Hello All,

Stopped by the Queens Farm yesterday.

They held their Holiday Festival, in the barn of course. It was cold but mild.

All the animals were out and about.

This dignified fella had alot to be thankful for recently: R-1.

Man, Nicholas, you did it again. Very glad you don't have any coyotes around Queen's to steal this guy away.

What a beautiful photo of a very ugly subject. Can you tell us, please, what your focusing distance was? Is this a large crop, or did you use the macro setting? Thanks in advance, Ria

Hello All,

This free range turkey was a real character.

Ria, He was about 6 feet away and on the other side of a fence.

I held my R-1 over the fence, moved the LCD to a sideways waist level finder position, held the camera as low to the ground as possible and took some shots.

The crop was about 80% of th original image.

Nicholas

Thanks, Nicholas, for sharing those details. The resolution of the feathers on the lower body is very impressive. Ria

From the Autostitch website:

A: There is no Linux/Mac version of Autostitch as yet, though we hope to release versions for these platforms in the future. Autostitch runs under WINE.

Darn. Looks like a great program - I will consider setting up a PC at home; I have several unused at my office. From what I read about the program, it will be worth the effort. Thanks, Nicholas.! Ria
