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.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
