In response to Reply # 0



Got this chubby fellow in my back yard a couple weeks ago. I fired off a lot of frames as he ran around in the trees. I like this one because he has nut crumbs on his face and you can see bits of nut in the air toward the bottom of the frame.

The Framed Fox
I don't normally do wildlife, but happened across a family of red foxes playing in a field. I stopped and tried to get as close as I could. All of the youngsters scattered except this one, who darted behind a fence and just watched me as I approached. The backlighting was horrible, but I think the D80 meter handled it pretty well. Info: 18-200VR; 1/200 @ f5.6; ISO 200.

KADerrick,

If we have a photo to post on "Nature at its Best", do we upload through Galleries or is there another forum?

Hi and thanks for participating!

I was wondering you list this as taken with a Sony P200, this is for photos taken only with a D80, or was this a typo?

Thanks Jim

#18. ""Hare-iette""
In response to Reply # 0
Thu 13-Mar-08 02:09 PM by JHzlwd


Here's my first contribution.

... Nikon D80
... 70 - 300mm Nikkor (the new one - what a sweet lens!)
... 300mm FL
... F5.6
... 1/400s
... ISO500
... 30% central crop
... Range: About 40 ft.

This lens impresses me more all the time. Here you see it at its worst: almost wide open and at full zoom. It is still very sharp.

"Hare-iett" lives in our yard much of the year. It's the mountain ash berries that keep her there.


Best wishes,
JH

Jim, nice picture
This is a crop of a larger image, I assume.
Has the original photo sectors of the picture in focus?
What focus system did you used?
Thanks

"Butterfly Dream"

Caught this one at Memphis Botanic Gardens last summer. I mistakenly shot it at ISO 400 when I forgot to reset ISO after trying to shoot a hawk in deep shade under the trees. I think the higher ISO added just a tad of graininess which with the shallow dof resulted in a nice soft dreamlike effect. Just goes to show you that it's better to be lucky than good sometimes
Oh, I did not notice until I started PP that I managed to catch a bee (yellowjacket?) that appears to be hitching a ride on the left lower rear wing. I shot in continuous mode, and checking the next frame showed that the bee was apparently just flying by very near to the butterfly. Info: ISO 400; 70mm 1/1250 at f.4

We had two hawks in the tree but one left before we could get to the window to shoot. From the noise they made, we assume they were nesting close by.

Welcome to Spring in Portage, MI
There is a little history behind this: It's Friday, March 21. If I had taken this picture as late as 10:00 this morning, you would not have seen any snow. This was taken shortly after 4:00 - you are looking at 7 inches of new snow. We COULD four or five more by Saturday morning. I think this qualifies as Nature doing her best work of some kind.
Enough rambling:

Our last major fall of the year was also our largest. While I was out getting some neighbourhood shots, I saw this mobile mountain of snow swirling down the street towards my house. I had planned to get a shot of him and his cloud of white stuff as he passed by but just as i was turning to face him he pulled a wheel-spinning donut at the corner and headed back the way he'd come with his foot still pasted to the floor.

David,

Thanks for the kind words. It was very late afternoon with the sun behind and to the left just above the horizon. I cropped it quite a bit and, as a result, lost a little in resolution. Wish I had taken more care in framing and not had to crop, but hey, live and learn. Thanks again.

Jeff

Welcome to Nikonians! the process seems complicated when you first try it, but gets very easy once you have done it a couple times. I don't know if the way I do it is the best, but it works for me (at least most of the time!)

First, click on "reply". If you are posting an image in this thread, and not simply replying to one of the other posts in the thread, then be sure to click on "reply" under the original post of the thread.

2nd: Below the text box you will see a link: "Click here to choose your attachments". Click on this and it will bring up a separate window that lets you browse your own system to identify the image you want to post. Follow the steps in this browse window to pick your image. (make sure you "size" your image before you start this process. The guidelines for posting are 900 pixels on the longest side and maximum file size of 150KB. Your processing software has its own way of doing this, but if you need help, I would suggest posting separately, identifying the software you are using and asking someone who uses that software also to help). Once you have finished, close the window and you should see a file number appear in the blacnk are to the right of "Attachment" which is right below the text box.

