Great Egret

7 posts in this topic

Wish I could have gotten closer, but the mud was getting the better of me. Beautiful bird is the Great Egret. The white just blows out and these were taken on a cloudy day!

Mike the shots are very nice but if you would pull them into Photoshop and fix the whites I think your shots would be great. I took your first one and worked with the whites and was able to get out the detail in the wings.You should be able to get a better picture using the original.

Thanks all, Jim I'll try that. I'm still pretty weak in Photoshop but I learn a little more each week.

Don't be afraid to try stuff in Photoshop. The only thing to remember is to save it as a copy so you will always have the original to go back to some other day as your skills get better. I have been able to go back to shots I took years ago and fix my mistakes. Heck I am still making them and fixing them today grin

I am not sure what version you have but Scott Kelby has a book for just about everyone with easy to follow instructions on how to do almost everything.

The last image is serene and lovely, I enjoy the lush surroundings and the calm water.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there. 
    • Mostly commenting this "sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests" but I do love it when people assume I am somehow D or R because I make a comment against their beloved party.
       
    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.  
    • This summer?   Seems like a long time.  Are you sure this guy knew what he was doing?     Freezing may or may not kill the parasite.     From CDC.  Freezing wild game meats, unlike freezing pork products, may not effectively kill all worms because some worm species that infect wild game animals are freeze-resistant.
