collecting abilities of a GBH...gotta love the M&M candies.

Thanks all!

Cool Moa!  The roosters always seem to have the brightest colors.  I've seen some 'imports' on farms before, apparently a larger business than I would have thought.

Nice Tern, Click.  Now the terning puns....

Don Haines, really cool reflection in the water.  I need to take the SX50 out for a spin instead of lugging one of the gargantuan twins along.  Do you use a bag/housing or just say it's cheap enough to replace?

Believe it or not Northstar, I'm about 15 minutes east of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, not exactly in the wild but you know how it is with moose and deer, a little bush and they'll venture there.  I had a moose looking in my bedroom window once (I live on 3 acres).  :)  Usually just mamas and young ones, not trophies.

It's kind of cool when the focus shifts for a bit away from birds especially when the birds just aren't showing up!  That's about the only time I wished I had less lens.
