I've been so busy lately I haven't had the chance to get out and shoot much. I was out two weeks ago and shot these at two area wildlife areas and along the highways of Southwest Missouri. This hairy caterpillar absolutely devoured this leaf while I watched and shot pics of him

this hawk decided not to stick around while I shot him with a promaster 70-300 mm. I forgot to say that the catterpillar was also shot with the 70-300 in macro mode. Most of these were taken at Prairie State Park in Barton County, Mo. near the Kansas state line

Another shot at the same hawk. Both the hawk pictures were cropped.

This quail played the broken wing trick as I was walking a trail ar Prairie State Park to lead me away from a young one. Couldn't find the young one.

These clouds preceeded a storm that died before it dropped much rain. Shot with the 18-55 kit lens.

The last one for the evening. This actually turned out to be a two-minute exposure because the lightning just wouldn't happen. Had to be patient.

How did you do 2 min exposure? I know there's a bulb setting but how do you use it? do you keep your finger on the shutter all the time, or on remote relaese? I tried bulb once but I had to keep my finger on the shutter and I can't imagine how to do that for long time, like 10 mins.