3rd: Make sure you click on the little box that tells the system you want to "subscribe" to the thread so that you will get an email whenever anyone posts on the thread - including a possible response to your post.

4th: Click on the "Post Message" button at the bottom.

Good luck and if you you still have problems, perhaps Jim or one of the other Moderators can give you a hand.

Jeff

Thank you guys for your replies. I'm figuring it out and realized that both of you are either a silver/gold member. Which means that I need to probably purchase a membership to be able to upload photos. Thanks again.

You can post your images off site and provide links in your message. That's what I do, although my site is down right now so I can't offer a working example.

Sorry, but this is with a D40X (before I got my D80) and a 70-300 AF-S VR at 300 mm in daylight with just a UV filter. It's from my wife's garden. Hope it's actually attached. Haven't done this before.

I think you have learned really well! Gorgeous color! The only suggestions I could make would be to back off the saturation just a tad (which is probably a personal and subjective kind of thing) and compositionally, maybe move the bench a little more to the right side of the frame. Even so, very nice image.

Hi,

I've been lurking here occasionally since last summer. I did do a Nikonians D80 workshop last October. I spend my online time on a scuba forum, but thought that the nature theme was a good opportunity for me to contribute here with some images that might be a bit different from what is ususally seen in this forum.

This shot was taken on 2/29/2008 off Anacapa Island, California. The subject is a Spanish Shawl nudibranch (Flabellina iodinea).

That's a delightful shot, Ron. Is it a Turtle Dove or maybe a Laughing Dove? Looked this up in my bird reference book (UK) and it looks similar, but the Collared Dove is most common here. Whichever, you've captured the bird and the sunlight beautifully. Most inspiring for me as I earned my 'Silver' stripe today! Thanks.

Hi Ron (and Mary)

Not sure where you live. I live in southern California. This looks like a Mourning Dove to me. We have a lot of them in our area. They're sweet birds.

In response to Reply # 105



Hi Jeff,

I had never heard of or seen them before either. For some reason they're hanging around parts of our neighborhood right now. After we got a good look at them last night I did some Internet searching and just guessed that they might be called hummingbird moths and found them.

In response to Reply # 106



Hi Lisa, Ron, Jeff,

We have started to see these beautiful moths in southern England in the last two or three years, but only when it gets warm enough here -much too early (and cold!) yet. But I'll also be watching out for them in a month or two and hope to get some shots. They're pretty fast movers, though...

Original size 1944 X 2896, 300dpi, NIKON D80, no flash, 1/60 sec., shutter priority, lens set to 50mm, slightly overcast afternoon, no exposure compensation; no post editing other than re-sizing to fit this forum; tripod-mounted self-protrait; Saturday, 26 APR 2008, Tacoma WA. Ignore me, and notice the tree to my left (your right), it has spring buds with autumn leaves; the tree in the background over my left shoulder is still in winter hibernation mode, such as been the state of the weather here! The American flag verifies the reddish color.
This is one nice camera; I love the way it caught the red trim in my running shoes and the ruby in my ring--you'll have to see the full-size version to appreciate that



I LOVE the D80!

I live on the Ohio River in Newburgh, Indiana, so I have opportunities from October through January each year to capture great sunrise and sunsets. The attached sunrise was taken with my D80 18-135 combination back in November 2006

#112. "RE: Ohio River Sunrise"
In response to Reply # 111



I just posted my first attachment(Ohio River Sunrise) to Nikonians and I noticed how crappy it looks compared to the original. I had to down size it considerably to fit within the 150k limit but it appears that attachments by other members look reaaly good even though they were also downsized. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or how to do it better? Thanks.

Denny
