Very nice Stu, one of your best I think. You retained the details in the whites, great exposure, and sharp. Great work!

I honestly think this is the best chickadee photo I have ever seen!! Everything is perfect, the background, the light, the composition. Great job!

Thank you both! Dan, IYO, do you feel such sharpness comes from the capabilities of the 50D? I could never seem to get really sharp imagery with the 10D. I like the 10, it was a great camera to learn with, but I don't think there's any doubt about the 50D and its ability.

First off I would give much of the credit to the photographer. Good equipment certainly can make your job easier but you still have to make the correct decisions and snap the photo.

The 50D is no doubt helping your cause, more pixels to work with ALO capabilities and honestly some lens/camera combinations work well together. Keep in mind you also have micro focus adjustments available to you as well should you feel you need it.

So yes, equipment helps but I think more credit goes toward the one taking the photo, especially in this case. smile

That is a great image Stu! I agree with Dan that it is one of if not your best that I've seen. Everything about it says wallhanger!

Very nice Stu! Exposure tack on, which isn't easy on chickadee cheeks in sunlight! Good color as well!

What a pose, you caught him or her warming up one foot. The whites are great. I like the 80/20 rule and 80% of that image was the photographer!

In the good old days the camera was the box that held the film. Today the camera is the film.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
