Good job getting those images, Jonny! They seem to be a bit underexposed... anyway to lighten them up?

Yup the lighting certainly wasn't the greatest yesterday...grey, overcast, windy!....images were taken at about 75 yards or so not much that the cameras flash will do on those yardages...maybe a flash from a bolt of lightning! grin.gif...here's the same loon image untouched so you can see I "altered" it a bit....well,maybe alotta "bit" grin.gif...the "Bills" were taken out even farther away...

to me, those 'bills look like they have a purple sheen on their heads, if that's the case then they would be lesser scaup.

I am definately no bird expert, but I think that Amish is right. I believe they are lesser scaup, I have seen many of those in my area... Awesome shots nontheless!

    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
