Leafing through shots of a few weeks ago I came across this Redpoll shot that I liked. Too cold and snowy here right now to get any new ones. Hopefully it will warm up a touch on the weekend and the blasted snow will stop.

That sure is a pretty bird and you've got it nice and sharp. It has been raining here most of the week but it started clearing up some today. Tomorrow is part cloudy and part sunny and I have the day off so I'm going about 80 miles south of here to a plantation that just might have something interesting. Wish me luck.

Thanks Houston

I've been looking at reviews on that outhouse blind and everyone says it's great but the struggle with takedown is also mentioned. If you have any tips, since you're the expert on this blind, I'd appreciate hearing them. I haven't received the blind yet, and probably won't for a few weeks.

And good luck on your bird venture.

I agree with Woodmeister. The lights seem exposed just to the farthest point possible before becoming washed out, therefore allowing for more detail to be seen in the darks. Very nice.

Thanks all, I'm having a bit of luck on a grey day in my weekend excursion away from home. Hopefully tomorrow will be a nice blue sky day so I can get a few more to post later next week.

Alady, print? That's expensive. No, I don't print too many, and when I do they are usually small 6x4" postcard sized. My leafing is like many of you other penny pinchers (saving for more lenses), purely in-puter.
