  1. Playing turkey vulture on the train tracks is for those that can't find any one stupid enough to play chicken with them on the train tracks.
  2. @Clip, you won so you get the honour of posting the next caption photo.
  3. I think you just described some of the generic problems that apply to most any Point and Shoot cameras regardless of make or model. I use the P900 and it suffers from everything you mention. Buying camera gear is very much like getting the right exposure, you have to pick the right pluses and minuses to trade off in order to get the exposure/features we want. I am big fan of long focal lengths, but the superzoom cameras do have their short comings because of their long lenses.
  4. Thanks, @Bird Brain. Happy Birdday to you, too. 🍻
  5. Lots of good ones but Clip gets the win this time.
  6. Did you forget to take the lens cap off?
  7. If there's such a thing as being TOO agreeable, this might be one of those times.
  8. I like the composition/crop of the edited version but I prefer the original duck over the edited duck. The edited duck looks hazy(for lack of a better word) to me.
  9. Yes, I could put a 2x extender on the 300mm f/2.8 for a 600mm f/5.6 lens, and/or, I could put a 2x and 1.4 extender with the 300mm for a 840mm f/8 combo. I could also use a crop body to increase the focal length another 1.6x. There's lots of options I could work with but I'd rather work with the 100-400mm mark ii lens. 😉
  10. I just have to push him a little bit and he'll slide right off.
  11. Unacceptable!!! True, but still unacceptable.
  12. The video shows as a white screen that won't play for me. I'm not sure how to post a video uploaded to Whatbird, you may want to try uploading your videos to UTube and then copy and paste the link into the message box, that's how I do it.
  13. I remember thinking, during the heat of last summer, that it'd be nice if the nectar was served chilled. This is not what I had in mind.
