Re: Gear Question

Rick, check out this link at B & H: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1077476-REG/lowepro_lp36776_lens_trekker_600_aw.html?sts=pi Was thinking that it might be perfect for either your 500 or 600 setup. I've got a brand new one that's never been used. Bought it in 2015 just before I started havi...

Belted Kingfisher-Female

Been away from photography for a while but I'm feeling pretty good right now. So I've been working hard this month trying to get my photography skills back. Thought you might enjoy seeing my first photo effort. I was sitting down on a log by one of the back channels along the Stillwater River. Was l...

Re: Kestrel

Great shot, Rod! We had a Kestrel sitting on our tree fence just last week. Felt so sorry for it. It was snowing pretty hard. The Kestrel had to be freezing. We've had quite a few birds flitting around our house this month....some of the regulars that come back every year. But over the past two week...

Re: May 24, 2018

Many thanks for posting such a super report, Linda. It was very, very helpful. And, as for your pix, IMO, they get better and better with each passing year. Considering all the rain and lousy weather we've had lately, I'm surprised that you were able to photograph anything. So please don't be too ha...

Re: Gear Question

Rick, sounds like you've got your gear pretty well covered. But I agree with Max. Since you've got a tripod for your 600, I really don't see the need to bring a monopod. Unless of course, you enjoy being a beast of burden when you're on vacation (hee hee). The 100-400 is usually my go-to lens when I...

Re: Hawk

Beautiful capture, Rod. I might be wrong but I think it's a Cooper's Hawk. We get quite a variety of hawks in the GYE.

Re: May 22, 2018

Mike, thanks for posting...sounds pretty encouraging, at least, for now. Personally, I'm going to reserve judgement on Flickr's performance until we get a bit further down the road....6 months or perhaps a year. This should give Flickr and SmugMug plenty of time to work out all the kinks/account pro...

Re: May 22, 2018

Linda, thanks for the report. I've had problems, off and on, with Flickr for quite some time. That's why I was considering looking for a new site for posting/hosting my pix....got tired of identifying buses, street/road signs, cars and trucks just to get a fuzzy, hard-to-read verification code that ...

Re: Information Wanted - Canon 500 f/4 L IS 11 Worth all of the Hype? Updated... 4-18-2018

I'm so glad that you decided to get the 600 . You won't regret it! It's been on my "drool list" ever since it came out. The carry weight, was the only thing that kept me from getting one, especially, when I started having some health problems. But I'm getting better with each passing day, so the 600...

Re: Trip Report 4/26 to 5/6

Thanks for sharing your trip report, Mike. Wish the weather had been better for you. We had hail at our house, too. No damage, though. May weather is always so unpredictable. But rain never seems to slow down the critters. Glad you got to see as many animals as you did.
