Topics I've Started

Deer

10 November 2019 - 11:52 AM

Friend Jason suggested looking for Deer this morning at the local cemetery.  Due to the proximity to the green belt, and holes in the perimeter fence, there is a ton of wildlife that roams the place.

 

We were looking for the big buck, but unfortunately, didn't make an appearance this morning.

Fascinating creatures! They walked about us, maybe 20 feet away, not quite like we were invisible but they didn't seem to really care much. I think there was a group of 6, should have counted.

Another Sparrow image with the D5 300 1.4TC combo +CP.

 

Posting these just to show how crisp the images are with the TC.

Juvi Starling

01 November 2019 - 10:59 PM

This little guy didn't look like he was doing too well hobbling along the pathway.  A late bloomer, a little surprising this late in the season.

My guess is it is a Starling.

Nikon C-PL1L Pola Filter - Good Test

01 November 2019 - 04:49 PM

Finally got a subject and the condition I wanted to test the filter and if functions as it is supposed to.  I guess the day I first tested it, it was too dark.  When I turned the gear today, you could notice the changes in the Viewfinder.  Perfect.

 

It is subtle, but again, it is the light I have to work with currently. Heavy overcast and rain.

After turning the gear for maximum effect.  Very nice!

Works as intended.
