    Happy Thursday everyone! The heat has let off for a bit here in Indiana; today was only 91 (but less humid), which actually felt pleasant compared to last week's 105 temps. I have visited a local pond a couple times this week that is home to a pair of Green Herons as well as a pair of Kingfishers, lots of Wood Ducks and a bunch of other birds. Here is one of the photos of a Green Heron. Let's see those photos!
  2. Summer solstice sunset.

  16. Nathan, looking at the EXIF info, I can tell you, we've all been there before. I have my custom functions setup on the 7D; C1 for stationary (or slow moving) objects, and C2 for BIF. I've had more than one occasion where I mindlessly switched from a C2 subject to a C1 subject without actually changing the dial. Grrrr.
    Robin Smith - great sunset photo!
    Jeff Spirer - the guy on the right looks out of place with the top of his head chopped off - almost like he was Photoshopped in later. I like the high key background.
    Peter Meade - I'm glad you gave a bit of background because that guy doesn't look like a horse at all. ;-) He looks happy!
    Warning: do not try to out-stare this photo.
  17. Here's one I took recently, at a restaurant in Dubai.
  18. A lucky shot at the right moment .
  19. I did nothing again this past week between summer school and the weather. Happily, summer school ends tomorrow so I will have my mornings back. This is a different shot of the same Least Bittern I posted a few weeks ago.
  20. Go get it young fella .
  21. Red Shoulder hawk
  22. Warm early evening.

  30. Great shots to all!
    Been busy with life, but managed to squeeze in a few shots of a hibiscus once the weather broke....
  31. We went from heat wave to T-storms and drenching rain in one jump. I took advantage of a brief break in the showers yesterday to get this...
  32. Male Cardinal. I had two nests this year.
  33. kts


    was at one of the wetlands in the metroparks this past Sunday morning where there were a way above normal amount of great blue herons....there were probably 12-15 of them with the regular cast of a few green herons, some ducks and kingfishers....last year you'd be doing good if you seen 2-3 at any one time but with the medium drought were having i'm guessing the low water conditions are making it a lot easier for them to catch fish....instead of another bird shot mine is from a part of the wetlands that was under about a foot of water last year.
  34. Glass of tea after morning walk. Nathan you are right this temperature and humidity reduction feels great.
  35. The Nubble Light
    York, Maine at Cape Neddick last week.
    7D, 85 1.8, f/8. (almost 3PM in afternoon, so I was lucky with decent light)
    ---> Mark K. your photo is truly tripped out!
  36. Anyone know of a simple on-line editor where I could easily add a border? The site I used to use got swallowed by Google!
    It took me a while to realize this tree was not actually a tree!
  37. Rob I love your sunflowers shot. Obviously the one lone flower sticking its head up to take a look around makes it. Did you create that (great idea), or was it something you noticed (good eye)?
  38. here it's been cold and raining. So it's a food week for me.
    5d2, 100 2.8Lis macro, lunchtime treat.
  39. From a beetle in the garden this week. 5DM2, 100mm f/2.8 Macro @ f/10, Diffused flash, cropped.
  40. Pushing the envelope last night. This one was at ISO 25,600, obviously no noise reduction, at EF 100-400mm, 100mm, f/4.5, 1/4 second hand-held. My hope was for a Hopper homage, but I think it may be closer to Jackson Pollack :
    To a small child with a hammer (in my case, my new 100-400mm), the entire world looks like a nail.
  41. Here is my contribution for this week:
  42. You spin me round... :)
