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!

Other than needing a little "shadows and highlights" adjusting, that's a very nice shot.

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

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
