Made Ya Look.
hahahahaha I knew what it was...lol
Nice little redhead.
Not sure I have even see one.
Or don't remember
Lovely bird, Gary. I've only seen a couple of those in my life and they are eye-popping.
Can we trade lives, please? You seem to have so much more time to shoot than I do.
We seem to have quite a few but getting a good picture seems to be a little difficult. To get the red and the black in bright sun is near impossible.
Clean Barn, turn out horses, feed dogs, Pay bills, make lunch, take a few pictures and start over.
I have not had the chance to see one of these yet. Excellent capture of a beautiful bird.
They are nice We don't seem to have them up here in the mountains. Nice photo Gary.
We have a good quanity of them but you need to have a overcast day to get a good picture. Exposure is critical on them
Appreciate the input.
One of my favorite birds and a nice one at that.
Next time it is sunny and you have a chance to photograph one of these try the "sunny 22" rule. This only works if the bird is front lit with a few exceptions of course.
Beautiful capture. We don't have that particular species here.
OK I'll Bite What is the "Sunny 22 Rule" I haver never been able to get a really good shot of this bird.
I think we have plenty but they are my nemisis to get a really great shot.
Here is a Pair and a lot of tree:
It's really the sunny 16 rule but for white subjects it can be the 22 rule.
The starting point is your shutter speed matches your ISO @ f/22.
ISO - 100
shutter speed = 100
f/stop = 22
Then just adjust everything to give you the same exposure value.
[email protected]/8 will give you the same exposure value as [email protected]/22. Make sense?
What a beauty he/she is too! I think I've seen one of those only 2 times in my life - that I remember! Nice job Gary!
I'll try to remember that because sunny days I just don't take pictures of this bird. I'll give it a try. Normally I shoot at f8 and ISO 400 and anything less than 1/700
I didn't realize they never went west.
Actually, I have no clue if they do or not. Just haven't seen one YET!
Here is a map of their range:
Thanks Gary! Guess it's just a matter of time before I do get lucky and see one. SInce I live in the middle of the city and close to very busy streets, I don't get to see many different birds. I bet next time I go to hagerman Refuge, I may see one!
I hope So!!! If not next time you get to Alabama I'll find you one.
