  1. the dragonflys were handheld and a pita

    how do you get them to look INTO the camera? Dangle a fish?
  2. hate to tell you this but pbase just went down the tubes nothing but RED X's
  3. f'in pbase, just took out the /original, so now they'll look like sh!t.
  4. Hey they still look good the first one is great of course there had to be a osprey shot in the bunch, and no fair sneaking up on those one eyed birds, hope you had a nice picnic
  5. Harris, you don't have to dangle a fish for a osprey, you've got to LOOK like a fish to get his attention! *LOL*
    Excellent captures....
  6. actially the crow has the eye, but musta been blinking for you.

    What lens did you use on the dragon fly? nice shots by the way.
  9. Hey Greg,

    Shot handheld basically with my monopod legs drawn up on the D2H with a 300 f4 and 1.4x. Shoulda pushed the iso so I could stop down, but the little fella was there right then so I fired off some shots. Thanks. They are sharper than pbase allows with a link.
  10. Beautiful shots!! :)  :)

    Nice shots Harris!

    For the Osprey, I think you should get a recorded call that mimics his cry, That'll get his attention! What happened with that flower closeup? Too close for minimum focus? That great white Heron, or whatever he is, could been cropped a touch tighter, imo, but I do like the overall composition.
  12. Re: Nice shots Harris!

    the flower was shot at min focus with wide open lens so dof, the center was infocus on the original. the heron, was already cropped over 50%, very far away. Just thought the purple flowers and the white looked nice.
  13. Very nice series of shots Harris. I always did like dragonfly shots. Well done.
