Racoon and a hawk

10 posts in this topic

Hey all:

The rough-legged hawk was from today when Ken and I were bombing around together, the coon from a couple days ago when I was closing down the family cabin near Bemidji.

I like them both, but especially the coon. You can really see the color of his eyes. But, is that a booger coming out of his right nostril? smirk

Mike, it's a sunflower seed heart. He's clinging to a red pine about four feet above a bird feeder. smilesmile

Sunflower seed... I'll have to remember that one. Boy that 50D sure takes perty pictures, and it looks like it doesn't jam up either. But, seriously those are some really nice photos. I definitely like the coon, even with the "booger"

The hawk was with the 50D, the raccoon with the 30D. All the bodies I've use so far take pretty pictures. winkwink

It's no prob. I wasn't correcting your spelling. smilesmile

And I wasn't acknowledging the pat you gave yourself. wink

Although these days you may be making a fair statement and I have a long way to go to get there.

It wasn't a pat, yak. If it came across that way, my fault there. Simply pointing out that the sensors on all the DSLRs out there can produce great quality.

Well, you should pat yourself on the back every now and then. You do fine work. We all try to post our best work, and you have been practicing long enough that your best work is always a step above. Besides NASA has never called me with any interest, but NG at has talked you.

Sorry, that sarcasm doesn't type well. I know the camera has little to do with the work after all I often post shots from my point and shoot.

Anyway back to the serious stuff. I do like the lighting you got on the Raccoon even though he has a "booger."

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
