Really superb images, Glenn. Beautifully rendered from edge to edge. Could you remind us what kind of post you do to balance the lighting and white balance? I'd love to attempt a similar process. Bracketing helps for sure, but your light balance and sharpness are incomparable.
Nice, my wife has helped 20+ or so come along in the last 2 years. Make sure you have more milkweed in your nursery. That is their food source. Look for the chrysalis to appear and then about 10 days later hatching. Once they hatch give them a couple of hours to get their wings. Good luck!
This is more of a tree than a bush that my wife planted in our garden several years ago next to a butterfly shrub. Her master gardener colleagues said it would attract butterflies. Seems like a home run this year. We counted over 9 at one time!
D7200 w/300pf and 1.7 TC
Great shots. I know how hard it is to get good sharp shots of hummingbirds. The colors are great. You have similar environment to our garden, lots of bee balm and colors hummers prefer. Good backgrounds too.

Damn, that is sad! What ever happened to common sense?!
My mom grew up on other side of Broad Mt in Weatherly. I’ve been on the trail many years ago in my teens and 20s. We used to ride the fire trails too. It’s beautiful country. You did well making it up and capturing the scenery.
I still have the FE2 my dad bought for us in 1978 with its 50m 1.4. Since then I added an F3HP and 35 1.4 , 50 1.2 and venerable 105 2.5 I plan on keeping those for occasional film but mainly nostalgia. The lenses get attached to the D810 once in awhile.
Back to doing more photography. Shooting from a back window the birds that come to one of the feeders. Unfortunately, I have these pesty squirrels gorging themselves....but what can you do!
Comparing the 80-400 vs new 300 PF. I don't think the zoom is that sharp or renders colors as well...
It is so 'dainty' with my 7200. I can't get over it! The lighting wasn't so great but these colors do pop more than the AFS. I shot that lens just prior to trading in. The dealer asked me if mine squeaked, so i shot 100 pix or so before I sold it. :) I had the AFD too and really...
I traded in a 300 AFS yesterday (and some other unused stuff) for this little thing. Shooting through my back window to our feeder, and I can say is Wow! Sharp, fast and vibrant! Can't wait to get to better weather.
The lens takes the 1.7 TC pretty well. I didn't get the bird in fully.
Wow, Mike this is truly a full labor of love. I think you may get better advice from the forums at www.audiokarma.com there a sub topics for tape and DIY - which you may need to help resolve that issue. Good luck hopefully comes your way!
damn, I was going to say all is well that ends well until I just checked back in......tut tut.
Did you unplug the deck and look for how the mechanical part of the door works? Generally, there are 4 to 6 screws holding the cover. Since its your friend's, you may want to wait to get it back...
That is about 50% higher output voltage. FWIW, we have my wife's old Technics M231x around. You are welcome to try this out before you buy. It works but I have never tried to record off a tape player. I am out Rt 7 just past Loudoun Cty line.
I don't think there is an amp in any cassette deck.
The relevant #s are
Output Impedance Line Out: 22 kΩ
Output Sensitivity Line Out: 420 mV
Cd players typically have 2v output.
Try to stop by Brett at HIFI Heaven. Perhaps you can chat with him or at least try another deck or buy one of...
'Those are very cool shots! Looks like fun and hope most of the damage is easily repairable. My mom's side of the family is from outside Hazleton. Lots of fire roads and areas like this for off-roading.
Mike - in terms of the loudness of the CD player vs the cassette, it could be output voltage is higher on the CD player. In some cases there are attenuators on CD players. There may also be an impedance mismatch. Good luck!
And per Jacques points, I've own(ed) several M4/3rds since 2010. Different horses for different courses. I did an upgrade from XT1 to 2 after the 3 was launched. I have an OMD-EM5 with a decent set of lenses I need to move they Oly set at some point....
Were you there for Diwali? I bet that would have been something to see and photograph. Nice selection of shots, John. This looks to be down near the Gateway of India? I am sure you have a great many more to post
That is a very nice set, Mike. My parents lived in Canandaguia well before my birth when my father was a surveyor for the USGS. I recall them saying this was their favorite place on their journey of 36 locations in a span of 8 years while he was mapping.
