Gotta Get 'Em Before the Squirrels

I was trying to lure a chickadee or nuthatch to the deck railing thinking I could still get a fairly natural looking environment. Look who came to breakfast, the little thief. A little sun would have been nice. This is a bit of an experiment. It was quick processed in my basic EOS browser, as I have for all but the last post which was in the Photography Forum. If I would take it to Photoshop to do highlights and shadows, despeckle or tighten the eye I am not able to get a preview, and my post would only show an url, at least on my monitor. Is it because I crop in one program and process in another? It loads to Flickr just fine, and processed this way, it popped right up in the preview.

Did you upload the new version of your photo? The program you use will have no bearing on the ability to post your picture. If you want to post the new version on here go ahead and I will take a look at the post and see why it is not showing up.

I'm no expert on photo quality, but it looks fine to me. Amazing how much stuff one of those blue jays can put in their mouth at one time. Counted 5 kernels of corn one of the local talent flew off with the other day.

Oops! Sorry, I have been away from the computer. I tried the Photoshop version last night and this morning first. I just got the 'preview loading' message. After ten minutes I shut it down without submitting. Same thing happened with the stellar jay, but I did submit that one. The photo showed up on my monitor the next day. I figured someone fixed it for me? I knew I had been able to submit normally before--retirement shouldn't have fogged the brain that badly! Then I realized I hadn't Photoshopped before so I gave this version a try--no problem. Thanks--I'll try it on another photo and see what happens.

Thank you! Don't know that I'm able to tell much difference and it sure is a lot easier. By the way, I have just come to realize what a gem we have in you with your Fencelines. Didn't know if I could respond to the column so I will tell you here.

Birdsong, fell free to reply to Dotch right in the column thread. Helps him know his writing isn't falling on deaf ears. If others are like me, we read each one but often don't comment. I'm sure Dotch sometimes feels like he's shouting into the wilderness. gringringrin

And nice jay!

For sure, always feel free to comment Birdsong, good or bad. It sometimes gives me direction if/when I've strayed off into the rhubarb. If I could display a fraction of the talent some of the photograpers here do including Steve and yourself, I would be dangerous. Appreciate all the kind words here in addition to those I receive on the streets of Bugtussle from the Bugtusslians. grin

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
