Backyard Attempts

Even though there wasn't much of any light to work with,I enjoy using the new lens so much I just take it out and shoot it even in poor conditions.

I couldn't get close to anything but plants and Finches!

The images are all from the Canon 30D,70-200 F2.8L IS @AV 2.8 Various Time Values. Extremely small amount of PP.

Buds from the Crabapple trees I planted last weekend

Iowa's state bird-too far away!

Finally,this is one of the reasons I love this lens-not much for comp,but this is a 100% center crop!! A little grainy of course,but I was suprised how it looked!

Those look great! I'm really glad you like the 70-200mm! Especially the f2.8 is where it becomes very handy in low light!

Really liked the 4th one. Very nice! Sharp! \:\)

Gotta love them finches. Even though the first one was "too far away", I really like it as an environmental shot. Although close up shots are nice, there are times I prefer to see the bird in it's surroundings, like this time.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
