This was one spring day in my backyard. Yes, I bait birds with seed and meal worms. I Sat on the deck with a Tamron 150-600 zoom and shot all afternoon.

In Topic: D6 on B&H site

FIVE things will enter in to my decision to get one of these.

1. How many FPS will it have? If 15 or more...YES

2. What will be the cost? (Wife has already said OK, but she gets floors refinished.) We haven't worked out the timeline yet.

3. Who will buy one of my D5's. (If you are reading this, you will get the best discount) 

4. This camera will really help me capture images, but will I still be working? I turn 72 this year. (I need all the help I can get!) Our company has 12 papers now.

5. I get ankle surgery soon, I may not feel like standing at football games or soccer games or...


Has anyone seen a D6 in person yet? I have a friend who is going to Japan for Olympics, but if the D6 is not "out" by then, the cameras will be loaners to the shooters.

My mice have all entered into a humane trap.

In Topic: Most boring time of the year.

My sports activities have moved indoors, I like shooting all sports, but we had a team go to the state final game. I was glad football ended. I opted out of bowl games this year. That might be the plan for the future. This is the time my wife says it time to attend to the honey do list. 

Its been in the low 60˚F in TN so no complaining about the weather. (Sorry Don) We feed the birds so there are a lot of bird photo ops in back. 

If I get bored...I just take a nap. hahaha

I used to hold the stick. I carried a machete and a walkie talkie. We used a David White transit.
