The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest
This forest is home to the oldest recorded living thing, a Bristlecone Pine named Methuselah which is dated to be 4765 years old. Due to time restraints we were only able to do the shorter hike (it was getting late) so we had to settle for seeing a 4000 year old tree! If you ever have the chance to see these ancient beauties you will not be disappointed!
Bagged a Bullock's Oriole by my house!
Such a pretty bird! Just before dark...ISO 1600, SS 1/25th, F 6.9 at full zoom again nearly 750MM equivalent on my canon SX 700 pocket cameras. but I was on my tripod when I spotted this bright Orange spot zipping around in the trees! I been wanting to get a picture of this bird for a few weeks now. Not the greatest quality but I got him! I really enjoyed this Summer evening on my official/legal Birthday!
Plus this Black Headed Grosbeak juvenile male as a freebie at my feeders! A couple pairs the these just arrived. And I am not going to mention a NEW bird for me a Western Kingbird! A pair (actually 3 pairs!) seem to be nesting close by my house next to the pond. No real decent pic of them but see my other new thread asking to verify the accuracy of my ID! .
Trying to improve wildlife photos
These were taken at almost 9 pm in the Colorado mountains. Light diminishing obviously.
They do not seem as sharp as I would hope. Noise? Camera shake? Used spot focus on eye. Too shallow DOF?

Thank you in advance.

Canon 100 - 400MM version I lens vs the Tamron 150 - 600MM new version lens??????
I am debating about selling my older Canon lens for the new version of the TAMRON | SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens. I figure I could sell the cannon lens that would pay for a good part of the Tamron (best price found on net is 920) lens. My question is have any of you guys made this switch and if so what are your thoughts on this or regrets? I know the aperture range is a bit better on the Canon lens. The only other choice would be to sell the canon lens and buy the newer version but would need to cough up another 1K that I really do not have. I did not want to make the switch until I get some additional info on this. Thanks!
I love this photo of all six Thunderbirds screaming skyward in their General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcons.
USED D800 - HOW TO BEST SELL IT
Hello to all.
I just received my D850 last month and love it.
So my D800 with about 52k shutter usage is now for sale and want to ask if there is a place on this forum for selling equipment? I looked but not being IT savvy could not really see anything that suggests there is an equipment for sale section.
If not would anyone have a suggestion that may assist me.
I am in Australia (Bne).
Any guidance would be appreciated.
