  1. I am confused, yeah, yeah, it happens easily at times. There are too many references to "this" photo for me to figure out which comment is supposed to go with which photo. Personally, I like the lighting, and pose, better in the photo posted by @dragon49 than the linked photo you posted. Is that what you were trying to say, or do you prefer the lighting of the linked photo better? Like I said, I'm confused here.
  2. 22 inches is a pretty big wingspan, @Dave O. I'm not sure about their wings being falcon shaped, but a Ruffed Grouse sort of fits your description. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Ruffed_Grouse/id

  4. I think it's going to be a tough week for J's. Buteo jamaicensis
  5. The Red-bellied Woodpeckers have provided me lots of entertainment, and opportunities to practice my tracking skills as they fly back and forth to and from the feeders. During this one sequence of shots the Red-bellied flew low in front of all the equipment you see that the camera could have focused on, but the eye detect focus stayed locked on the bird throughout the entire sequence. It's not really a photo worth sharing, but at the same time it's one of those photos that shows the potential of the eye detection tracking of the R6, and I thought that was worth sharing. Straight out of the camera full sized jpg. The above photo would have been very frustrating if I hadn't captured these images in the two previous frame.

  7. FWIW, I didn't think it needed clarifying. If the guy on the other side of the mirror is being straight with you, he'll tell you if you need to worry about your reputation in the eyes of other birders, or in any other aspect of life.
  8. I can't help but wonder if gravity stole the jelly away before the Oriole could enjoy it..
