    A good Nikon Wednesday, everybody. We like to put suet out for the woodpeckers and their many carnivorous cousins. Keeps the view out the kitchen window interesting.

    Spring must be getting close, because that feeder is now getting cleaned out by these other cute, red-headed songbirds. Some sort of nuthatch or wren, I think. More signs of spring where you live? Share!

  2. Speaking of flying things, I was shooting at a client's place Tuesday morning, and needed to get some high-angle shots of an interesting new piece of his inventory. I brought along the big hexa-drone, as well as the smaller quadcopter for backup. Here's those two machines and their associated ground station hardware piled onto the back of a truck bed while I set up and waited for the light to be right.

  3. It's finally warmed up a bit, but I haven't been able to get out and shoot anything yet. During the cold weather last week I took a break from working on an old Yashica rangefinder and snapped a few pics of the inner workings. Just playing around really. All shots were taken with a D600, 55/3.5 Micro, and PK-13 extension tube.

  4. I used to work rehabbing wildlife; those cute red-headed nuthatches have a nasty habit of regurgitating their last meal (usually something fetid) onto whoever is bothering them. I've never seen one at a backyard feeder - I hesitate to ask what you place in your feeders!
    They say a moon ring presages a storm. Shot this last night. Storm is forecast for tomorrow. Hopefully the last of winter.

  8. Its been a very long, cold winter here in Long Island, New York.
    Yesterday, Mother Nature decided to break the ice, with an nice warm day, so I took the opportunity to visit the local duck pond to see how my "friends" were doing.
    I managed to capture a solo duck in action.

  10. here's a live shot from last weekend.
     
  11. I got a chance Saturday to use my new 80-400 mm Nikon lens. I shot 3 rugby matches that my grandsons participated in over a 2/12 hour period. The auto focus with the lens and the D800 was great. Thank goodness I used a monopod; the combination is really heavy.

  17. How not to take a macro. Take an old, fast lens, put it on tubes, use wide open. Soft, especially at the edges; vignette; and somewhat dreamy.

  18. Local bike race, reacquainting myself with my Nikon 35 f1/8 prime lens.

  25. Went out into the garden once the snow melted to find winter blossoms - the Daffodils are pushing up but the Helleborus blossoms were damaged by snow. The only attractive blossoms this week were the Witch Hazels.

  30. Hello dear Nikonistans and have a very good day! Love your shots, mine is a sign of how small we look sometimes...Cheers!

  31. Rick, Nice shot of that Cooper's Hawk. Looks like he was giving you the "Evil Eye"
     
  32. Good afternoon, all! Posting a shot taken the other weekend at a local country estate.
    00cRfS-546158384.jpg
     
  33. Finally, a few Cedar Waxwings, surely a sign of spring. There were only a few of them and they were just sitting, with a few small peeps occasionally. They must have been exhausted. I love these birds. Rick D., jealous.

    I think these are unladen African swallows.

    Last weekend, I was at Indian Wells in southern California to watch tennis. This is their brand new Number Two Stadium court with a restaurant overlooking the action.

  40. Wonderful shots everyone. The white pelicans are around again and I am enjoying them.
    Also a shot of a daisy, sure sign of spring , even if I had to purchase it.
    Hope you enjoy.

  41. [​IMG]This is what it looked like last Wednesday in my area of Candiac Quebec and over the next 24 hours we are expecting a foot of snow which will probably all be melted by the end of this month - hopefully.

  42. JDM, I love your unladen African swallows! (Shot in Africa presumably since they're nonmigratory.)
     
  43. Hi to all Nikon Wednesday contributors.
    Among many good photos of this week, I loved the macro of John F, bird of Richard A., Tennis Court of Shun and daisy and (the first) pelican of Roberta most. Below is an early sign of spring from where I live.

  46. Happy Wednesday everyone. Lovely photos as always. I particularly enjoyed Tony Hadley's snowy landscape.
    Here is a quick snap of our black lab taken with my Sigma 10-20mm. Unfortunately I managed to get my feet in the shot!

  48. Greetings to all! Yesterday was gorgeous, today ... much less so. I think I'm going to find some blankets and hibernate for awhile.

  49. I'm late to the party this week, so this one will have to do. My daughter and I were on a real estate shoot this past weekend and I told her to get behind me so she wouldn't be in the shot. She fits into small spaces!

  52. Mark H - that's one of the more elegant, simple, and beautiful abstract images I've seen in a long time, thank you for sharing it. Well done.
     
  53. Mark H--I agree with Patrick--great photo--I'd have never thought of taking that--super!
