  1. Thank you very much Lonestranger, if bad pics with a good story on the pics is what you like, then this thread I started, which has yet to get a comment, falls right into that description. J Wood Duck
  2. Thanks as well Spyonabird, I very much appreciate your comments. Browsing this thread has had me a bit overwhelmed with the magnificent photos. I have a question for any of my learned and sage shutterbugs. I have an old Nikon FM (film) from my shutterbug days in the 80's. I still have it and more importantly the Nikkor lenses which were expensive back then and probably even more today. They are a 55 macro, a 105 mm and a 200 mm, with a 2 x adapter. These lenses have a standard bayonet style mount. Are they compatible with the modern Nikon cameras such as the D 7200, which is one I've been looking at. The Canon SX 60 point and shoot is ok, but the auto focus drives me crazy. I've lost so many shots because of it. Any suggestions as to a modern camera body that will fit my Nikkor lenses? Thanks for any answers. House Finch

  5. Making A Choice At The Drive Through This female has a nest about 50 yards into the woods from our pond that is next to the house. Last spring, she was abandoning her normal nocturnal habits as she had mouths to feed back at the nest ( We could hear what sounded like a couple of owlets). She would show up with an hour or two of daylight left and perch overlooking the pond. I know where the hollowed out tree is where she has her nest but we have avoided the area to give her some privacy. We did not see her much over the summer months, but started seeing her again in Oct. She would show up right at dusk with very little shooting light left. Our resident Barred Owl. None of the above. The winning choice is muskrat. The drake had to check out the commotion of the owl dispatching the rat which took about 5 sec. Stupid auto focus.
  6. Just joined. First post here. I've browsed through this thread and can tell that I'm amidst some topnotch photographers. Great photos everyone. I was amazed at how great they are and had thoughts of just lurking here and not posting, as mine are not nearly as nice. I know it said best photo (as in one), but I thought I'd throw in a few in that it's my first post. My wife and I retired 3 years ago and moved from the big city where we had been our entire lives, and bought a country home in the upper middle section of Michigan's lower peninsula complete with pond and some acreage. Never a dull moment looking out the window. Shot from inside with a Canon SX 60.
