    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.
     
  4. Thanks Gale

    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.

    OK

    Clean Barn, turn out horses, feed dogs, Pay bills, make lunch, take a few pictures and start over.

  7. Thanks Jimmy

    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
     
  8. Thanks Lou

    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.
     
  10. Beautiful capture. We don't have that particular species here.
     
  11. OK I'll Bite What is the "Sunny 22 Rule" I haver never been able to get a really good shot of this bird.
     
  12. Thanks Alex

    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.

    200@f/16
    400@f/11
    800@f/8
    1600@f/5.6

    800@f/8 will give you the same exposure value as 100@f/22. Make sense?
     
  14. 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!
     
  15. 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
     
  16. Thanks Dianne

    I didn't realize they never went west.
     
  17. Actually, I have no clue if they do or not. Just haven't seen one YET!
     
  18. 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!
     

  19. I hope So!!! If not next time you get to Alabama I'll find you one.
