Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!Happy Thursday everyone! Apparently the northern lights have been visible here in Indiana the past two nights and as far south as Tennessee and Alabama. I unfortunately did not know about this until today and it's raining now so I won't be seeing it tonight, if it's still showing anyways. If anyone got photos I'd love to see them. I got out yesterday to try to find some wildlife near a local stream. I saw several wood ducks and this female kingfisher. This is a hefty crop, but a testament to the 1D IV and to the 1.4x tele-converter for maintaining sharpness, even when cropped.
