Any photographers in the house?

Thanks!

That's a fantastic shot, Tanglebones.

I seem to have the worst timing when it comes to raptors hunting. I always end up showing up too early or too late, or finding the bird who apparently never successfully eats. In Alaska I got a great shot of a juvenile bald eagle catching a piece of plastic trash in a stream....

Hoping to get luckier this year!

We went to the Butterfly Pavilion this weekend. I only have my 50mm since the vast majority of my photography is portraits, so I have a lot of blurry shots of butterflies as my camera struggled to get focus. But I did get this one, and I can't believe the detail it captured.

A couple pictures of the weird lights from the fall.

Gorgeous butterfly! Great stalking skills, too, to get that close with a 50mm prime.

Cool light photos, too! Really like the top one.

Here are some outtakes from this weekend's photography. Not sharp enough to use for anything, but I still liked something in each of 'em.

Hello, it's just me again. Filling up the thread.
This poor Leopard Frog didn't have a great weekend. Egret was pretty stoked, though.

Nice work. How often are you out there?

Thank you very much!

I try to get out to one preserve or another every time I can. After work, weekends, "sick" days.

If the weather isn't so horrible that there's no light to expose a photo with, I try to be outside. Especially this time of year where between work and the long winter I am just dying to be outdoors.

Trying something a bit different with the post production here. Feral, around the corner from my office:

I like it! Good subject separation despite the patterns and shadows. Nice and sharp without being TOO sharp / noisy. Great expression. Super good.

Cat's right (our left) whiskers look extra "thick" for some reason. Trick of lighting / processing? Or just some good-ass whisker genes?

Just the light, I think
