    Nothing to complain about this weekend. Weather was great (hot), my buddy got his new Machine Gun (thank goodness :smile: ), the birdies were obliging (a RTH posed for us for over an hour), I met some fine folks and some heavy hitters (photo wise :wink:) .

    So without further ado here's a sampling of what I captured

    Look Ma no legs :biggrin:


    I guess I could complain about not catching any fishing, but I won't :smile:

    the look is deceiving, cause he really likes me :rolleyes: 

    a side note this is the 1st time I've used Kelvin instead of presets for WB, and I am very happy with the latest update firmware, it really did improve AF!

    Hi Ben

    You guys down there in CA are LUCKY!

    Most of all the birds up here in New England are now gone for the next 5 months, except for the gulls and crows of course.

    Sooner or later one or two owls and an eagle will show up but that's about all we'll get for the rest of the winter...and it certainly isn't going to be hot up here any time soon!

    As always.....your shots invoke jealousy from me :) 
  3. Excellent as always and I echo Jim's comments as far as lack of cooperative targets up here, keep them coming please so I can live my wildlife fantasies through you!

    Hi Jim
    You know I would trade all my birdies for a photo shoot or two with Owls and Eagles any day of the week and twice on Sundays
    :biggrin: :biggrin: :wink:

    Look forward to seeing yours when they arrive and thank you for enjoying my work.
  7. Geez where do you find these birds....

    Sharp well exopsed great poses of the RTH...

    I just went to Sepulveda basin yesterday afternoon to try somethings out and see how they worked...
  8. Wonder if the administrators would consider the ability to have canned remarks. Get kind of tired of constantly saying "Great shots!", "Super Sharp", yada yada. But that seems to be what I'm always saying on yours! You da man!!
  9. Yep, I think Brett (Helmet) and I need to hang out with you more often..:biggrin: :eek:

    Come on Kevin don't get tired, heck I never tire of the "yada, yada's"

    There is a down side (have you had this happen yet) since coming to the Cafe my yield has actually gone down. In that I mean shots I would have lived with before no longer will do. The Cafe has made me (happily) work very hard at elevating my skill in both camera and post work!

    So with that you are all "Da Men and Women" and thank you! :wink:
