Yes, I want to buy both the Sony A9 AND the Nikon D850 so I can take better pictures. Which ever one I choose, I will give the other one to my 7 year old grandson. He likes taking pictures too! I am leaning toward the Sony because with the Nikon, you have to buy a battery grip in order to get 9fps. How stupid is that? The Sony shoots at 12fps without one. My dilemma is this; most people on UHH poo-poo the EVF that Sony uses because they say it's not real. Well, we watch television, don't we? I wonder what lens I should get? And if I go on a trip, can I still take either one as carry on if I travel by air? After all, they are big! And what should I shoot at when I get there?

Here is an example of what I am talking about. My camera only has a 26.5 mp APS-C sensor. I shot this photo with a stock lens and I was about 259 yards away. I had to enlarge and crop this picture just to see these egrets at all. Is photoshop a good program for this sort of thing or, am I just wasting my money It costs me about $11.00 a month with tax. I guess I could spend that money at Starbucks instead.
I have never seen this many egrets together before.

Funny but I thought the same thing. I had better go and check my birding book just to make sure. I did have 2 beers tonight with Pizza.

Yes, Geese! You might want to lay-off drinking the used Dektol a bit! If similar to a Heron - That mistake would be forgivable.

Unless they are serving something strongly alcoholic which is what the OP seemed to be on. Though as suggested Dektol, D76, HC-110 might do it too. The latter barfing anyway.

Those aren't egrets. They are most definitely the rare feathered reticulated python. It' s really easy to tell the difference by looking at their necks - much shorter necks than the egrets. Are you off your meds again?

Astute observation millman221... can you explain to me how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes?
