  1. Today
  2. That's definitely an upgrade and takes it from a decent shot to one of my best. I'll be adding that back to my personal album and trying to replicate the results.
  3. Some action the past 24 hours: 2` Emperor Geese in Skagit County, WASHINGTON (down to 1 bird, hunters got the other one.) Lark Bunting in St. Clair County, MICHIGAN https://ebird.org/checklist/S98508906 Allen's Hummingbird in Cincinnati, OHIO (2nd state record) https://ebird.org/checklist/S98531011 Tropical Kingbird in Rockport, MASSACHUSETTS https://ebird.org/checklist/S98526761 Townsend's Solitaire in Hampden County, MASSACHUSETTS https://ebird.org/checklist/S98459439 Pink-footed Goose in Montgomery County, PENNSYLVANIA https://ebird.org/checklist/S98541096 Short-tailed Albatross on a pelagic off Lincoln County, OREGON
  4. Considering how many of these I've seen, you'd think I would've had a better photo of one.
  5. Wowie, for real?? That’d be awesome! I’ll tag you in “feedback on editing attempts”.
  6. hello, everyone http://ngoinhachung.net/diendan/space-uid-1054275.html http://xn--8prw0a.net/home.php?mod=space&uid=6082666 http://thedemonslair.us/wiki/index.php?title=Top_10_Greatest_Human_Hair_Wigs_For_202 http://deletedbyfacebook.com/profile.php?section=personality&id=1117195 https://bookmarking.win/story.php?title=human-hair-topper-on-the-market#discuss [url=https://3dfireside.xyz/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=49995]I am glad to come this forum[/url] [url=https://www.pc-boost.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9030]I am glad to come this forum[/url] [url=https://forum.ckcorp.ru/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=35253]I am glad to come this forum[/url] [url=http://yliaow.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=30179&pid=960090&page=21192&extra=page%3D1#pid960090]I am glad to come this forum[/url] [url=http://calikusuoguzhukuk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21387]I am glad to come this forum[/url] 1013325
  7. I upload my images to my iPad each time I take pictures. I store it in the photos app.
  8. Seriously, give me links to some on ebird you want, and I’ll do some!
  9. Ok, so with a DSLR, if the background is at least a little far away, it will already be blurred, so I’m not sure what you mean by “ then blur the background”. I do outline the bird and apply sharpening only to the bird, so it doesn’t increase any noise in the background. Then, I do some other sliders that affect contrast, saturation, color temp, and exposure.
  10. For sure Common Goldeneye, for both in the last photo too
  11. Whoah, that Martin is awesome!
  12. When you edit, do you have to outline the bird to get it to sharpen just the bird, and then blur the background? Or is it just a few sliders?
  13. I have zero experience with BTGR, so I couldn't confidently say.
  14. Mine go from the SD card to my computer after every photo session.I no longer leave my photos on the computer for more then 1 month. Then they go on the External hard-drive. These are the ones I use. They have never failed me yet, I have a few of them. https://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Elements-Portable-External/dp/B06W55K9N6/ref=asc_df_B06W55K9N6/?tag=&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309779531175&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5722027875412102334&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031411&hvtargid=pla-301232220719&ref=&adgrpid=62412137260&th=1
  15. I've been building a little catalog on Smugmug: https://michaelerb.smugmug.com/Birds. I'm pretty pleased with it so far, but the downsides are that I have to pay for it and I think I'm the only one who visits that page. For sharing with people, I post here and on Facebook. flickr seems like a good free option.
  16. Whoops, you're right. I've been thinking about Great Egrets today and forgot to even check. Thanks!
  17. Here's one of a Great Egret. It's slightly out of focus, and it has some strange muscles showing along the edge of its wing. Is that a wound, or just something that's normally covered by feathers?
  18. Not new to my yard list, but we had a Purple Martin of all things fly by our yard yesterday. Extremely crazy sighting at this time of year. Just got confirmed today after having to rule out other martins, since they're probably almost as likely in December. https://ebird.org/checklist/S98522695 One bird that was new to my yard list today though was Herring Gull. :) Pretty overdue considering proximity to a large body of water, but better late than never!
