    • Coppersmith Barbet, Suan Luang Rama IX, Bangkok. These colorful little birds are widespread in Asia but I was lucky to find one delivering food to its nestlings.  
    • Waiting for Costco to open, Panasonic GF1, 14-45mm Zoom.
    • Basic Guidelines: In the strictest sense, nature photography should not include "hand of man elements". Please refrain from images with buildings or human made structures like roads, fences, walls. Pets are not permitted. Captive subjects in zoos, arboretums, or aquariums are permitted, but must be declared, and must focus on the subject, not the captivity. Images with obvious human made elements will likely be deleted from the thread, with an explanation to the photographer. Guidelines are based on PSA rules governing Nature photography which also cover the Nature Forum. Keep your image at/under 1000 pixels on the long axis for in-line viewing. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site at Flicker, Photobucket, your own site, etc. Each member please post no more than just one image to this weekly thread per week. If the information is available, many members appreciate information on your approach to making the image and the names, both common and scientific, of the subject(s). However, while encouraged, these are not required as a component of your contributions. ------------------------------------------------------------ July is going by quickly. The female osprey has spotted an intruding osprey in the distance and is compelled to leave the nest to confront and drive the intruder away. D500, 500PF/TC-14EIII - a case of "too much focal length" - the osprey was getting very close and I certainly didn't have time to take the TC off. Dusted off my "old trusty" D500  and mounted the neglected 500PF with the TC-14EIII to as closely as possible get to the same FOV as with the Z9/800PF combo. Stopped down from f/8 to f/9 to somewhat overcome the sharpness loss due to the TC (that's one stop loss from the f/6.3 I use on the Z9/800PF). Hard to fathom that the D500 is an 8-year old camera model by now! The 500PF was released in Aug 2018 - some six years ago!
