    I never thought you did. I never thought I'd just watch at times. I was an avid hunter, but now, I find myself wanting to hunt less. Perhaps it's the work involved, and plus getting little tender hearted. Same with fishing.
    why you so serious!

    Just noticed this thread. I love nature and wildlife, and I appreciate your pictures.
    The picture in your OP of the tractor in the field brings out the nostalgia in me.

    OK, not an in focus shot. Looked out the window and saw a song bird on the fence. Over loosen the knob on the tripod gimble and the camera lens just drops, so I re-adjust, and quickly try and get a focus and as I get focus, he takes off. Hence the reason the fence is in focus, but he's not. Fortunately, I had experimented yesterday with faster shutter speeds, so while the camera would normally be sitting at 1/320 or so, it was on 1/1000, but still probably needed a faster shutter speed than that.

    So, even though the bird is blurry, I think it's a cool shot.

    Birds are active after a thunderstorm just rolled through.

    Not the greatest pictures. I guess this was a big crow in the trees quite a ways off. Full zoom on the 500mm lens. I saw waiting, hoping I could get some in flight shots, but they aren't very good. I'm going to definitely improve my skill in this regard.

    A few song birds. Really trying to work on capturing them in flight when they take off. Mixed results, but getting better. I think the high shutter speed, and sun going down led to too high an ISO and more grain than I would like.

    Some more max zoom (and then some cropping in lightroom) of a couple cardinals that landed in a dead tree 150' or so away.

    Took the dogs out back for a little while. They got HOT, as it's hot and humid.

    Caught a song bird (no idea what type) on a hunting mission a few minutes ago. This was kind of cool, although I did want to call PETA on him for the inhumane treatment of that grass hopper.

    Was sitting on the back deck this morning with the dogs before work and saw a couple woodpeckers fly by and land in a tree. Had a smaller zoom lens with me and no tripod and it was a ways off, so not overly sharp, but I still like the picture. Same dead tree the Cardinals were in the other day, but I was farther away on this shot, fortunately the woodpeckers are bigger.

    They actually are pretty big. Not huge, but bigger than song birds. When they first flew by, I wasn't sure what they were until the landed.

    These aren't from the exact same angle or using the same lens/zoom, so I couldn't really scale them identical, but you can look at the broken stump the wood pecker is on for reference and compare his size to the two cardinals.
