    What a difference a day makes

    We've been watching a birds nest in our yard to see when the baby would be hatched. Took a shot yesterday and this little guy was still in the nest, eyes closed. Today he's ready to explore the world. I was very happy to capture this shot because I don't think I'll get another opportunity... DMR and 100mm

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Well David, if you locked the door to your store you'd still have a DMR Much as I love my Nikon D3 I just know it won't deliver like the Leica. Robsteve actually noticed my reflection in the bird's eye. He's got some pretty good eyes himself to see that.

    I wish Guy. Doug has forgotten more about these kinds of shots than I'll ever know. Meanwhile, my wife has been walking around sad all day now that the birds have left the nest. I think it's a mother thing

    I just knew someone was going to ask me for an ID... which is why I took these pics of the parents. No sense in my pretending I know anything about birds. I can tell the difference between a pelican and a flamingo or a pigeon and a parrot but that's about it. Got the same problem with plants which is why I get poison ivy whenever I walk in the woods

    actually in JP I think they were pterasaurs

    but birds aren't descended from either, although most trust they are dinosaurs.

    But then many say I am so descended as well

    Recently, enough of a scrap of protein was recovered from a T. rex bone to determine that T. rex is more closely related to birds than to modern reptiles.
