Squirrel and hawk

9 posts in this topic

Steve's got some aura that makes my equipment go goofy when he's around! The rough legged was hovering on my side of the car, and when I started my burst my camera locked up! He jumped out and started snapping away while I recovered the best I could and got a couple of shots. Canon 40D, 70-200L 2.8:

Still testing the 50D and high ISO's. The squirrel was under thick pine canopy and shadowed well except for a bit on his tail. Canon 50D, 100-400L, ISO 3200 f/5.6 and 1/80th second. The first shot is UNTOUCHED! The second was with NN applied to the background only:

By the way, Steve did make good on his promise on a wolf print from this weekend, and it is VERY nice! grin Thanks Steve!

Well, if my ongoing weak positive electrical charge keeps goofing up your equipment, the least I can do is mollify you with a signed, matted and framed print. gringrin

Ken, that second hawk image is a great pose!

Steve, did you happen to be using his new camera at the time too? I like the second hawk and the second squirrel.

Yes, Ken was using his 40D and 70-200 and I had on his 50D and my 70-200. No need to buy my own gear when I can borrow his, eh? gringringrin

I got a feeling on the next drive you'll be lucky to borrow his 40D with a kit lens grin

Nice shots. Even under thick canopy, the eye of the squirrel looks bright. Of course it helps, that it's so sharp.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
