Danedlion' a different light.

4 posts in this topic

Decided to have yet another go at the dandelions, only this time in a different light.

Taken with my Canon 70-200, 1:2.8L IS series. Very impressive lens, however when it comes to shooting many nature pic's such as birds or wildlife in general, it's simply to short on range... My next purchase will be the 100-400 for sure!

Sweet work, Stu. The second one in particular is a great statement of light.

Also, the 70-200 makes a sweet macro-style lens if you buy a set of Kenko extension tubes (about $150). The three tubes, either all of them or some of them in combination, push the lens farther out from the camera, allowing it to focus much more closely than before. Because they are hollow they have no impact on image quality like a TC does. You lose the ability to focus on things farther out when the tubes are mounted.

    • O.T.C. - Have whoever hunts there every year go to court and obtain a harassment restraining order against the guy. It's clearly harassing behavior, and the court will probably issue the order. Given the fact that he is shooting onto your land while hunters are sitting out there in the trees, you might be able to obtain an order for protection against him. If he violates the OFP, the cops can arrest him. This might be the best way to get law enforcement involved. The judge has the power to fashion the order so he can do his target shooting outside the deer hunting season. The judge can even order that the guy not possess firearms.
    • Always been a spring bobber guy but did fish last year with a noodle style rod and was impressed.  Recommendations for $50 and under?
    • They are fricken scared to death. Obama's a troll, Hillary is a got dam assassin. She has 25 yrs of pent up grudges........and it's payback time.
    • Can you actually read anything and parse out content on your own or are you lmited to  getting all your information from chain emails?  At times it looks like you are actually trying and then you throw out a gem like this.
    • This is getting us back on Hillary being crooked.
    • How is a post about a Republicans view on media bias against Trump getting us back on the subject of Hillary Clinton being crooked?         
    • I personally would like to see a one deer per hunter per year policy. No party hunting. You kill one = your done. State wide. Each hunter gets a "deer license" similar to how they do it in the western states. Archery season starts in September and runs through the ends of October. Then a 1-week break. Followed by a 2 week rifle season, a 2-week break, and finishing up with a 2-week muzzle loader season in December. Your "deer" tag gets you into all 3-seasons. But you only get 1-deer.    The reason your idea won't work was stated, by you, earlier. You want to hold out for a 3.5year old buck, but you are willing to shoot a 2.5year old with your bow. You can't have it both ways. Kill him young and he won't get old.    MN has multiple problems. And one of the biggest is the "I get to" "I want to" mentality if it's hunters. I want to shoot the biggest deer of my life every year. And I should get to shoot two of them. This isn't reality TV or a hunting show.
