Thanks! Actually it's not a good pic because the white is blown. Photographing white and black in birds is difficult, esp without a dslr. But I do what I can do and to us it looks good.

You go get that photo and put it in...... You can hear me nice and bold now can't you?
Let Dave be the judge of that one and...... never mind worrying about that white!
I'd like to see someone else win besides me.... I'm feeling like a game hog over there.
I was going to stop submitting photos into the P.O.M. but they tell me I'd be missed.......
It's really nice to be wanted but I do feel a bit guilty about winning so many in a row
Go get em ~Sage~

For instance if you tell me you just read this. Your comment will be below my entry. If you comment below post #6 and we've already had 53 posted comments in the thread your comment will show up as #54

Hope this has helped you understand things a little better.
havalotta, i *just* read this (a day later). Thanks for taking the time to explain. I've also started jumping between hybrid and linear modes--that is helping me find my place more.

Thanks again.

Thanks again.
BTW, I just searched for my response above. When viewed in hybrid mode, it *does* branch off and does not appear on the bottom as it must in linear mode.

I've enjoyed catching up on several threads while viewing in hybrid mode...it allows me to see how things relate--my only problem has been on rare occassions messages that had appeared as 'unread' suddenly appear as all read (even though I had not opened/viewed them yet). Anyway, thanks for trying to help...I'll keep muddling my way through with trial and error with the view options.

Once you have logged in, you will see how many unread posts you have in the upper right hand corner....
Those are the posts people have put in since you last visited the sight.

As you read those, the number obviously lessens, however......
If you should log off and then come back into the sight at a later time.... it will now have a new number of unread posts in that same area.
I think it figures you have read all that you had cared to read and starts the count all over again ...showing only the NEWEST posts you've missed.

If you have not finished reading all the posts you had wanted to .... All you need to do is click onto the unread posts area in the upper right and then scroll down past the unread posts to find the ones you haven't read yet......

dragonfly01 Chicken pix

Lorax, to get photos of birds that move, set the selector on your camera to action photos. The icon is usually a skier - looks kinda like a lightning zag with a ball (head) on top. I have some nice photos of birds landing at the hanging feeders, so I know it works. And you don't have to stick to chickens any more. Unless you want to. have fun...

Lorax, what is your cam make/model again? If you have an "S" on the dial, that's for shutter speed. To catch birds or other moving targets, you need as high a shutter speed, e.g., 1/800, as you can get. It will be determined by other conditions, esp. lighting. When you press the button, if you get a reprimanding sound from the camera or you see red back off on the high speed a bit til you get the nice sound .

You cannot use automatic settings with much success when shooting moving subjects.

Default I believe this is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk...

...although it could be a Rough-legged Hawk. The pics aren't really clear enough to be decisive. Because of that I usually wouldn't share them but these aren't completely without merit.

Here he is on the treetop

He's checking me out as I stealthily approach him (yeah right)

He doesn't want anything to do with me. His decision came at an advantageous time for me, coinciding with a shutter click.

A crop of the first image. What do you think is on his mind right now, and what's on the mind of the little guy? I just love this image. I wish I had the equipment/know-how to catch these moments better.

I had to pull over for an ambulance today and when I did, I saw this gull feeding on a small fish (probably caught and left by an ice fisherman) with a couple of crows keeping close in on him. I pulled over and started taking some pics of their interaction. Off camera a third crow was keeping a second gull from getting close. The first gull eventually took off with the fish but dropped it and the crows went at it. As I left, the gulls were mounting a counter-offensive.
