  1. I was born at Ft Sill but my grandparents lived in Marlow.
  2. If you're not sure about rain, wait until you see or even hear about these spinny things that fling around cars and cows and all manner of things that don't normally fly. 😃
  3. I have a great memory as a child of visiting my grandparents in south central Oklahoma and seeing one of those flying around and sitting in a tree.
  4. I don't know about everybody, but I use Photoshop Elements because I'm not looking for "likes" or stars, just taking pictures of birds. The only thing I generally do is adjust the lighting to see the bird better and crop to remove extraneous stuff.
  5. Never heard of that one. Interesting looking bird.
  6. There were at least 2 types of Swallows zooming around a pond and in this picture you can see why.
  7. Another Spring day. Overcast then sunny then raining, all while windy. Oh well, at least I got out there.
  8. I don't think that's going to work. Did it?
  9. I've never taken a picture of a Mallard before this one but I couldn't pass it up.
  10. Because too many humans are ignorant and single-minded. They're willing to kill one bird to try and save a different one and even though that's been happening for a while, the Spotted Owl population continues to decline.
  11. Seems like an unusual location for one of those.
  12. IMO, unless you're looking to sell pictures or get a lot of high scores or "likes", Elements is more than adequate, plus you don't have to pay some never ending monthly or yearly fee.
  13. That's what the far end of a telephoto lens is for. 🙂
  14. I never knew that there was a site to upload pictures where random people could vote on them. Personally, I take pictures for my own enjoyment and DGAF what others think, and nor do I seek some stranger's approval. To each their own.
  15. While reading emails before work, I heard a noise and looked up to this guy pecking the lower part of my windshield and then he looked up. I was able to get a fair picture through the windshield.
