    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!

  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.

    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.

  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.

  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.
